Mario Strikers: Battle League (10 June)- Mario Strikers: Battle League is an upcoming association football/soccer video game.The game shies away from realism, in favour of chaotic, over-the-top gameplay. The game maintains the main premise of the sport, where players maneuver players around a field in efforts to pass and shoot a ball into a goal to score points, with the team with the most points at the end of a game winning the game. However, the game takes many liberties with the sport.Aggressive tackles and attacks are completely allowed, though they give the opposing player “items” to use at their disposal.Items often function in the same way as Mario Kart or Mario Tennis – banana peels can be placed on the field and characters will slip on them, while shells can be shot at characters to temporarily knock them over. No “out of bounds” exists on the field, instead, an electric fence is placed around the field, which players can check and knock opposing characters into.Additionally, collecting a glowing orb that appears on the field allows the player to perform a “Hyper Strike” and score a two-point goal if the move is charged up without interruption.
Platforms: Nintendo Switch

On every mini-game, obstacles appear around the map for added complexity.Players who are too slow, who fall into pink slime, or who fail certain requirements for a mini-game, are eliminated.
