SEGA's announced that Vancouver 2010: The Official Video Game of the Winter Olympic Games will be released on 15th January.

This will be SEGA's realistic take on the Olympic licence following the release of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games earlier this year.

The aim of Vancouver 2010 is to recreate as believably as possible the real-life events of the icy sporting summit, where athletes hurl themselves down slippery slides, launch themselves into the air and generally do all manner of dangerous and ill-advised activities. It's much safer to simulate on telly at home.

We've just posted a Vancouver 2010 video and gallery for you to look at.

Vancouver 2010, like Beijing 2008, will be made by developer Eurocom. Check out our Beijing 2008 review for an idea of what to expect.
