Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

Due to the fact that Toad isn't here despite the fact that he's was sucked into the game as part of the Story, and Toadette being playable, either SEGA doesn't know what they're doing, or that's not the entire roster for the game.

With less characters than events I do wonder if the guest characters will star in more events, probably two (similar to the veteran characters in Rio 2016 3DS). That would be better than being restricted to one per character though.

Thank you for reading.
That would explain why in that screenshot there’s an extra space next to the question mark
 
They actually cut five characters from Rio Wii U: Sticks, Wave, Toad, Dry Bowser (good riddance), and Nabbit. I'm mostly sad about the removal of Sticks and Wave because now there are even less playable female characters.

I'm happy that Wendy O. Koopa returns, though.

Toadette should just be a fully playable character.

they cut Omega as well, so they cut 3 on each side.

And added Toadette so its a full 32 character roster.

i'll take it, Rosalina is getting the respect she deserves after so many games.

I think (and hope) that it's reserved for Miis, because they are nice to have. Switch still having Mii implementation should make it realistic to have them in this game, since after all, the Mario & Sonic games that have Mii implementation used them.

Thank you for reading.

Is it confirmed that it's only 1 event per guest? Rosalina was in Gymnastics, Rouge was in Volleyball and Eggman Nega was in Long Jump.

Thank you for reading.

I suppose the next Mario & Sonic game after this one will do a somewhat extreme take on what the Nintendo 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games did: have Mario, Sonic, and Mii playable in all events, but restrict the other characters of their respective teams to one event.

I just don't see it. I think that the 3DS version of Rio Olympics is more of an exception, similar to how Mario Kart 7 is an exception for how much it's missing compared to past installments (ex: no playable Waluigi, absent VS race mode). It's very likely that that game is rushed because the other Mario & Sonic games have the regular roster.

Thank you for reading.

Aw, man, they got rid of Sticks? Bummer
 
Not yet, we’ll find out next week at TGS
Yep, guest are indeed coming back.
Rosalina, Eggman Nega and Rogue are categorised separately from the main roster.
