Saw that last night but forgot to tell. Kind of strange it comes out 4 months before the Olympics start, but okay.

I'm saddened that nintendo is going ahead with this game in the face of the controversial anti-gay propaganda that is sweeping the country. Bad form Nintendo! :(

Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games =/= the actual 2014 Winter Olympics. The game will have been in development long before Russia's abhorrent anti-gay agenda became as evident as it is now, and in no way is Nintendo (or SEGA) supporting that agenda by releasing the game. It's a game that is going to be enjoyed by a whole host of people, including younger children, and it doesn't need to be affected by political difficulties.

Now, the actual Winter Olympics, you can protest Russia's anti-gay agenda all you like. I certainly will be. But as far as the game's concerned, it's just a game. That's all.

Weird how silent Sega have been on this game, it got the announcement trailer and that was pretty much it. :?

I guess they'll be no new playable characters in this game either...
