Mario Strikers: Battle League Announced For Nintendo Switch
A new Mario Strikers game for Nintendo Switch was announced during the Nintendo Direct, and will be released on June 10.
The game features the classic Mario Strikers action of chaotic item usage, aggressive slide tackles, and super shots. The game has two new features; gear and Super Strikes. Every playable character has different gear that can be equipped, changing both their appearance and their stats. The Super Strikes can be used by grabbing an orb and powering up, releasing a power shot that counts as two goals if it goes in the net.
