It's been quite some time since we last took to the football / soccer pitch with Mario and chums, but the series is finally coming back - Mario Strikers: Battle League arrives on Switch on 10th June, and it looks rather impressive.
Of course there's the usual chaotic, over-the-top action, but most exciting are the multiplayer options. Local multiplayer will support up to 8 players, and the online 'Clubs' mode will have up to 20 players active at one time.
Prepare for Strike, a five-on-five soccer-like sport with no rules – do whatever it takes to win! In this game, you can tackle, use items and activate special shots. Up to eight players – four players on each team – can compete against each other on one Nintendo Switch system. In addition to individual matches, online play will let 20 players join up and compete to become the world’s top club. The main rule in this sport is to rule the field!
We reckon this could be a bit of a sales breakthrough for the series thanks to the Switch audience. Let us know whether you're planning to pick this up!
