Using 2D sprites of modern notorious characters makes for entertaining marketing material. However, the developers of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 decided to take it a step further. Making 2D sprite events for the characters in the game. They’ll be 10 2D events that are as follow: 100m 10m Platform (Diving) 400m Hurdles Gymnastics – Vault Judo Kayak Single (K-1) 1000m Long Jump Marathon Shooting – Trap Volleyball This is a great idea and judging from the comments, fans are very interested in this mode. Offering the chance to Sonic and Mario to relive their rivalry with their 2D forms. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch on November 5 in the United States and November 8 in Europe.
