Arby's celebrates the release of 'Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020'

Two iconic characters, one delicious restaurant

Arby's social media has always been a goldmine for video game references! Today, the official social media account for the restaurant showed some appreciation for the Nintendo Switch release of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. More particularly, the company's social media manager seems to be quite fond of "Wario on a surfboard". The picture tweeted features very well crafted cardboard creations of the Italian plumber and blue hedgehog with golden metals. It's quite clever how Mario is in front of an Italian sub, and Sonic is in front of some onion rings!

AlphaDream worked on Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games

Will this be their last game?

Not that long ago, we shared the sad news of AlphaDream filing for bankruptcy. It was hard to believe that the developer was in trouble, as they had worked on so many Nintendo titles throughout the years. Still, their financial struggles were big enough to push them to bankruptcy.

What lies ahead for the company? We're not quite sure yet, as it's always possible someone could swoop in and save the day. If that doesn't happen, we now know what AlphaDream's last game was. It's been confirmed that they did some work for Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, which once again gives them ties to Nintendo, as well as SEGA. Let's hope the Big N makes a move and salvages this studio.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!
