    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (マリオ&ソニック AT 東京2020オリンピック) is the sixth entry in the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series, based on the real-life 2020 Summer Olympics held in Tokyo, Japan. The game was announced at SEGA Fes 2019 on March 30, 2019[5], and released on the Nintendo Switch on November 1st, 2019, followed by an arcade version in 2020.

    This is the first time Nintendo didn't publish the game in Japan, unlike the other entries of the series.


    Gameplay in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is largely the same as its predecessors in that the player participates in mini-games based on various Olympic events. The events in the game can be played using either motion controls much like the Wii entries, or by using traditional button controls.

    Also featured in the game are 2D events based on the 1964 Summer Olympics, presented in a style similar to older sports games with only traditional button controls being used and only eight playable characters. Characters from the Sonic the Hedgehog series appear in their 16-bit form from the Mega Drive titles, while characters from the Super Mario series appear in their 8-bit form from Super Mario Bros.

    The game also features a Story Mode similar to the handheld versions of previous entries. In this mode, Mario, Sonic, Toad, Bowser and Dr. Eggman are sucked into a retro video game system containing a game based off the Tokyo 1964 Olympic Games, and Luigi and Tails must work together to get them out.


    As with the previous entry, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 features the 20 regular characters available for all events who have appeared in past entries, plus 12 guest characters who are exclusive to certain events. For the first time in the series, Miis are not featured in any capacity.

    Characters do not have specific stats in this game; instead, they are reported in-game to have event-specific advantages. All-Around characters do not have specific advantages, and are simply listed as "All-Around" in all events. The advantages for each event are as follows:
