Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

Two more games debuted in the UK last week: Just Dance 2020 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. There are interesting things to say about both.

As for Just Dance 2020, it debuted on the charts at #15. What’s noteworthy is the platform breakdown. Switch led the way with 55 percent of all Just Dance 2020 sales. Next up was Wii at 21 percent, followed by the PlayStation 4 at 14 percent and Xbox One at 10 percent. That means Just Dance 2020 sold more on Wii than Sony and Microsoft’s consoles.

As for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, it came in at #8. The title is the series’ most successful entry since Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, a Wii title from 2011.

It is often said that there are but two certainties in life, being death and taxes. I propose we add a third billing to that list: party games on Nintendo consoles. There isn’t a single saggy financial quarter that can’t be pumped up significantly by the presence of a mini-game collection featuring Mario and company, and this Christmas, SEGA (in partnership with Nintendo) have answered the call of duty by sending Mario, Sonic, and both of their respective entourages to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. The initial novelty and shock value of an official game featuring both Nintendo and SEGA’s mascots may be somewhat dulled since the franchise’s first outing on Wii in 2007, but you could say that this new entry is the series’ most fitting one: two monolithic Japanese companies paying homage to one equally gargantuan Japanese event.

SEGA has gone live with the first Japanese commercial for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. We have it below.

SEGA is letting fans try out Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 prior to release. Over on the Japanese Switch eShop, a demo has been released. It can be accessed from any Switch system worldwide as long as you create a Japanese Nintendo Account.

We would expect the demo to be made available in other regions at a later date. However, if you’d like to download it immediately, the Japanese eShop is your current option.
