This past June, Sega announced Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020, a mobile game that appears to be similar in style to the Mario & Sonic series, and so it will offer 15 separate Olympic Games events and a plethora of playable Sonic characters. Until today, there hasn't been much mentioned about the upcoming title, but luckily Sega has just revealed that Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020 will land on Android on May 7th and that it's officially available for pre-registration starting today.
The above trailer for Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020 was published today, and it would appear that Doctor Eggman is up to his old tricks, and so Sonic has challenged Ivo for the right to remain in Tokyo City. This means it will be up to Sonic and his friends to compete in 15 separate Olympic-themed events against the Doctor and his goons.

Sonic at the Olympic Games – Tokyo 2020 will most likely arrive as a free-to-play release, and we already know the title will contain in-app purchases, but of course, Sega hasn't offered any details about the game's monetization, so it's still unknown how bad things will get.
