Sega has announced that Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020 will be released in May.

It appears that the spirit of friendship that brings Mario and Sonic together only extends to games made for Nintendo consoles.

For the official Tokyo Olympics mobile game, Sonic is going it alone. Sega has confirmed that Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020 will be released on Android and iOS on May 7, 2020.

The game stars a range of popular – and unpopular – Sonic The Hedgehog characters, including Tails, Amy, Knuckles, and Vector. Each one can take part in 15 official Olympic events, as well as various mini-games. The game also includes leaderboards so that players, countries, and regions can compete against each other in the spirit of cutthroat friendship.

Pre-registration for the game opens today on Google Play and the App Store. And based on the number pre-registrations, various rewards will unlock when the game goes live.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
