What are Mario Strikers?
Mario Strikers: Battle League is an upcoming association football/soccer video game that has been developed by Next Level Games and Nintendo EPD. The game is being published by Nintendo.
Nintendo is known for its high definition games and that is the exact reason why gamers are so excited to finally get a soccer game developed by Nintendo.
The gaming experience is going to be very familiar and fun to gamers who are well-acquainted with previous Mario Striker games. Just like in previous Mario games, there will be two teams, each team consisting of five players. Of these five players, four are going to be players and one goalie. The game is points based. The teams will acquire points by getting the ball into the opposite team’s net. You can join an online club to push and shove your way up the ranks.
One thing that a lot of gamers have been demanding is the appearance of sidekicks in the game. Unfortunately, no update as of today states that there will be any generic sidekick appearance in this new game.
However, if you are wondering what is new about this recent game launch, it is the new Hyper Strike ability that makes this game different and special from all.
What is the Hyper Strike ability?
This newly added ability has got every gamer stunned and players can’t wait to finally get their hands on this new feature. The hyper strike ability is this game’s special move. It is very similar to the Super Strike ability of Super Mario Strikers and Mega Strike of Mario Strikers Charged. Their activation is also similar to that of the latter.
Does saying that it is similar to previous abilities dull its spark? It should not because its speciality is that it can only be obtained using a collectible called Orb. Now how to get these orbs? These orbs can be found on the field randomly.
Moreover, each character will exhibit different gameplay-related properties for this hyper strike ability. If this doesn’t excite you enough, let us tell you, this ability can even bypass goalies.
Characters and Fields
As far as we know, the game will have 10 playable characters. Initially, players can play using the Rosalina character. Other than that, there are Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario, Waluigi and Boom Booms as a goalie. There are also characters that are non-playable like Toads, Yoshis, Shy Guys, and Koopa Troopas.
As far as the fields are concerned, the soccer fields are now two completely different halves. This means each half of the field will have its own dedicated theme. We have come to know of five fields: Mushroom Hill, Lava Castle, Horror Mansion, Resort Jungle, and Princess Castle.
Mario Striker is available for pre-order as of today on popular platforms like Amazon. In several countries, the official Nintendo Store already has its pre-orders live. Also, there are some platforms from which you can avail of the game for comparatively a cheaper price and also attain pre-order benefits.
