Mario, Sonic, Luigi, Knuckles, Yoshi, and Tails will appear together in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, shipping this upcoming holiday season for the Wii and DS.

Though character crossovers are not new, they are nonetheless exciting; who else can't wait for Mario and Snake to go mano-el-mano in Super Smash Bros.? I only wish the meeting of Mario and Sonic was occurring in a venue more original and appropriate to their platforming history than a Track & Field game.
