Are you looking for a gift to give gamers on your wish list? 


This gaming gift on Nintendo Switch is great for all ages; that is fun for the whole family to come together for a party.


Mario and Sonic are back with another Olympic series game, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 on Nintendo Switch. This action-packed sporting event game is right on time because the 2020 Olympic Summer Games will be scheduled to take place from July 24th to August 9th, 2020 in Tokyo, Japan.




My daughters got a chance to play Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 over the weekend, and they thought the game was a lot of fun and more entertaining than Mario Party. The Mario & Sonic Olympic Games is more sports-themed than Mario Party as well.

When we first turned on the game, we were blown away by the colorful graphics and all the dozens of sports games to choose from. And, players can choose from an incredible cast of characters that includes Mario, Luigi, Sonic, Tails, Yoshi, Amy Rose, Waluigi, Dr. Eggman, and many more!


There is a story mode that narrates about the Tokyo Olympic games when it happened in Tokyo in 1964, pulling Mario and Sonic back in time, giving players that retro game feels. During the story mode, there are trivia questions, and mini-games players can play alongside archnemesis Bowser and Dr. Eggman.

With the motion controls, it makes the game more interactive, making you feel that you are apart of the game. You can play the game your way by motion and button controls, single and dual Joy-Con, single-player and multiplayer, local split-screen, and online!

Even I got in on the fun too, but I'm not that good when it comes to the motion controls, I'm all about those classic handheld controls. Still, it's delightful being able to play your favorite country and go for the gold!


Seeing the traditional Japanese Manor on the game makes me want to take a trip to Tokyo even more, it's on top of my travel bucket list.


Make sure to pick up a copy of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020 on Nintendo Switch, it's the hottest gaming gift right now!
