With the real games delayed until July of this year due to covid-19, Sega’s had plenty of time to cobble together Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game, coming June 22 to PC, consoles, and Stadia. It’s a collection of 18 sports you can play with your own goofy-looking, costume-sporting avatar.

Despite lacking Sonic and Mario characters, it does not look like Sega’s going for realism in this latest official Olympic Games game. These games boast over-the-top arcade-style sports, alongside an avatar creator filled with ridiculous costumes. The basketball game looks like something straight out of NBA Jam, complete with guy on fire.
