I hope so only because it's Japan, I mean they're both mascots for Japanese companies and much better than the mascots chosen for the Tokyo Olympics, can't believe they went for the worst ones (A).

Put I think it'll be a good addition to Switch's library, and the break could potentially give them more time to work on the game. 

I actually think A was the best option xD
I'm very biased towards simple and minimal art, though.

They're so generic is my problem. The other two have so much more character to them.

It would make a lot of sense. With Switch's popularity and the fact the 2020 Games are in Tokyo (with Mario as mascot), it's a good set of circumstances under which to revive the cross-over franchise.

Yeah, you're right. C screams Japan to me. A could be from any country.

A good example is Vinicius and Tom, Rio 2016's mascots. Brazil is known for its nature, so they made a tree, representing the flora, and a jaguar, representing the fauna. The Brazilian flag is green, yellow and blue, so they made Vinicius yellow and blue and Tom blue and green. You look at them and you instantly think of Brazil.

Didn't Sega lose the license for the Olympics? Also, if they lost it, who has it now?

Ubisoft had the license for this year's Winter games. They made that Steep DLC.

Mario and Rabbids at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games

 

OT: Sega doesn't release many console games at all these days, and the last one sold less than half a million. If they do make a game, it will probably be because Nintendo specifically requested it. I don't see Sega going back to it on their own accord. The game referencing the Rio 2016 closing ceremony with Mario would be interesting to see though. 



I'm sorry everyone, but I really want Ubisoft to keep the liscence because steep:road to the Olympics is better than Mario and sonic ever was.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Steep has nothing to do with Summer Olympics sports, so I guess SEGA can keep that license. Ubisoft can have the Winter Olympics ¯_(ツ)_/¯

they said the were making a 2020 Olympics games back in 2016



I think they will do it. It has a huge selling potential. I could see it easily doing 2m+ in Japan alone.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Lmao for some reason it never registered for me that the Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games games were actually officially products of the Olympics ... haha ... losing a license to that must hurt

Oh, my bad, I didnt realize that.

So in that case, sega can keep the summer olympics liscense.
