Sega have officially announced the lineup of games that will be presented at annual anime event - Jump Festa. Attendees will get to see Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, a demo of Project Sakura Wars and more.

Jump Festa is an annual anime convention in Japan and its 2020 iteration is taking place later this month. Various gaming publishers will attend the event with their own lineup of games. Players can expect to see new stuff from Capcom, Sega and Bandai Namco among others.

Today, Sega have officially confirmed their 2020 lineup that will be presented at Jump Festa 2020 in just a couple of weeks. The popular publisher will arrive with two sports games - Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Video Game. Attendees will get to try both of these titles at Sega's booth.

Another game that Sega are bringing to Jump Festa 2020 is Project Sakura Wars. If you're unfamiliar with the title, it's exclusive to the Japanese market and the Western release is not in Sega's plans. The publisher calls it a cross-genre title with gameplay that consists of adventure and battles. So yeah, an action-adventure basically. This one will also have a completely playable demo for the attendees.

And that's everything from Sega on Jump Festa 2020. Unless the publisher have a couple of surprises in their sleeve, it's going to be a pretty underwhelming showcase. That being said, it's understandable that Sega decided to go with these titles since Jump Festa is usually targeted at a younger audience.

Earlier this week, Capcom also confirmed their lineup. It consists of Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Street Fighter V Champion Edition.

Jump Festa 2020 will be hosted near Tokyo, Japan between 21 December and 22 December 2020.
