High stats in Speed, Power, Skill, and Stamina are super helpful when it comes to winning big in Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Here are five tips to get fit for competition!


ESRB Rating: Everyone 10+ with Mild Cartoon Violence 

Competition is fierce on the Road to Rio. But you can try to give your Mii character an edge with daily training, stat-boosting outfits and gear, and a little help from amiibo figures!*


Daily training


Choose a gym (Mario or Sonic) and get to work training. Daily training helps level up your Mii!


Play to your strengths 


Are you super skilled at certain Training Events? Awesome! You can replay those events to earn points and level up your Mii.


Not all events are equal


Some Training Events can earn you lots of points, while others might offer easier gameplay. You might want to pick and choose your events carefully to get the most out of your training.


Gear up your Mii


You can get stat-increasing outfits and gear at Yoshi’s Exchange. Yoshi won’t take credit cards, but he will accept melons and apples!


Power up with amiibo


Once you complete a route, tap either a Mario amiibo or a Sonic amiibo (depending on the route you chose) to power up your suit. You’ll get a huge stat boost! The effects only last for 24 hours, but you can do a lot in a day.
