The section on 2D events is at 11 minutes onward.

Sega actually looks like they care about this game for once. Though for the sprite stuff, they should have used Mario World sprites, as the SMB ones sort of clash with the 16-bit Sonic ones.

Shame it looks like the mode seems to be limited to just Bowser, Mario, Luigi, Peach, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Eggman. Would've loved to see the other characters in 8-16 bit styles. Also would've been cool if SEGA tried to recreate DK and Diddy's DKC models/sprites.

It seems to be the best the series has had so far! Can't wait for me to be able to afford it and a second pair of joy-con

Peach not having walking sprites in 2D looks rather cheap considering it has a walking animation in Super Paper Mario.
