Mario and Sonic Go For Gold at the London Olympics 2012 (TRAILER)
It’s got all the elements you’d expect — the swelling music, Big Ben, the houses of Parliament. Sega and Nintendo stars taking the virtual stage inside a virtual stadium, taking place in the virtual opening ceremonies of 2012′s very real London Summer Games.
Try to spot all the character cameos and their various sports. Things start pretty normal — there’s Princess Peach doing synchronized swimming! Luigi tearing up the equestrian events! Knuckles dribbling past defenders on the soccer field! Then they get crazy and futuristic. I’m pretty sure relay races involving swinging from levitating laser bars aren’t on the London 2012 docket, but who knows — seems like practically anything can become an Olympic sport in this day and age.
