Mario & Sonic head to Russia for the Winter Olympics

Sega and Nintendo are teaming up again for a new Mario & Sonic game.

This time the pair of rivals are heading to Russia for the Sochi Winter Olympics. It will have skiing, snowboarding, figure skating, and more.

Sega and Nintendo aren’t talking release details yet. Since this is an officially licensed product of the Olympics, expect it out sometime before the start of the 2014 Winter Games on Feb. 7.

This is the fourth game in the Mario & Sonic franchise. Previously, the plumber and rodent competed in Beijing, London, and Vancouver.
