    The classic Wii series starring Mario and Sonic characters fighting it out in Olympic competition will be making its debut on the Nintendo Switch. SEGA has announced Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, with the game arriving at the tail end of 2019. An arcade version will also be available in Japan, and a mobile version starring only Sonic series characters will launch in time for the Olympic games, just prior to Summer 2020.

    Why only Sonic Characters for Mobile and why even making a Mobile Version when the switch is a Handheld?​

    Sega doesn’t have the Right to put Mario on their Mobile games.

    Ok. But why making a Mobile Version anyway? The switch is a Handheld and i think no one wants a "shrinked" Version of the Game for Mobile, when you can have the full Game on the go with the switch

    Can't tell you how happy I am about this. I thought there won't be any new entries in this series.
    Loved the last Wii U entry and since there won't be a Mario Sport Mix or Wii Sports on the Switch I'll gladly stick to this.

    They probably have payed a lot of money for the Olympic rights and they will more than likely make a shit load of money from the mobile version of the game.

    If nobody wanted mobile versions of games then why the heck would companies like sega/nintendo/Square Enix ect make them in the first place? Oh yes it's because like I already said mobile games make a shit load of money

    @Chary it's also coming to ps4 minus Mario I would guess lol.
