Who can forget the first time when the unthinkable happened and Mario and Sonic appeared together in a video game? It all seems like a distant memory now, but the latest trailer for the upcoming Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 makes it look like one of the most fun instalments yet.

The game will offer 10 classic 2D style events in the vein of the classic arcade game Hyper Sports. The 8-bit mode is called 'Tokyo 1964', in homage to the last time the Olympics were in Tokyo.

A recent PR splurge details things in more... well, detail:

Enjoy 10 different classic 2D events with friends and family:
10m Platform (Diving)
400m Hurdles
Gymnastics - Vault
Kayak Single (K-1) 1000m
Long Jump
Shooting - Trap
...all presented in a generation-spanning game for the ages! If you’ve never seen Bowser in classic 2D perform an armstand dive off a 10-meter platform into the water, you’re in for an incredible time.

Have a watch of the trailer above and let us know if you are looking forward to this when it pole-vaults its way onto Switch in November.
