One of the first-party highlights of the latest Nintendo Direct was the reveal of Mario Golf: Super Rush.

This marks the return of the Mario Golf series, after quite some time. In fact, we haven't had an entry in the series since the 3DS title, dating back to 2014.

In Camelot's latest instalment, arriving on Switch on 25th June, you'll be able to enjoy golfing with familiar Mushroom Kingdom characters through a variety of lush and scenic courses.

The game will include both local and multiplayer modes and the highlight of the lot is Speed Golf.

In this mode, players tee off at the same time and race to the green. There's also a Story Mode - starring your Mii characters - yay, Mii are back. They'll interact with the Mushroom Kingdom characters, complete golf challenges and earn experience points to power-up stats.

To top it off, there are motion controls - allowing you to hold your Joy-Con controller as a golf club.
