Platform: Nintendo Switch

It wouldn’t be a Nintendo console without Mario’s sports vacations, and we’ve seen enough of them on Switch. Golf, tennis and the Olympics may be the famous plumber’s usual picks, but occasionally we find him in lesser-known territory. It’s been 15 years since he last took to the football field, but finally Nintendo returned to the beautiful game with Mario Strikers: Battle League Football.

Bringing back the original developers, Next Level Games, Battle League is a familiar pleasure. However, it comes with a few changes. Some of that comes down to numbers – there are fewer playable characters and you can’t score six goals at once, which is a bit of a joke. Crucially, though, what we have feels more refined and skilled, and it’s a ton of fun with friends.

First, forget about formation tactics. This is 5v5, so you’ll be learning about each character’s unique stats instead. For example, Bowser has powerful attacks and hard tackles, Toad is quick and great to pass, and Luigi is your classic ‘all-rounder’. It’s worth reviewing your picks, and you can pick anyone on your team except the goalkeeper, Boom Boom. You are trying to argue about positions with a personified red scale.
