Mario Strikers: Battle League review

review information

Play time: 13 hours

Platform: Nintendo Switch

It wouldn’t be a Nintendo console without Mario’s sports vacation, and on Switch we’ve already seen a lot. Golf, tennis and the Olympics may be the famous plumber’s usual choices, but every now and then we find him on less familiar terrain. It’s been 15 years since he last entered the football field, but finally, Nintendo has returned to the beautiful game once again with Mario Strikers: Battle League Football.

Bringing back the original developers, Next Level Games, Battle League is a family pleasure. It does come with a few changes, though. Some of them come down to numbers – there are fewer playable characters and you can no longer score six goals at once, a little farce. Crucially though, what we have looks more refined and more dexterous, and it’s a lot of fun with friends.

First: forget about formation tactics. That’s 5v5, so you’ll be writing down each character’s unique stats. For example, Bowser has powerful punches and hard-hitting tackles, Toad is fast and great for passing, and Luigi is your classic ‘all-rounder’. It’s worth evaluating your picks, and you can pick everyone on your team except the goalie, Boom Boom. You try to argue over positions with a personified red shell.
