- Mario Strikers Battle League Football trailer: what to remember
Expected for June 10, Mario Strikers: Battle League Football has not been much talked about. Only a trailer was broadcast during the Nintendo Direct in February, analyzed by the editorial staff. In the process, quality information is identified thanks to the Australian classification site: it is Next Level Games that will develop the title. The Canadian studio, bought last year by Nintendo, has already worked on the old episodes of the license but also on Luigi’s Mansion 3.
Today, that should restore the balm to the heart of those who are waiting with crampons on their feet for the new iteration of Mario Football. Via its Japanese Youtube channel, Nintendo released an almost five-minute trailer. It takes up many sequences already broadcast in the trailer published at the beginning of the year, but also allows us to glimpse some new features.
If we hope to have a French version of this trailer around 3:00 p.m., we will have to deal with kana and Japanese kanji in the meantime. The first minute of this trailer serves as a reminder of the premise of Mario Strikers: Battle League Football. Two teams of four characters (five with the goalkeeper) compete on a field during a match during which the rules do not exist: you can tackle your opponents on the electric walls, play with your hand, or even use objects to prevent the opponent from recovering the ball. In the wake of this reminder, a new feature for this Nintendo Switch opus is making its debut: charged tackle/tackle. Usable on his teammates, it allows you to send them forward and benefit from a considerable advantage.
In the rest of the video, Nintendo illustrates the Hyper Strikes. Usable on the condition of recovering a special object on the ground, they make it possible to score two points at once if the ball goes into the back of the net. If that of Luigi had already been put forward, we can see that of Waluigi as well as that of Peach. In addition, it is the statistics that are highlighted in this trailer: it is the first opus to personalize its players with objects with distinct characteristics. Some helmets increase shooting power, others speed… A customization that will prove to be strategic given the importance of these statistics.
Finally, the trailer briefly returns to the online mode of Mario Strikers: Battle League Football. As a reminder, it will be possible to create your own club and invite your friends there: it will be possible to choose your shirt colors away or at home, as well as the home field. Finally, Nintendo recalls that the online mode will allow you to measure your level with classified games: you will have to burn your divisions with your club. A match that begins on June 10 exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
