The game will be developed by longtime series stewards Camelot and promises to offer modes that both simplify the series for beginners and add complexity for experts. Nintendo will release the game for the 3DS this summer.

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata unveiled the game as part of a Nintendo Direct announcement. Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Wario, and Waluigi are all shown in screenshots as playable characters.

Other announcements during the Nintendo Direct presentation included Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, a new DLC campaign for New Super Mario Bros. U focusing squarely on Luigi called New Super Luigi U., the release date for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and the unveiling of Donkey Kong Country Returns for the 3DS.

Mario Golf: World Tour will be the sixth Mario Golf game in a series that has been running since 1999, with previous titles appearing on the N64, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and GameCube. The last entry in the series, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, was released in 2003.
