WORLDS COLLIDE Pick from 20 characters from the Super Mario and Sonic series and pit them against each other in an assortment of Olympic events. The Mushroom Kingdom’s energetic hero and everyone’s favourite superstar. He stands up to Bowser with his jumping skills and all-around athletic ability. The world’s fastest hedgehog. He can be impulsive and impatient, but he is driven by kindness and a strong sense of justice. Mario’s younger twin brother. He’s a little timid (especially around ghosts) but is kind and just as capable as his brother. A kind, twin-tailed fox kit. He can spin his tails to fly through the air, and his engineering talent helps Sonic on his adventures. The princess of the Mushroom Kingdom. She has a close bond with Mario and is unfailingly kind. A powerful echidna who lives on Angel Island as the lone guardian of the Master Emerald. The princess of Sarasaland. She is cheerful, active, and always full of energy. A hedgehog who is a real go-getter and lights up the room when she’s around. She’s quite strong-minded, and won’t hesitate at taking on evil with her trusty hammer. The Koopa King's strength, fire breath, and large army of Goombas, Koopa Troopas and more make him a constant threat to world peace. A self-proclaimed evil scientist and mechanical genius with an IQ of 300. He never gives up on his plans to take over the world. There’s never a dull moment with Wario, a loud, brash fellow who says he’s Mario’s greatest rival. He loves garlic and money. A black hedgehog known as the ultimate life form. Created with an immortal body, he wields Chaos Emeralds to warp space and time. Wario’s pal who thinks he’s Luigi’s rival. His gangly arms and legs make him a fierce competitor in all manner of sports. A hedgehog from a devastated future. Always looking ahead and possessing a strong sense of justice, he can wield powerful psychokinesis. Mario’s kind, chill ally from Yoshi’s Island. Yoshi’s long tongue lets them gobble up fruit and foe alike and turn them into eggs. A high-performance robot built by Dr. Eggman to mimic Sonic. He has Sonic's speed and power, and serves as Eggman's obedient henchman. King of the jungle and superstar of the Kong Family. He's so strong, it isn't funny. He'd do anything for a banana or ten. A princess from another world who uses the Sol Emeralds she protects. Cool-headed and hard on herself, she's still a little shy. The Koopa King's little boy. He might be small, but he's got all of Papa's strength and selfishness. Wears a mask with a big mouth on it. The head of the Chaotix Detective Agency. He has a sharp mind and a sharp tongue, but is also an optimist with a compassionate heart.

Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Reviews

View All (72 total)

This latest entry in the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series sports the best collection yet of minigames and events, but is hampered by a tedious story mode and overall poor execution.

Read full review

A serviceable mini-game compilation with some moderately interesting highlights, held back by peculiar design decisions and little replay value.

This is the sort of thing that might keep smaller children occupied for a time, but buffet rules apply: The food doesn’t taste better just because there’s a lot of it. And that’s maybe the best thing I can say about Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: There is certainly a lot of it.
