    I didn't see this posted anywhere.

    The North American eShop was updated today with a Mario and Sonic at the 2012 London Olympic Games demo.

    Sorry if I don't follow the standard news format!

    I'm not sure if I should be posting this as anything interesting, seeing as it's not like it's the first demo :S

    I think the graphics look pretty nice. Sonic's model looks a lot nicer than in Generations.

    I've heard it was less stylus-heavy as the DS Winter. Any feedback ?

    In terms of gameplay, it's a pretty good use of the 3DS mechanics. They used everything except for the camera and the mic. It was the first time I actually got a chance to use the 3DS accelerometer, and it was pretty cool.

    I can't really compare to the DS Olympic game seeing as I never played it, but there was only one touch-based game in the demo.

    Seems nice, as almost every game used the stylus on the DS Winter.

    The graphics where quite better than i expected,

    The demo lasts for 6-8 minutes and there's 5 rounds with 4 different teams

    Graphics are really nice and the it uses the 3DS capabylities all right i guess. Too bad the 3D isn't really all that great

    Me too xD It requires precision (which I lack) so just move that circle pad around.

    Btw, my only complaint with the demo is that you cant change the team characters before the games.

    After an awesome demo last week, little disappointed in this weeks. Played everything twice, I think that will be enough. And I too suck at soccer, lol
