Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is a game for the Nintendo Wii, developed by Sega and produced by Nintendo. It is an official game for the Beijing 2008 Olympics, and it features venues similar to real ones in Beijing.

The game is a collection of Olympic sports events at which characters from the Mario series and characters from the Sonic series compete, relying heavily on the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote. It is the first game on any console where both Mario and Sonic characters have been playable.

The game was released for the Wii and the Nintendo DS, and both include online play over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

There are two sequels for this game, one to honor the olympic winter game, and the other to honor the 2012 olympic games.
