Following the news, earlier this week that SEGA has signed an exclusive deal to publish games based on the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, it's now been confirmed that one of the those titles will be Mario & Sonic At the Winter Olympics.

Though SEGA hasn't announced it officially the 2010 Olympics tie-in was revealed by Winter Olympics’ director of licensing Dennis Kim, who told The Province that SEGA is hoping to build on the success of Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games, which sold approximately 2 million copies in the UK last year.

"They want to get a real sense of accuracy, particularly with the landscape and the venues and the look of the Games," Kim said,

An official SEGA announcement is expected later this week.
