A New Mario Golf Game Coming to Nintendo Switch
Tonight’s Nintendo Direct included 50 minutes of footage about currently available titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, upcoming titles like Bravely Default 2, and brand new game announcements like Splatoon 3. Amongst the night’s announcements included one of the last Mario announcements for the series 35th anniversary, a brand new Mario Golf title.
The newly announced Mario Golf Super Rush will serve as the first console Mario Golf title released since Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour on the GameCube in 2003, and Mario Golf: World Tour in 2014.
Mario Golf Super Rush will allow players to freely roam the golf course in different modes such as Speed Golf –where players will race against their opponents to try and reach their ball and sink it the fastest. The game features different power-up abilities as well as optional motion controls.
Mario Golf Super Rush will be available for Nintendo Switch on June 25, and pre-orders for the game are available now on the Nintendo eShop.
Here is the official description for the game:
“Tee off with family and friends in the biggest Mario Golf game yet
Hit the green with up to four players locally* or online** and golf with familiar Mushroom Kingdom characters. Modes range from Standard Golf to the energetic Speed Golf and an RPG-like golf adventure in story mode. Intuitive motion or button controls, a shot gauge that adapts to the curve of the course, and other new features make it easy for both new players and seasoned pros to drive and putt with power.
Swing simultaneously and make a break for the ball in Speed Golf
Tee off at the same time with up to three other players* and race through the course to get your ball in first. Outpace and interrupt your opponents with dashes and special shots. Luigi, for example, can freeze the green and King Bob-omb can pelt the course with bombs.
Rise through the ranks of golf training in story mode
Enroll your Mii™ character in golf training in a prestigious country club and go from rookie to pro! You’ll face off against your Mushroom Kingdom classmates and earn experience points. Level up to improve your character’s stats like power, movement, and spin. You can bring your character (and their customized stats) into other modes, too!”
