You’ll ain’t ready for this…
Once more, new footage of Mario Strikers: Battle League has hit the net and this time it consists of an extensive overview trailer, covering everything from gameplay to trick shots and more. Watch the non-stop action here:
TRICKS, TACKLES AND GOALS GALORE IN THE NEW MARIO STRIKERS: BATTLE LEAGUE FOOTBALL OVERVIEW TRAILER:
In Mario Strikers: Battle League Football, players can select among familiar faces from the Mushroom Kingdom including Mario, Peach, Donkey Kong and Toad, and play locally* with up to eight players or take the competition online.** Players can use a Team Tackle to help a teammate cover extra ground, knock down opponents, or snatch a Strike Orb to unleash a Hyper Strike for two points. Strike has no fouls – so you can make the other team wish they never crossed studs with you!
Even without rules, protection is paramount. While easy to pick up and play, players can also deploy deeper strategies by donning flashy gear that can be equipped to boost their characters’ stats, which will vary between characters, including increased speed and shooting for more scoring potential, or up their strength to resist tackles. Each character also has their own signature Striker Style to discover.
Once geared up, players can gather their fearsome friends together in the online-only Strikers Club mode. In this mode, players are able to create their own club with up to 20 strikers or join an existing one, and then compete against other clubs to gain points and shove their way up the rankings each season. Club owners can customise their club’s uniform and will also earn tokens after each match which can be used to customise the club stadium.
Gear up for no-holds-barred action on the pitch with Mario Strikers: Battle League Football, a five-on-five sport that encourages mayhem and doing what it takes to win. Select among familiar faces from the Mushroom Kingdom and thwack, zap and dropkick your opponents on your way to victory when Mario Strikers: Battle League Football launches for Nintendo Switch on Friday 10th June.
