Mario, Sonic and friends are going to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. The new game, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 hits shelves and is available for digital download on the Nintendo Switch. This new game is action packed with 30 events like Archery, Judo, Fencing, Skateboarding, Gymnastics and More.
What makes this game so fun and unique is that 20 of the modern 2020 Olympic events are 3D but you can also take part in a story mode that traps Mario and Sonic in a retro video game console at the 1969 Tokyo Olympics and features 10 retro-style 2D games. Luigi and Tails must team up to save their pals trapped in the video game.
This is a great multiplayer game as it allows up to 4 players and players can configure their controllers in a number of different ways. Up to 8 players can play together online (Nintendo Switch Online Membership required). You can choose from your favorite Mario and Sonic characters like Luigi, Tails, Yoshi, Amy Rose, Waluigi and more.
Play mini games set in popular Tokyo landmarks, like climb the Tokyo Tower, or see if Sonic can out-race a bullet train. You’ll also learn fun trivia (Did you know the new stadium roof is made of material collected from each prefecture of Japan?), unlock hidden characters, and explore the different venues of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and 1964!
We really like this game because of multiplayer option and controller setting, this helps when playing with several young children. They can all play together but we can make adjustments that suit their different styles of playing. The kids really enjoyed the retro 2D games and all the mini games. It’s also nice that all of the events are available to play right away but special guest characters may be unlocked throughout the game play.
