Mario and his pals are feeling athletic again, but their new
3DS outing isn’t settling for a single sport.
Announced during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Mario
Sports Superstars pits Nintendo’s mascots against each other in five sports:
soccer, baseball, tennis, golf, and horse racing.
Unlike other compilation
games, Nintendo says these sports haven’t been downsized or simplified – for instance,
Superstars’ rendition of soccer features full-fledged 11-person teams. Nintendo
also says every included sport will feature single-player tournaments as well as local and online multiplayer support.
Mario Sports Superstars will launch
on Nintendo 3DS next Spring.
