Prepare for Strike, a five-on-five soccer-like sport with no rules – do whatever it takes to win!

Mario Strikers: Battle League you can tackle, use items and activate special shots.

Get gritty and try to score the most goals by tackling enemies, using items, and pulling off score-boosting special shots. Super Mario series mainstays like Peach, Toad, and Yoshi put their cleats (and stats) to the pitch and will stop at nothing to score. Customize your characters with gear that can augment their stats and appearance. Take the carnage online or pass the ball to players locally—just look out for the electric fence.

Band together with up to 20 strikers online and compete against other clubs for points. Find the right club for you, team up with friends, and bring your own striker style to the table. Strive to become the world’s top club each season!

Check out the new trailer to learn about additional gameplay details, including all the ways you can thwack, zap and dropkick your opponents on your way to victory!

In Mario Strikers: Battle League, players can select among familiar faces from the Mushroom Kingdom like Mario, Peach, Donkey Kong and Toad, and play locally* with up to eight players or take on the competition online!** Players can use a Team Tackle to help a teammate cover extra ground or knock down opponents. Or snatch a Strike Orb to try to unleash a Hyper Strike for two points. Strike has no fouls – so you can make the other team wish they never crossed cleats with you!

The rules may be non-existent, but protection is paramount. While the game is easy to pick up and play, players can deploy deeper strategies by donning flashy gear that can be equipped to boost their stats, which will vary between characters, including increased speed and shooting for more scoring potential, or up their strength to resist tackles. Each character also has their own signature Striker Style to discover.

Once you’re geared up, gather your fearsome friends together in the online-only Strikers Club mode! In this mode, you can create your own club with up to 20 strikers or join an existing one, then compete against other clubs to gain points and shove your way up the rankings each season. Club owners can customize their club’s uniform and will also earn tokens after each match, which can be used to customize the club stadium. It’s enough to make Yoshi’s feet flutter!

8 players can go for the goal on one Nintendo Switch system, with local wireless, or online. Bring along a secondary striker on the same system in online battles, too. Locally, 4 players on each team can go cleat-to-cleat in individual matches.

The main rule in this sport is to rule the field!

Mario Strikers: Battle League is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 10, 2022 with pre-orders beginning today in Nintendo eShop.
