During last month’s Sega Fes, the Japanese publisher and developer confirmed that it would be working on three official Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games tie-ins. Two of those will be Mario & Sonic crossing over once more, one for Switch and the other for mobile, while the third is a slightly more serious simulation of the sporting event for multiple platforms.

If you’re eager to run the 500 meters without a giant talking hedgehog for competition, then you’ll be happy to hear that it’ll be launching in Japan for Switch and PS4 on July 24th, 2019, giving players a year exactly to brush up before the real games begin on July 24th, 2020. Check out the trailer:
 

 
Hopefully the game will launch across the rest of the world around the same time!

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
