    The Olympics are over, and as is customary the Olympic torch was passed from the current hosts to the next. And what better appearance for Shinzō Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, than dressed as one of Japan's most well-known exports. Springing from the classic green pipe, Mr. Abe burst from his Super Mario disguise to reveal his true identity.

    I for one am hoping that this is a hint of what is to come in the Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony.

    Honestly I have a feeling Nintendo will play a big part in the Tokyo olympics.

    Video game olympics in 2020! YES Can't wait. Now mario and sonic come to life as they rush and race across track and field events, play basketball, tennis, and other fun activites. Then pacman will join and megaman, and some final fantasy characters, and even bayonetta with her long legs doing gymnastics. :D

    YOU WILL REGRET GREASTEST MOMENT IN HISTORY! :P
    The final event is gonna be a brawl!.... no a Melee!.... No the announcement of the next smash bros with over 100 Characters!:rolleyes:
