Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – Preview

Mario & Sonic have been on a number of Olympic adventures over the years. What once was a seemingly bloodthirsty rivalry has turned into a sporting duel between both icons and their friends in various sporting events.

This Article will not be a comprehensive review, as we will be covering the game in it’s entirety in a full review at the launch of the game.

With the several hours I have had so far with the game, I can communicate to you that this game will be fantastic for parties and get-togethers at home or on the go.


In the game you will be playing as your favorite from the Mario and Sonic games and battling it out in a series of Olympic games, and some more stylized mini games to spice up the fun. For example, in one event you will be taking your characters through a skateboard heat trying for a high score, while another event will take you on a thrill-ride on a larger than life coarse.

Here is a full list of all the 3-D mini-games:

· 100m

· 110m Hurdles

· 4 x 100m Relay

There is also a selection of 2-D events as well! This 2-D mode will be found in the game’s story mode, and multiplayer mode, and is one of the neatest gimmicks the game brings.


2-D games include:

· 100m

· 10m Platform (Diving)

· 400m Hurdles

The Story is a really fun unique take as well, While I can’t share full details at this time, just know that the story mode is there, in case you want to play the game and all it’s mini-games solo.

Overall, I am having loads of fun so far with Mario & Sonic and friends, and can’t wait to share more!
