Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is the follow-up to Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. This is the second collaboration with Nintendo and Sega under license from the International Olympic Committee (to correspond with the Vancouver Winter Olympics, scheduled for 2010). The game itself features the hosting cities of the games, Vancouver and Whistler. Like their previous installment, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games was developed and released for both the Wii and DS in October 2009. The game features exclusive modes that are exclusively on the Wii and DS versions. The Wii version features a Festival mode while the DS version features Adventure Tour, a single player with quests and bosses from both universes. The Wii version can also utilize the Wii balance board for single player play.

Additionally, like last time, Sega handles the publishing/marketing duties for territories outside of Japan, while Nintendo handles publishing/marketing duties for Japan itself.
