Sega Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game release date June 22, 2021 Nintendo Switch playstation 4 xbox one steam pc stadia

Sega has announced Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Stadia with a release date of June 22, 2021. You may be thinking, “Wait, this game has no plumbers or hedgehogs? What’s even the point then?” And I completely agree with that sentiment, especially since Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 was apparently pretty awesome. Nevertheless, this title will be bringing 18 authentic competitive events to consoles next month, available to play multiplayer locally and online for upward of eight players. The following games are included:

  • 100m
  • 4x100m Relay
  • 110m Hurdles
  • Hammer Throw
  • Long Jump
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Beach Volleyball
  • BMX (Cycling)
  • Boxing
  • Judo
  • Rugby Sevens
  • Football (Soccer)
  • 100m Freestyle (Swimming)
  • 200m Individual Medley (Swimming)
  • Sport Climbing
  • Table Tennis
  • Tennis

“The Olympic Games are a unifying symbol of sportsmanship and competition for athletes and fans throughout the world,” said Ian Curran, President & COO at Sega of America. “Tokyo 2020 channels that positive spirit into a fun, arcade-style experience for friends and family to play together as we all look forward to the start of the Olympic Games this summer.”

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game will additionally include an Avatar Creator with “More than 50 different colorful wardrobe options are available to choose from, from traditional country kits to more imaginative outfits like pirate and astronaut costumes.” The game will retail for $39.99 and seems geared at people who truly love the Olympics, so let us know if you’re hip to what Sega is putting down. It’ll certainly be more hygienic than actually attending the games.

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game has a June release date, but the real-life event is expected to begin in July.
