Free Sonic Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Game Coming To Mobile


With less than 12 months until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Sega has today revealed that there will be a free Sonic at the Olympic Games mobile app for Android and iOS, launching shortly before the official Olympics opening ceremony.

The app will include an extensive range of characters from the Sonic franchise, and is shaping up to be quite the competitive mobile game with leaderboards for not just friends but also for nations. There will be plenty of traditional Olympic Games events to participate in as well as new events added to the Tokyo 2020 Games. Also shown in the trailer are some fun mini-games that you would only see in the Sonic universe.

While the app currently does not include any characters from the Mario franchise, we wouldn’t be surprised if they make their way in to the game during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics as special unlockables.

The 2020 Summer Olympic Games will commence on Friday, 24 July and conclude on Sunday, 9 August.

Rocket Chainsaw has been following the official Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 game development closely, recently covering the addition of some nostalgic 2D events which you can read more about here. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will launch on November 5th, 2019 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
