Sonic Colors: Ultimate is an upgrade over the Wii original in a few different ways. Aside from sprucing up the visuals, new content will be included like the Rival Rush mode, customization, and Jade Ghost Wisp.

When it comes to the Switch version, it does appear that there will be one drawback. Whereas Sonic Colors: Ultimate will run at 60 frames per second on most platforms, it’s looking like the action will be 30 FPS on Nintendo’s console. This seems to be the case after an updated version of the most recent trailer was published specifically for Switch at 30 FPS. Additionally, a part from the original video was removed about the game now running at 60 FPS.

Some people eat, sleep and breathe sports. I’m not one of those people, but even I can appreciate the Olympics and what they represent – the coming together of cultures, the excitement of seeing the best athletes in the world compete against each other, and of course, all of the associated spectacle. I decidedly do not enjoy, however, the decidedly average minigame collections that typically get churned out every few years to tie in with the event. That is why I’m thrilled to report that not only is Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Videogame an excellent Olympics game, but it is also one of the best pick-up-and-play sports games I’ve experienced in a long time.
