Can you play as Sonic in Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game?

Got to go faster.

The official game of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Games, entitled Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game, is now live for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and the Nintendo Switch. Users can compete in a variety of Olympic events with their own created avatar. This game is published by SEGA, a well-known company thanks to the lovable Sonic the Headhog. Sonic has a rich history related to the Olympic Games, thanks to the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games franchise. And, you can (kind of) play as Sonic, and here’s how you can make that happen.

You won’t actually be able to play as Sonic in Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game, but you can participate in events with a Sonic outfit that covers your avatar from head to toe.

To equip the outfit to your avatar:

  1. Go and select the Outfits tab on the home screen.
  2. Select the event you want to compete in, and then the avatar.
  3. Scroll through the Clothing customization options, and go all the way down to the bottom of the page.
  4. There, you should find the Sonic outfit. Select it with A (for Xbox) or X (for PlayStation), and you should be good to go.
