Kotaku interviewed Sega of America president Simon Jeffery recently and he seemed excited at the sales of the first Mario and Sonic crossover title, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. It has sold over 10 million copies worldwide and as Jeffery stated, the upcoming Beijing 2008 Olympics should boost sales substantially. As to whether there will be any more Sonic games? Jeffery says, "We would be delighted to do another game with Mario and Sonic".
