If you were a fan of the arcade sports action found in Super Mario Strikers for the GameCube, you might be wondering why Nintendo hasn't given us a sequel yet, given the popularity of football (or soccer) across the globe.

Stepping into the void, Spanish developer Xaloc Studios will soon be bringing Super Kickers League to the Switch eShop, this should scratch the fantasy-football itch quite nicely while we wait for Mario to put on his studded soccer shoes once again.

Here's a bit more info about the game from the official PR:

‘Super Kickers League’ allows you to play crazy, 3 on 3 football matches, where the only thing that matters is scoring more goals than your opponent!

Inspired by games like ‘Super Mario Strikers’ and ‘Soccer Brawl’, ‘Super Kickers League’ is a new concept, where competing with your friends will be more fun than ever. ‘Super Kickers League’ has great graphics, original retro music and engaging gameplay.

With 3 different game modes, unlockable content, up to 10 teams with special abilities, achievements and a local multiplayer of up to 6 players (4 in the PS4 version), Xaloc have ensured this game is full of excitement -and goals!

In ‘Super Kickers League’ each team has a unique ability. The “Teams” mode is played with a single special ability per team, while the “Kickers” mode, lets you form a team of captains and combine their different abilities, turning the pitch into a real battlefield.

Finally, “Retro” mode allows you to play the game with an orthographic camera and pixel art graphics, transforming the graphics into a much more “classic” format.
