Mario and Sonic are back at it again, and this year they’ll be competing for the gold in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. You’ll be able to compete against 3 other friends with more than 30 of your favorite Mario and Sonic characters!

The sports shown off in a brand new trailer are Soccer, Beach Volleyball and the newly added Rugby. 2016 is the first year since 1924 where Rugby will make an appearance in the Olympic Games, and the event is exclusive to the Wii U version of the game.
