Mario or Sonic, Nintendo or Sega, it’s a question anyone who grew up in the 90’s will remember. Eventually the two put their differences aside and now compete to prove which is better over Olympic events.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 adds a new mode that I absolutely love as the cast is transformed into 2D sprites with Mario and friends turning into 8-bit versions of themselves from the original Super Mario Bros while Sonic and friends become 16-bit versions of themselves.

This new mode will only be available in 10 different events including: 100m, 10m Platform (Diving), 400m Hurdles, Gymnastics – Vault, Judo, Kayak Single (K-1), 1000m, Long Jump, Marathon, Shooting – Trap and Volleyball but to be honest I’d play the entire game in 2D mode given the chance.

Look at Eggman go!
