Itz duh bat!
Sega may have got off to false start with its upcoming sports compendium Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. A recent update to the publisher’s TGS 2019 website appears to have revealed the entire launch roster for the track & field title (as spotted by GameXplain.)
A small banner, containing logos that pertain to different characters in the – Mario & Sonic universe – can be enlarged, revealing 32 different characters, currently getting into gear for events such as running, swimming, long jump, karate, surfing and volleyball, among others.
The full list of characters is as follows: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Bowser, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, “Eggman”, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Bowser Jr., Shadow, Silver, Metal Sonic, Blaze, Vektor, Jet, Zavok, Zazz, “Eggman” Nega, Espio, Rouge, Diddy Kong, Toadette, Larry Koopa, Ludwig von Koopa, Rosalina and finally Wendy O. Koopa. The latter 12 characters listed have yet to be revealed in an official capacity by Sega.
Honestly, that’s a pretty good roster, I especially like the choice of female stars, and I can see myself running Wendy O. whenever possible. Of course, none of this has been officially confirmed, but it’s looking quite legit. See anyone you like?
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 launches on Nintendo Switch in November, with an arcade release to follow in selected territories in 2020.
