Nintendo has confirmed that Mario & Sonic and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is heading west.

While a specific release date wasn’t specified, we know the game is coming in August, to both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The game was previously announced in their Japanese Nintendo Direct, yesterday.

Just like the real-life Rio 2016 Olympic Games (which happen in August of next year), you can expect to partake in lots of events, like golf, soccer, rugby, and more.
