Talk:Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Arcade Edition
Missing stock artwork for Team Sonic
The reason why I didn't bother adding the images for Team Sonic is that we're missing stock artwork for the characters, to the point that even Sonic's artwork is missing. The artwork used for Team Mario is based on the popup cards in this page, so it would be a good idea doing the same for Team Sonic, but extracting the artwork from the background of the card might be a little difficult in some cases. What is the best way to proceed here, in your opinion?--Mister Wu (talk) 20:22, 30 July 2016 (EDT)
- We should probably upload the generic stock artwork (it doesn't have to be from the Mario & Sonic games, just as long as artwork is used in those games) and tie them to the games the stock artwork appeared in. It makes no sense otherwise to leave them out. KaBoom! 20:15, 31 July 2016 (EDT)
- Due to time concern, at the moment I just extracted the artwork from the characters' cards on the site. Tracking down the source of these images will require some time, probably, even though it might still make sense from a quality point of view (borders unaffected by background and possibly higher resolution).--Mister Wu (talk) 21:23, 2 August 2016 (EDT)
Aime Card Functionality
On the Japanese website, if you click the first button besides HOME on the top of the page and scroll to the bottom, you can see what happens if you use an Aime Card. It looks like you unlock Bowser Jr., Donkey Kong, Metal Sonic and Vector and you can save medals you've won to it. But, they also show Nabbit, Omega, Rouge and Toad among the Aime Card functionality. I can't translate Japanese efficiently, but what does it do. If anyone can figure it out, let me know. I would also appreciate it if you made a page edit explaining what it does.
- I was doubtful whether to add this or not, but thanks for the tip - I'll now add the information about this! The Aime card effectively allows progress to be saved and to unlock characters (that are already unlocked in the international version). Apparently, the stars you get in the ranking and the medals are saved (this is what can be seen in footage of the Japanese version). The center part, however, is intriguing: it says that you will be able to have bonus events with challengers in some cabinets. So far, however, the site only reports the 4x100m relay event with the Toads, so it's likely that 3 events will be added in the future featuring Nabbit, Rouge and E-123 Omega, unless those 3 characters are simply challenged in standard events. No footage of these 3 characters can be seen, so the first hypothesis is more likely; regardless of this I'll add them to the challengers since they are effectively confirmed by an official source.--Mister Wu (talk) 16:55, 3 August 2016 (EDT)
