The Mario Strikers soccer series was first introduced on GameCube back in 2005 and was last seen as Mario Strikers Charged in 2007 on Wii. In the upcoming Battle League game, players can choose their favorite characters from the Mario universe to compete in 5v5 matches featuring skill shots dubbed “Hyper Strikes,” special items, and tackles. Similar to Mario Kart, the gear chosen will affect in-game performance.
The returning title supports up to eight players on a single Nintendo Switch system, and online clubs support up to 20 players each which compete worldwide for rankings.
Mario Strikers: Battle League will be available beginning on June 10th, and is now available for preorder on the Nintendo website for $59.99 USD.
Elsewhere in gaming, Warcraft is arriving on mobile later this year.
