Mario Golf Super Rush was one of many games announced during the Nintendo Direct event on February 17th.
Mario Golf Super Rush will be just the third game in the series with the last Mario Golf Toadstool Tour being released 18 long years ago in 2003. The game is set to release on June 25th for the Nintendo Switch and will bring several new features to the series. All your familiar favorites from Mario will be there, Mario himself, of course, Luigi, Peach, Toad, and plenty more.
Interestingly Mario Golf Super Rush will be the first Mario Golf game to be played with motion controls. Those motion controls will come in the form of the Nintendo Joy-Cons. Similar to the Wii players will swing the Joy-Cons like you would a real golf club.
Mario Golf Super Rush will also feature two new game modes, Speed Rush mode and a full Story mode. Speed Rush mode will pit players against each other by making them run across the golf course in-between shots. All players will tee off at the same time and will race across the course to see who can finish first. There is a catch though, while running across the course players will have the ability to pick up power ups to try and help them gain an advantage.
The Story mode will feature experience points to gain levels and an ability to play as your custom Mii character. I’m very interested to see how leveling up with effect the game. Players will also be able to jump into online play with their Mii character as well. It has been a while since we’ve gotten a Mario Golf game and I am interested to see how it will play with the new motion controls. Plus with the game coming out June 25th we don’t even have to wait that long.
