Nintendo has released an overview trailer giving us a good look at Mario Strikers: Battle League. This should look familiar to anyone who's played another Strikers game; two teams of five compete in a version of soccer with a heavy emphasis on tackling and physical takedowns. Players can also use items, similar to Mario Kart, like a banana peel or giant turtle shell to impede other players.
The biggest change here is in the team make up. In previous entries, players would choose a captain who was a main Mario character, then be backed up by a goaltender and three identical sidekicks. Here, there are ten characters with unique stats and teams will be made up of four individual characters (with a Boom Boom in the net). Character stats can also be further modified with equipment.
The trailer also details how the multiplayer works. Locally, up to eight players can compete at once, and can use a single Joy-con to play. When playing online, only two people can play at a time on one console. There's also "club mode," which lets up to twenty people form their own club and compete against other clubs for leaderboard rankings.
Mario Strikers: Battle League will release June 10 on Nintendo Switch.
