How Long Does It Take To Beat Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020?

The Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games titles are rarely hits. They usually sit in the 60 to 70 Metacritic range, which never has them in contention for Game of the Year. Regardless, people must be buying them, because Sega has been pumping them out since 2007. And now we have a new entry in – deep breath – Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.


How long does it take to beat this latest Mario & Sonic Olympic outing, which has a title so long it barely fits on our website? Here's your answer.

According to the fine people at IGN, the story mode in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 takes around six hours to complete. For the equally fine folks at Nintendo Life, however, the story mode only took approximately four hours to run through. Both of those lengths are quite surprising, in that you wouldn't expect a game of this type to even have a story mode. Couldn't Sega just throw a collection of mini-games together and call it a day? At any rate, when you average the two out, it should take most players five hours to play through the story mode from start to finish.


Is that all the fun and enjoyment you'll get out of — deep breath again – Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020? Probably not. Along with the story mode, you'll also get a number of multiplayer games you can play with friends, which include real-life Olympic events that are sometimes shown in 2D retro graphics (a nice touch). You could likely keep going back to those again and again, so that's something to factor into your buying decision if you're concerned about replay value.
