Google has launched its Doodle Champion Island Games – a retro 16-bit JRPG world, built on an island. This consists of 7 mini-games, several side-quests, legendary opponents and characters  you can interact with.

To create this game, Google has partnered with a Tokyo-based animation studio, STUDIO 4°C. The game is available for free on Google’s homepage for everyone looking to be a part of this gaming Olympics. But keep in mind that this game will only be available for a limited time – throughout the duration of the Tokyo Olympics.

Each game has a champion who you need to defeat, namely the Kijimuna (marathon) Tengu (table tennis) Princess Otohime (artistic swimming), Yoichi (archery), the Oni – along with Lucky’s lineup led by Momotaro (rugby); Fukuro (rock climbing) and Tanuki (skateboarding). 

After defeating all 7 champions, you are eligible to play the increasingly difficult versions of these games.

Japanese culture and video games

The developers of this game have created this beautiful world using traditional stories of Japan, and portrayed the lush natural beauty of the country – from snowy mountains to tropical beaches. Google Doodle Champion Island also contains anime-style cutscenes between the minigames and side quests. 

This interactive doodle game is probably the most extensive game in this category that Google has ever tried and, needless to say, nailed।

But it is also fitting to conclude  that this tech. giant has been successful in offering a fitting tribute to Japan’s rich history of video games, culture and anime. That at a time when we understand the diversity of sports and indulge ourselves in the Tokyo Summer Olympics makes these games worth a strike.
