The various Mario & Sonic games have generalloffered two kinds of events: those that are based on actual sports from the actual Olympics, and those that are a bit too “exotic” (if not downright impossible in real life). The latter are called Dream Events, and of course, they are back in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. In fact, they’re the very Events showcased in the latest trailer for the game!
Here’s the latest trailer for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, introducing the Dream Events:
Three Dream Events are introduced:
- Dream Shooting: Aim and take fire at a range of targets placed all around a traditional Japanese manor in this competitive score-based event! At different intervals during the match, flying kites will appear, which players can target for bonus points.
- Dream Karate: Fight to light up the most blank spaces featured on the floor to expand your territory, combining the lightning-fast action of Karate with free-for-all gameplay! Every space where an enemy falls by your 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 chaos, fun-filled chaos!
- Dream Racing: 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 the bottom wins!
Finally, here’s some more screenshots for the game:
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (Switch) comes out on November 1st in Japan, November 5th in North America, and November 8th in Europe.
