Nintendo and SEGA have revealed three new Dream Events in Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 on Nintendo Switch.
These promise to take you “beyond the limits of reality and into the realm of imagination” in intense and fast-paced experiences that have looked to “add an all-new layer of party fun.”
In this score-based event, the goal is to aim and take fire at a range of targets placed all around a traditional Japanese manor. At different intervals during the match, flying kites will appear, which players can target for bonus points.
Combining the lightning-fast action of Karate with free-for-all gameplay, players fight to light up the most blank spaces featured on the floor to expand their territory. Every space where an enemy falls by their 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 fun-filled chaos.
Players 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 reach the bottom wins.
In Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, you will have the chance to play as Mario, Sonic, Yoshi, Amy Rose, Luigi, Dr. Eggman, and many more, as you go for gold in action-packed sports games.
There are four new events that have been introduced in Skateboarding, Karate, Surfing, and Sport Climbing.
And, the game supports both button play and motion controls in multiplayer game modes – whether that be with up to four players locally, or up to eight online.
Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch in North America on November 5th, and in Europe on November 8th.
