Mario Strikers Battle League Football | Preview

Mario Strikers Battle League Football is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 10th. and never, as in this case, do we encounter an apparently welcome return. For those of you who don’t understand why his announcement received so much support during last February’s Direct, know that the Mario Strikers series of games, which debuted on the Game Cube in 2005 as Mario Smash Football, is a variant of 5 football that has no rules and whose game dynamics completely captures all the ideas of the Japanese about the game of football, from the loud blows that made Captain Tsubasa iconic to the illusions seen in Shaolin football.

The formula that, when first appeared, received great reviews from the public and critics thanks to its ability to perfectly combine frantic football arcade game mechanics, a bit of randomness borrowed from Mario Kart, and a good dose of strategy needed to understand how to form the best teams, balancing the pros and cons of each of the characters on the cast.

Second chapter released for the Wii in 2007. , opened more towards the more heterogeneous scope that the console had, introducing slightly simplified game mechanics and introducing motion controls. It wasn’t a flop, but it certainly convinced less than its predecessor, leading players to think that the series’ subsequent disappearance from subsequently released consoles was a silent response from Colossus of Kyoto to the little hype generated by Mario Strikers Charged Football.

Today at fifteen years after the last chapter of (which ironically came out on May 25, 2007), we’re here to tell you about our experience with Mario Strikers Battle League Football, which showed us through an hour of intense testing just how much the formula The series is up to date for nothing, preparing for a big comeback on the shores of Nintendo Switch.

Mario Strikers Fight League Football uses the formula of previous chapters: 5-man teams, no rules, power-ups that rain down on the playing field, pushes and kicks galore, and a commitment to get to know the various characters that make up the roster to be able to master every aspect of the football field.

Starting right from the characters present in Mario Strikers Battle League Football, 10 (Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Yoshi, Toad, Wario, Waluigi, Rosalina and Donkey Kong) and can be briefly divided into three macro categories: balanced , nimble and fast and heavy and persistent. . These three types were never clearly defined in Mario Strikers Battle League Football, but a few moments on the football field are enough to understand how Mario turns out to be a character capable of filling all roles without standing out in anyone, Toad can easily move forward. field, and Bowser can take on any enemy with ease and with unparalleled brutality, making him slow but virtually unstoppable.

Each of the characters featured in Mario Strikers Battle League Football, minus this summary classification, will have very precise statistics that will indicate which technique each of them will excel at or be less effective at. This differentiation represents the beating heart of the strategic element in Mario Strikers Battle League Football which, in this interaction, gets further layered with the possibility of buying clothes that can improve or worsen this statistic.

Credits earned by winning tournaments or by unlocking them against friends can be bought in the shop in the game series “Armor” that will work to increase the value of a certain stat and lower than another in constant work by balancing. So, if your team of your favorite characters is bad at contrasts or bad at super shots, you can go ahead and tweak some settings through clothing to better balance each of your players. to make them cover in a more pronounced amnir the exact roles in the field.

Mario Strikers Battle League Football matches are very fast and only once does the team with the most points win the match. During a “standard” match, a series of bonuses will rain down on the playing field allowing various players to collect and use them wisely to be able to dominate the opposing team.

As for Mario Kart, we also find in Mario Strikers Battle League Football: turtle shells, bombs, banana peels, sprint mushrooms and stars that grant temporary invincibility. In addition to Power-Ups transplanted from Nintendo’s “kart” series, Mario Strikers Battle League football matches will also feature energy orbs that guarantee the opportunity for all team members to make a “Super Shot” .

These unique skills for each character are not very easy to use and require a minimum of strategy and good vigilance to effectively turn the tide of the game. Whenever our team is full of energy, you can decide to take a Super Shot. This will require load your shot at least before stopping the cursor at two exact points of the half moon to make the shot unstoppable and easily guarantee your team two points.

As you would expect, during the loading phases of the Super Shot, the player will not be invulnerable and the operation can be interrupted by a simple contrast, requiring very fast learning of the game action to perform the Super Shot. . with the necessary calmness and precision. Similarly, a bug in the mini-game related to the crescent indicator does not guarantee that the supershot will hit the target with ease offering a window to the opponent’s goalkeeper to counter him.

What we especially appreciate about Super Shots, besides the great cinematics that accompany them, is their uniqueness combined with their ability to generate gods the debuff is always different for all players on the opposing team who come into contact with the ball.

Peach’s Super Shot, for example, will charm every player, including the goalkeeper, making them much more gallant and making our team members miss or even, in the specific case of the goalkeeper, move to hit the ball into the net. . Bowser, on the other hand, will generate flames that will burn our opponents, causing them to run up and down the field for a few seconds. Essentially, each Super Shot in Mario Strikers Battle League Football will not be limited to “Easy Double”. but it will have to be learned with due skill in order to use it malus which it will be able to generate in a strategic way.

Some time ago we defined the game Mario Strikers Battle League Football based on Power-Up and Super Shooting “standard” because, in accordance with the recent tradition of Nintendo sports products, at any time you can decide to start the game by deactivating Super Shots, Power-Ups, Armor and stats shifting the focus of the game away from exploiting all of these auxiliary elements to the player’s simple “notebook in hand” skills.

Also in this context, Mario Strikers Battle League Football does not disappoint, and as soon as Power-Ups and Super Shots give way to pass-throughs and crosses, games become an “arcade football” concentrate of all the technique, player skill and stark contrasts of .

In the company of Mario Strikers, Battle League Football lives up to expectations, managing to turn into the perfect “friendly ruin” for those who have not been seen on the Nintendo Switch screens for a long time, but where the game we are sure it will really shine is in the online sector. .

Mario Strikers Battle League Football, in fact, provides for online management on a par with the guilds present in the MMORPG, or based on multiplayer. about creating multi-player clubs that will allow their members to earn rewards, experience and other content is currently unknown, simply by being part of a group of players and actively participating in its activities.

As for the multiplayer sector, which we have not had a chance to try yet, Nintendo will provide a trial version of Mario Strikers Battle League Football, for the occasion renamed First Strike which will allow you to test the online security sector in the following timeslots:

  • Saturday 4 June 05:00-06:00

Heading: GuidesAuthor: Funtik

From the start of Mario Strikers: Battle League , players are provided with five standard equipment sets for competing in online and offline matches, but there is also a sixth set that players can unlock. This set is known as the bushido set and includes the bushido helmet, bushido bracers, bushido armor, and bushido sandals. Unlike the rest of the outfit, which is made in the form of futuristic sportswear, the bushido outfit resembles a Japanese samurai.

As such, this unique culture is featured in this new set of gear that players can unlock in Mario Strikers : Battle League .

To unlock the new bushido outfit in Mario Strikers: Battle League , players must complete all six cup battles in normal game mode. These battles include Cannon Cup, Chain, Cup, Turbo Cup, Muscle Cup, Trick Cup and Championship Cup.
