Listen to this article

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Tokyo Games 2020 release date is just around the corner and The Koalition spoke to Jacob Nahin, Senior Communications Manager at Sega of America, Inc about everything coming to the game and more.

Fans of the series will be happy to know this iteration will feature three new “Dream Events” including “Dream Shooting” , “Dream Karate” and “Dream Racing.”


Dream Shooting: Aim and take fire at a range of targets placed all around a traditional Japanese manor in this competitive score-based event! At different intervals during the match, flying kites will appear, which players can target for bonus points.
Dream Karate: Fight to light up the most blank spaces featured on the floor to expand your territory, combining the lightning-fast action of Karate with free-for-all gameplay! Every space where an enemy falls by your hand will light up. The player or team that lights up the most spaces at the end of the round is the victor. It’s chaos, fun-filled chaos!
Dream Racing: Hop on a hoverboard and zoom through a downhill course filled with question-mark power-ups and challenging obstacles, performing sweet tricks to earn a speed boost and gain the lead. The first one to the bottom wins!

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Tokyo Games 2020 will also offer a retro side with a selection of 2D “Classic Events” which take place in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

It will be released in the Americas on November 5th and Europe on November 8th.
