Nintendo has released a new trailer for Mario Strikers: Battle Leaguethe latest installment in the Mario Strikers series, featuring new footage of the upcoming 5-on-5 battle arena football match, along with suggested tactics for savvy players aiming to win.
As in previous titles in the Mario Strikers series, a team of five players attack and defend against the opposing team in order to score points. Teams can do this in a number of ways, either by using classic Mario weapons such as green shells to confuse opponents, sending teammates to attack opposing team members, or performing Hyper Strikes that improve score (think Final Smash attacks in Super Smash Bros Ultimate) by getting your hands on Strike Orbs and dodging enemies long enough until they are within attack range.
Mario Strikers: Battle League will allow players to earn and equip special gear that will improve and customize the strength, speed, and general stats of their team of characters. Local multiplayer will allow up to eight players to compete against each other, while online multiplayer will allow up to two players on the same system to battle against other two-player teams.
Mario Strikers: Battle League will be released on June 10 on Nintendo Switch.
