Mario Sports Mix will arrive on Wii from 27 January 2011, with four sports for the whole family to enjoy! Players can jump into games of hockey, basketball, volleyball or dodgeball, all with that special Mario twist. Mario Sports Mix will be playable during the hours of the tournament, giving fans the chance to enjoy the game before its release.
