On your marks…
Sega has released a short new trailer for its colourful sports title Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, headed to Nintendo Switch in November.
Titled “All The Fun”, the short teaser offers a look at some of the events and modes available to the titular duo and their pals. We get to see sports such as karate, surfing, hover-boarding, kayaking, boxing and others. We also get a glimpse of the game’s story mode, as well as its cool retro mode, which features classic sprites from old-school Sega and Nintendo titles.
The ad has the pace and feel of a television commercial, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you see this clip on your idiot box sometime soon. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 definitely feels like the kind of game that Sega would market to the mainstream, given the success of previous titles in the series.
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 launches on Nintendo Switch November 5.
