TOKYO OLYMPICS 2021 FEAT. SONIC FINAL FANTASY & KINGDOM HEARTS

The opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics features video game music from Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Kingdom Hearts, and other series.

Despite the fact that the shadow of COVID looms large over the entirety of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which took place in 2021), the opening ceremony was jam packed with absolutely banging orchestrations of video game music from franchises such as Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Kingdom Hearts, Sonic the Hedgehog, Monster Hunter, and even SaGa. The most bizarre aspect is that the list of franchises that are represented is actually quite a bit greater than that. In addition to the complete list of video game music that was played at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony, Nikkan Sports also includes a list of video game music that has been translated into English by Twitter user Audrey.

While Mario is not featured in this musical medley, bear in mind that the previous Olympics concluded with a gigantic Mario reenactment, which was also rather amazing.
