Mario & Sonic Head To Tokyo For The 2020 Games @sonic_hedgehog @SEGA


Bowser rides a horse and Dr. Eggman jumps off the high dive. Luigi and Tails go on a quest to free Mario & Sonic from the Tokyo '64 video game console, where they've been trapped as retro 8-bit and 16-bit versions of themselves.

Where else could that happen? Nowhere. And just in time for the holidays, you can experience these fun, entertaining adventures for yourselves with family and friends. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is ready for you to join the party starting today, only on Nintendo Switch™!

Get everyone together and go for the gold with Mario & Sonic!

Here are three quirky ideas to create your own fun mem(e)ories this holiday season:
  1. Take a Leap of Fun: Jump off the high board, tap some buttons, and nail a splash-free execution in the 10m Platform Diving event with retro-style gameplay. Peach always keeps her crown on too, somehow.
  2. Paddle, Paddle Mario: In all his 2D, sprite-filled glory, show off Mario's strong arms as he paddles his way to victory in Kayak!
  3. Luigi's On Vacation from Chasing Ghosts: The plumber in green needs a break from all his frightening adventures - for some sharp turns and carving waves in Surfing!

The 411: 
I was hesitant to get this one since it's been so long since we played the last ones on the Wii.  My kids are older and I didn't think we would enjoy it anymore but when I showed my kids that we got this, their eyes lit up. 

Once we started playing everyone was having a great time.  Even my husband, who does not play a lot of video games was getting a kick out of this. There were even some really cool games that looked like an 80's Nintendo game and he loved that!


Honestly, I was really surprised at how much fun we had playing this game! When they were younger, playing games with them was quality family time. I missed it and they have been hanging with us playing instead of locked up in their rooms. It might be short lived because it is new but I will take it!
