Dream events have always been a hallmark mode in the Mario and Sonic series; they’ve been the closest we’re likely to ever get to having a crossover between the two franchises outside of the Olympic stage.
The upcoming Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will be no different, with three new dream modes available to play. This press release from Sega explains them:
Dream Shooting: Aim and take fire at a range of targets placed all around a traditional Japanese manor in this competitive score-based event! At different intervals during the match, flying kites will appear, which players can target for bonus points.
Dream Karate: Fight to light up the most blank spaces featured on the floor to expand your territory, combining the lightning-fast action of Karate with free-for-all gameplay! Every space where an enemy falls by your hand will light up. The player or team that lights up the most spaces at the end of the round is the victor. It’s chaos, fun-filled chaos!
Dream Racing: Hop on a hoverboard and zoom through a downhill course filled with question-mark power-ups and challenging obstacles, performing sweet tricks to earn a speed boost and gain the lead. The first one to the bottom wins!
A trailer showcasing all three is available below, along with a few screenshots. M&S 2020 will be out the first week of November.
