Mario Strikers was one of the Nintendo Wii's most popular games, and one that many players thought would never be revisited.

Thankfully, Nintendo surprised everyone by revealing Mario Strikers: Battle League at Nintendo Direct.

We've got you covered for all the latest information on the game with the game now available.

Gameplay & New Features

The Mario Strikers Battle League gameplay trailer shown off at Nintendo Direct included a few clips of gameplay as well as some elaboration on new changes to the game.

This includes customisation of your team and their stats, new special moves, Hyper Strikes, multiplayer options, as well as some other new features.

The game will feature multiplayer both online and locally, allowing up to 8 players to play at the same time!

Multiplayer Clubs

Mario Strikers: Battle League will feature multiplayer Clubs supporting up to 20 players to battle out with others online.

These Clubs will run Seasons with teams fighting to climb the table to the very end.

For players that want to join together on the pitch for the same team, the game will support up to 8 players with 4 allowed per team in individual matches.


There are currently ten characters confirmed for the game so far with some of the classic Mario characters available.

Mario and Luigi are two of the classics, but we are most looking forward to Bowser as he is usually insane in these games.
