Each of these events will be controlled through a series of taps and flicks where your timing will be crucial for earning higher scores. You can see some of them in action in the trailer above. Beyond the standard events, there will also be EX stages that add alternative rules to try and keep things interesting.

As you'd expect, there will be multiple characters from the Sonic universe to play as including the blue hedgehog himself, Amy, Knuckles, Tails and Shadow. A full list of the characters that are playable can be found over on the game's official website.

Dr Eggman has taken over Tokyo, deeming it worthy of being his own city since it's large enough to host the Olympics. So, Sonic challenges him to a series of Olympic events to decide the fate of the city.
