The game is the sequel to the massively popular Wii title, Mario Strikers Charged – however, the original Mario Strikers game was released for the GameCube way back in 2005 and is still to this day deemed as a masterpiece of a game.
Now the popular franchise is back and it looks better than ever on the Nintendo Switch console. Branded with the new slogan, ‘Anything goes on this pitch!’, Nintendo tells fans to prepare for a five-on-five sport like football that’s way heavy on offence.
Nintendo’s description of the game also reads:
“Aim for goals by dribbling and passing to teammates, as well as using tackles, items and crushing special shots. If you spot an orb on the pitch, grab it and charge it up while your opponents are distracted to unleash Hyper Strike, a special shot that can earn you two goals in one!”
“Customise your team as you see fit by equipping them with gear that changes not only their appearance, but also their stats like speed, strength, and pass accuracy.”
With the release date moving ever closer, Nintendo France has now released a full video of a match to get us excited for the upcoming game. Check it out below.
Nintendo France releases full match gameplay
Here it is, a full match of Mario Strikers Battle League for us all to enjoy.
The French branch of Nintendo released a gameplay video of the upcoming football game featuring a special commentator. They hired Riccardo Trevisani, who is a popular football commentator who has covered a variety of football games including some Serie A and Champions League ties.
The match ultimately ends in a 3-2 victory for the Rockets. A bitter taste of defeat for the Crowns. Let’s hope they come back stronger next game.
This is the first time we’ve seen a full game in action and we have to say the gameplay runs like clockwork. The animations look good and overall it looks like it’s going to be a really fun game to get your hands on.
