Nintendo is known for developing sports games that stand out, offering an experience accessible to all, family and fun. Rare are those who have never played one of these games, including Wii Sport, which is one of the best selling games in the world, even if we admit that these figures were somewhat boosted by the fact that the game was provided with the console then it was sold in the West.

We only have a few more days to wait before the release of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and the good news is that a free demo is available right now on the Nintendo Eshop. This new game of the series offers a host of disciplines, and even the five new sports we will see for the first time at the 2020 Olympic Games: Baseball and softball, karate, skateboarding, surfing, and climbing. Even though the demo does not allow you to try them all, you can still have a taste of surfing, karate, badminton, archery and 110m hurdles. But that’s not all, because the game also offers classic mini-games in 2D as a tribute to the Tokyo Olympic Games of 1964. In this category, the demo lets you try the long jump and the 10m platform diving 10m.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 makes good use, like Arms, or Mario Tennis Aces, of the Joy-cons of Nintendo’s console to offer a fun and varied experience. The different events offer several modes of play: with two separate joy-cons, with only one, or using only the buttons of the joysticks. This feature is rather welcome because not everyone is necessarily a fan of motion gaming. On the other hand, for the classic part in 2D, it seems that only the last control mode is available.
