Two years ago, Sega inched Mario and Sonic's rivalry from Tom and Jerry levels of animosity to Tom-and-Jerry-with-bowties levels of friendly competition in Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games. The title let gamers determine who would prevail in a round of Summer Olympics events like archery, fencing, and high jumping.

And we demand it now-a full five months before the non-videogame Winter Olympics kick off in Vancouver. In short: Olympic fever dictates Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Winter Games."
