One of the pieces of update news to come out of the Nintendo Direct Showcase was the reveal of the new content coming to Mario Strikers: Battle League.

The big take aways from this announcement was the arrival of two new players: Pauline and Diddy Kong. Making a name for herself following Super Mario Odyssey, Pauline is set to be a useful asset on your team, with Nintendo summarising her play style as the following: 'a physical powerhouse with fast movements and strong tackles.'

Diddy Kong looks set to play the field a little more in the midfield position, being initially described as 'a midfield speedster with dazzling techniques and high pass accuracy.'

On top of these new signings, the update will also entail new gear, another stadium, a skill point-based Striker Ranking, customisation options for supporters and match celebration effects.

With all of these coming out as a part of the update, we can't help but wonder whether they would have been better to just delay and release a finished game after all! The release date for the update is currently listed as 'this month', but we will be sure to update you as soon as we have some more specifics.
