After a period of silent treatment regarding Mario Strikers: Battle League (likely to keep the focus on Nintendo Switch Sports), it looks like Nintendo is finally looking to start boarding the hype train for its next big release.
We've already seen a brand new introductory video for the game (albeit in Japanese), and now Nintendo has shared some banging new key art via the official website. We get a fantastic look at some of the main cast of characters, but man, do they look angry!
Check out the full gallery below:
What do you make of that? Hopefully we'll be seeing some more from the game in the run up to its release on June 10th, 2022. Don't forget too, if you pre-order from the My Nintendo Store in the UK, you can bag a cosy looking scarf as a little bonus!
Will you be kicking off with Mario Strikers: Battle League when it launches? Let us know in the comments section below.
It's good to be back....
Absolutely amazing as per usual for Mario Strikers art, kudos to the artist(s)! I can't wait for this game, I really really really hope it's good and doesn't fall flat quickly like tennis and golf did. I have faith in Next Level Games though.
This looks SO good. So much personality and style, it's the only mario sports game that really interests me. I can't wait.
Poor Toad getting duffed by Wario in that bottom pic!!
PS I never understand all the bad comments about Mario Tennis Aces?! I LOVE that one...truly brilliant game. Mario golf was a bit iffy, but still worth the money and has a lot of replay value...but Tennis is amazing!!
Daisy never gets any love.
@Toads-Friend Maybe it's because the game launched with little content, maybe it's because I compare it too much to the N64 and GameCube entries, but I was bored incredibly quickly with Mario Tennis Aces. Glad you're enjoying it, but I couldn't find much joy in it personally. I stopped playing it within the first week, and because it felt so boring I never felt the urge to come back to it even after all the content updates either and just aforementioned N64 or GameCube games of I had the urge to play Mario Tennis.
This game is looking really promising. Fantastic artwork!
Looking forward to its release. Looks great
This ain't your grandma's game!
Looks like advertising for spicy chips lol
Please bring back the Kremlings and make K Rool a playable character!
Next months Switch Online rewards confirmed. Oh please please please.
Wario and Donkey Kong are cheating!
I don't know... is Yoshi cheating too? Are you allowed to score a goal with your tongue?... Hmm...
I’m REALLY digging what they did to Waluigi here.
Instead of going with the vaguely inappropriate gestures (which was never going to slip by unnoticed in today’s climate) they infused him with the mustache-twirling supervillain vibe he’s always had somewhat, and I’m really digging it.
Just in general, the character designs look great, and the realistic, gritty tone was one of the reasons I really wanted to play a game in the series. Now if only we get some news on some single player content, and I’ll be sold…
Love Wario's expression!
Why did Croc get dropped as Goalie? He was epic
Looks absolutely stellar. I'm looking forward to this game despite being worried Daisy is still a no-show in any ads/promos we've seen.
@Fizza I was legit gonna say that before I saw your comment lmao
Not complaining about how the games up until now look, but if we get to play a Mario Strikers game that looks just like the artwork in motion, that would be amazing.
@Friendly Considering how this isn't allowed:
I think Yoshi's going to be getting more than a red card at this rate.
The small roster is a disappointment but let no one ever accuse Next Level Games of putting anything less than maximum effort in their art department.
The art looks nice, and Toad deserves every piece of that Wario bump 😂. I still hope Daisy makes it in this game though.
This artwork looks amazing.
I'm not surprised they're angry considering they're all playing football.
@Toads-Friend oooooooooh my I missed that if it weren't for your post! I laughed soooo hard!!! These are menacing!! I LOVE IT!!!
@JakedaArbok He looks a bit like Dick Dastardly!
I’m starting to get worried of how many hours of my life I will sink into this game…
I'm loving that Rosalina art! Awesome.
@Smug43 hope we can play together ❤️
I’ve always loved how gritty the Strikers art is. I’m excited for this game!
I guess they had to make the characters as intense as possible to make up for such a dull sport.
The lack of Daisy is worrying
Peach going full Samus
It seems to have retained the personality of the old games.
I am liking it, but I am not sure I'll have a gorup what wants to play it with me regularly. We used to have a lot of fun with the Gamecube version.
I love this artwork style. So much energy!
Yeah, I can definitely see that. Maybe a bit of Robbie Rotten as well.
I missed this artwork style, glad to see it back.
Waluigi's face expression just cracks me up.🤣
Great artwork can’t wait for this game any chance of a Mario baseball game pls Nintendo
@Patendo I assume it's probably because the Kremlings haven't been really relevant as of late. Maybe if there was a new DKC game with K. Rool and the Kremlings back they would've kept them, but Bum Bum has been getting more attention in games recently.
Wario looks like he wants to play dodgeball instead. Somebody’s getting hit in the face.
I like the Wario tackling Toad image, kinda reminiscent of Wario's Woods.
I hope this game will get updated months after it comes out which includes adding more new playable characters & stuff like that just like Mario Tennis Aces & Mario Golf Super Rush.
Mario Strikers continues to carry the torch Sega Soccer Slam lit imo! A great underrated, overlooked arcade soccer gem.
Really excited for this! I pray it is a deep, full, comprehensive, layered experience with lots of content and unlockables from launch onwards.
… Wun can only hope.
I've waited a long time to see Rosalina in Strikers style and honestly, she's looking good
This game's artwork looks just as good as the artwork Strikers Charged had. This looks amazing.
