Nintendo is a publishing company that publishes many series, including the Super Mario series, The Legend of Zelda series, the Kirby series, and the Metroid series and manufactures consoles such as the GameCube, Wii, Wii U, Nintendo DS, and the Nintendo 3DS. Their mascot is none other than Sonic's rival, Mario.

Console Wars

Nintendo and Sega's rivalry ignited with the fourth console war, where the Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES for short) was competing against the Sega Master System. Nintendo and Sega's rivalry expanded to four different wars.

Nintendo and Sega were certainly not alone. During these wars, there were other systems. These include:

Post-Console wars

Final War

During the sixth generation, the Dreamcast held up against the GameCube, but it did so poorly against the PS2 and never competed against the Xbox. The Dreamcast was eventually discontinued.

Third-Party Company

Sega's next move was announcing that they would not be making consoles anymore, and become a third-party company. Since then, Sega has worked with Nintendo to create many Sonic games on Nintendo systems, including Sonic Advance for the Game Boy Advance and Sonic and the Secret Rings for the Wii.


Sega and Nintendo started working to create crossover games between their mascots, Mario and Sonic. The first game was Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for the Wii which featured Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Bowser, Wario, Waluigi, and Yoshi for Team Mario, and Sonic, Dr. Eggman, Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Shadow and Blaze for Team Sonic. The popular release caused the recent demand for Sonic to be in Super Smash Bros. Brawl to grow, and later on, he was confirmed to be in SSBB, which was also for the Wii. One year later, Sega released Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games which, again, was for the Wii, which included all the previous characters, with the addition of two new characters for each team: Bowser Jr. and Donkey Kong for Team Mario, and Metal Sonic, and Silver for Team Sonic. Then in 2011, Sega and Nintendo released Mario and Sonic at the 2012 London Olympic games which once again, was for the Wii and 3DS and had the same characters as Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter games.


Along with Nintendo helping Sega to fund the upcoming Bayonetta 2 for Wii U, Satoru Iwata announced on the second show of Nintendo Direct in 2013 that Nintendo and Sega will be collaborating together to make three Nintendo console exclusive Sonic titles for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. One title was confirmed to be Sonic Lost World and the other was the fourth-installment of the Mario and Sonic cross-over, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The final confirmed Nintendo exclusive title is Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for the Wii U and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for the Nintendo 3DS. Sonic was also confirmed for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. However, Smash Bros. is not part of the three-game deal.
