It's the Olympics, so you can count on the plumber and hedgehog and their friends doing other things, too!

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch this November, SEGA of America announced today, and will feature favorite characters from the Sonic and Mario franchises, along with four new events.

According to a press release, the new events are surfing, skateboarding, karate and sport climbing. Those join returning favorites: gymnastics, swimming, 110m hurdles, football, equestrian events and archery.

The roster of available characters includes Mario, Sonic, Luigi, Knuckles, Peach, Amy, Dr. Eggman, Yoshi and Tails, with additional characters on the way but being saved for later announcements. Here's hoping for an appearance by Big the Cat and Wario. They seem like they would make nice additions.

Players will be able to use the Joy-Con controllers for multiple (but not all) events, and both split-screen and online play are offered. The variety of ways to play should help the game to entertain gamers in a variety of circumstances.

Check out the reveal trailer embedded above if you would like your first look at the game in action, or head over to the official Mario & Sonic at the Olympics site for official news and updates.
