Mario and Sonic Rio 2016 has recently released on Nintendo Wii U and I thought it would be a good idea to share with everyone which characters you are able to play with in the game. The character list is evenly split between Mario and Sonic characters, making it equally as difficult to choose a character from a respective series. To start the game, you instantly have access to 10 characters from each series. After you beat certain events you will get access to “Guests” who are only playable in the events that you unlock them. For example, you unlock ‘Zazz’ during a Table Tennis Tournament and you can only use him in that event. This is an interesting feature that Nintendo added to the game. I am not sure why they do not let you use all of the characters in all of the events, oh well.
