Publisher Sega has revealed that Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games, the existence of which was exclusively broken by MCV's sister site CasualGaming.biz, will be released in Europe on both Wii and the DS on October 16th.
The dual-SKU release brings both the home and portable versions in line for the first time – there was a gap of over two months between the Wii and DS releases of predecessor Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games.
Speaking of its predecessor, it's clear to see why Sega is keen to get a follow-up onto the shelves. It has topped the UK games charts seven times and continues to sell very strongly a year and a half after its debut.
In March last year it was confirmed that the game had sold 5m copies worldwide.
