Google taps into the Olympic spirit with this doodle
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have officially started, with the opening ceremony happening at 12 pm GMT today, and Google has given us another way to celebrate all the Japanese history and culture we could have expected if we weren’t in the midst of a pandemic.
Doodle Champion Island Games
Doodle Champion Island Games is a series of Olympic event-themed 16-bit mini-games that you can access on the Google homepage from today. Playing as Lucky, the Calico Ninja Cat, players can choose to join from the choice of four teams (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green) that are represented by a different animal: Ushi (cow), Karasu (crow), Inari (fox), and Kappa (Japanese water spirit). Google will track the score of the four teams on a global leaderboard.
The seven mini-games revolve around new and returning Summer Olympic events such as skateboarding, climbing and table tennis, with each event having its own “Legendary Champion” from Japanese folklore and history to challenge.
Players will also be able to navigate Lucky through a festival populated with the games and champions, complete side quests, and experience the cut scenes created by Studio 4°C.
Doodle Champion Island Games is available to play now.
