It was one of the surprises of this Nintendo Direct: Mario Strikers: Battle League Football. This good old plumber puts on the crampons for an arcade football game.
Battle League Football
Years after some Mario Smash Football and Mario Strikers Charged Football, Nintendo is releasing the cleats for Mario again with Mario Strikers: Battle League Football. You can discover the first video of the title above.
The principle of Mario Strikers: Battle League Football is simple: two teams of 5 characters are opposed and the game is playable with four in each team on a single Nintendo Switch console. Online, you can play individual matches but also in “Clubs” mode: up to 20 players per team who compete for the world’s first place.
On your marks
Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, etc. Each character can be modified with equipment (armor among others) to gain skills and various properties. Note that the game has the good idea to offer cutscenes during a goal for example, or during other actions.
Mario Strikers: BattleLeague Football will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch on June 10.
