The video gaming industry is near and dear to many Vancouverites hearts (Vancity Allie comes too mind and we’re sure many others as well). We know that most of you play them, heck UD has a 46″ LCD set up in his office complete with Rock Band 2 for XBOX 360. Lucky mother…anyways, so we were perusing through videogamesblogger and what did we see. A new rumoured Mario & Sonics at the Winter Olympics. Of course that means the duo is headed to Vancouver!

Here is an excerpt from videogamesblogger.com:

Spanish gaming magazine Nintendo Accion has hinted at Mario & Sonic 2 being in development at Sega, and coming to Nintendo Wii, by showing silhouettes of the two former-rivals-now-buddies with accompanying text suggesting a second sports party game will be revealed exclusively in their next issue.To quote the text: “Who are these two and why do they come to see each other? Find out all the details on the mystery game in the next magazine. But before that, here are some clues: games, Olympics, it’s cold, it’s winter…” Which is clearly a hint at a Winter Olympics sequel to Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii, DS) which has sold over 5 million copies worldwide!

If the rumour is true Vancouver will be immortalized in the video game realm. We’ll update you as soon as wii here more.
