You can go head-to-head with both Mario and Sonic in "Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games." Zika not included.

#SonicFTW

Sega's ‘Sonic' franchise has sold over 335 million units since 1991, turning the hedgehog with attitude into a household name.

#MarioFTW

But Nintendo's 'Mario' franchise has sold over 400 million units! 🤑

#SonicFTW

Sonic fans say the beloved mascot is more of a "freedom fighter" than Mario, who enables a "damsel in distress" storyline.

#SonicFTW

Fans also think 'Sonic' games tend to be fresher and more inventive than Nintendo's 'Mario' franchise.

#MarioFTW

But how can you hate on a mascot who has mastered literally every video game genre out there? RPGs, kart racing, tennis, party games, etc. If it exists, there's a 'Mario' game and it's probably a classic! 🕹
