Nintendo is joining up with the United States Olympic Committee to kick off its nationwide “Road to Sochi Tour” in Times Square on Oct. 29 with a 100 Day Countdown event, celebrating 100 days until the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The event will take up three blocks in New York’s Times Square and will include athlete demonstrations on a ski and snowboard ramp, as well as an ice rink for curling, figure skating, speedskating and ice hockey.
Nintendo will also be there with hands-on demos for its new game, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games™, which launches for Wii U on Nov. 15.
