Google will roll out a new interactive game Friday available through its Search logo, one of several updates planned to keep visitors up to date on the Tokyo Olympics.

The company’s interactive Doodle game will have players competing in several competitions including skateboarding, rugby and climbing. The games, made in partnership with Studio 4°C, will feature a “16-bit” visual style resembling classic home video game console titles.

Interactive games available through Google’s logo is nothing new. The company has rolled out several games over the past several years, including “Pac-Man,” the classic cell phone game “Snake” and one inspired by the card game “Lotería.”

Google is also rolling out updates to Search, adding details on Olympics searches including medal counts and daily video recaps.

Along with updated searches, Google’s virtual Assistant will host a new game called NBC Sports Trivia tied to the Summer Games.

The Tokyo Olympics officially kick off Friday.
