Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is a game for the 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 five sequels made for this game, one to honor the 2010 Winter Olympics, one to honor the 2012 Olympic games, one to honor the 2014 Winter Olympics one to honor the 2016 Summer Olympics, and one to honor the 2020 Summer Olympics.
