Mario and the game are here to play…
Now that we’re just one day and one month away from the release of Mario Strikers: Battle League on June 10, 2022, we now have a first look at the game’s opening cutscene, which can be seen here:
Whilst the trailer might not come across as explosive or adrenaline pumping as previous Mario Strikers opening cutscenes, it’s still utterly gorgeous nonetheless, much like this new imagery shared by Nintendo:
About Mario Strikers: Battle League:
Introducing Strike, a 5-on-5, soccer-like sport with no rules—do whatever it takes to win! Get gritty and try to score the most goals by tackling enemies, using items, and pulling off score-boosting Hyper Strikes. Super Mario series mainstays like Peach, Toad, and Yoshi put their cleats (and stats) to the pitch and will stop at nothing to score. Customize your characters with gear that can augment their stats and appearance. Take the carnage online* or pass the ball to players locally**—just look out for the electric fence.
Join an online club to push and shove your way up the ranks – Band together with up to 20 strikers online* and compete against other clubs for points. Find the right club for you, team up with friends, and bring your own striker style to the table. Strive to become the world’s top club each season!
Pummel the pitch with up to 8 players – 8 players can go for the goal on one Nintendo Switch system, with local wireless**, or online*. Bring along a secondary striker on the same system in online battles, too. Locally, 4 players on each team can go cleat-to-cleat in individual matches.
