About Mario Strikers: Battle League
Nintendo experimented a lot with Mario games and introduced new concepts that many fans adored with all of the notable characters like Mario, Luigi, Bowsette, Peach, etc, and Mario Strikers Charged was the first sports-based game that captured fans’ delight on Wii. After 15 years, Nintendo broke the ice with the announcement of Mario Strikers: Battle League and got everyone hyped, both longtime and new fans of the series. In the announcement trailer of the game, we saw the core gameplay with unique features that you’d recognize if you played Mario Kart.
The series has been on hiatus for so long and its revival with Mario Strikers: Battle League is certainly a surprising one and Nintendo making it better than the last game in terms of refined gameplay and mechanics.
Like Mario Strikers Charged, this game is also a 5v5 soccer-based game where both teams have to score maximum goals against each other. Every character comes with their own unique abilities like Yoshi’s special shot that turns the ball into a giant egg that bounces a few times that simultaneously knocks enemies and shoots towards the goal. You can also customize or equip your character with new gear to your preference by using gold coins that are earned in matches. It can augment their stats and their appearance and for a Mario fan, this is like a dream come true.
Is the game coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, or Series X/S?
As much as we want a good Mario soccer game on mainstream consoles like PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, or Series X/S, sadly we don’t see the chances of that happening as Mario IP is owned by Nintendo, and its games are intended only for its consoles. The first Mario Strikers game was released on Gamecube owned by Nintendo and Mario Strikers: Battle League will release on June 10, 2022, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
