Mario Strikers: Battle League clubs scratch the FIFA itch

After 15 years off the pitch, Mario is once again lacing up his cleats. Mario Strikers: Battle League is coming to Nintendo Switch next month bringing soccer back to the Mushroom Kingdom.

While Mario Golf: Super Rush featured excellent golfing systems, the package itself was thin.

In Mario Strikers: Battle League, players compete in 4v4 (plus a computer-controlled goalie) “Strike” matches.

The cartoon mischief of it all takes me back to the days of beloved arcade sports titles like NFL Blitz.

The main draw of Mario Strikers: Battle League is its Strikers Club mode. The online mode allows players to create their own club featuring up to 20 friends.

Mario Golf: Super Rush and Mario Tennis Aces both included RPG-inspired single-player modes, that won't be the case for Mario Strikers: Battle League.

Mario Strikers: Battle League launches on June 10 for Nintendo Switch.
