Anything goes
on this pitch!

Aim for victory with teamwork, tackles, table-turning items, and score-boosting Hyper Strikes in Mario Strikers: Battle League Football on Nintendo Switch. Do whatever it takes to win in frantic local multiplayer and team up with other players online to become the world’s top club!

Introducing
Strike!

Mario and friends face off against each other in Strike, a five vs five, football-like sport without any of those pesky rules getting in the way!

The team who scores the most goals wins, but with crunching Team Tackles flying in and all sorts of items adding to the chaos (not to mention the electric fences containing the carnage), scoring is easier said than done!

Hit the back of the net with a powerful Hyper Strike though, and TWO goals are added to the tally…

The squad

Assemble a team of Mushroom Kingdom all-stars, made up of four Strikers and a goalkeeper trying to keep the ball out of your net. Each character has their own stats such as Speed, Passing and Strength, as well as the ability to unleash a game-changing Hyper Strike. Here’s how the squad lines up…

Suit up

Equipping your Strikers with different gear will not only change their look, but also tailor their attributes to suit your gameplan. Use in-game coins earned by playing matches to unlock new gear sets to don during your next fixture. Mix and match the various sets to find your ideal combination of stats and style.

Items

Pick up a ? Block during a match and you’ll receive a random item to stop your opponents in their tracks, or clear your path to goal. Here’s what’s up for grabs:

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_RedShell.png
CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_Star.png

Star

Temporarily makes the Striker invincible, boosts their stats, and ensures any opponent who gets physical is roundly rebounded.

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_GreenShell.png

Green Shell

A Green Shell cannoning around the pitch will keep everyone on their toes (or put them on their behind).

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_Banana.png

Banana

A well-placed slippy banana skin is an excellent way to stop a marauding Striker in their tracks.

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_Mushroom.png

Mushroom

Use this handy power-up for a brief speed boost that could be the difference between a successful dribble and an unplanned meeting with the electric fence.

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_BobOmb.png

Bob-omb

Nothing says “actually, that’s my ball” like an explosive lobbed in the direction of an opposing Striker.

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_AW_Items_RedShell.png

Red Shell

Nothing comes between the Red Shell and its target, not even other Strikers.

Teamwork

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_Screen_Teamwork_01.jpg

Up to eight friends can take to the field together, either around the TV on one Nintendo Switch console*, via local wireless*, or online**.

CI_NSwitch_MarioStrikersBLF_Screen_Teamwork_02.jpg

Of course, working with your teammates will be the key to victory. Utilise manual passes to play the ball into space and create scoring opportunities, or launch a teammate into opposing players with a sneaky Team Tackle and steal the ball right off their toes.
