Nintendo also said the Super Rush update improves the game's motion controls, but it did not share any specifics.

"Mario Golf: Super Rush is a compellingly original sports game," reviewer Steve Petite said in GameSpot's Super Rush review. "Super Rush isn’t the best entry in the series, but it's a worthy addition."
