Concept and Ideas

While there is no plans for a DS version, news has spread that new and old events return, featuring British football (soccer), horseback racing and rumours of hockey being playable. The dream events are said to return, also. No other additional details to this point have been announced. If you look at a Mario picture of him in this game, you can see him with a javelin spear, indicating that the javelin throw event is going to return.
