During today's Nintendo Direct presentations it was confirmed that a new Mario Golf game is coming to the 3DS this summer.

Mario Golf: World Tour is being developed by Camelot Software Planning and will feature a wide range of courses — including some inspired by the fantasy world Mario and his friends inhabit — as well as improved controls and some familiar game mechanics. You can also expect to see plenty of famous characters from the world of Nintendo, including Donkey Kong and Wario.

Will you be taking to the green with Mario this summer? Let us know by leaving a comment.
