All Articles: Mario Sports Superstars

New Retail Releases: Mass Effect Andromeda, Mario Sports Superstars, Zero Escape The Nonary Games, More

Venture into new worlds with this week’s new retail releases…

BioWare will help Mass Effect fans explore the unexplored this week thanks to the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Leaving behind the rest of the universe, players will visit the Andromeda galaxy and discover “rich, alien worlds in the search for humanity’s new home.”

Mario and friends will also get to try new things this week in the biggest “Mario Sports” game ever. Coming to the 3DS on Friday, Mario Sports Superstars will include Mario-themed versions of baseball, golf, tennis, horse racing, and soccer. The game will also feature support for a new line of Amiibo Cards that’ll power up your favorite athlete in the Mushroom Kingdom.

Oculus VR owners will be able to become a different kind of superstar this week with the release of Rock Band VR. Harmonix’s latest rhythm game will offer “unprecedented stage presence” in virtual reality and a brand new soundtrack.

But if you’re worried about stage fright and would much prefer to battle giant beasts, Koei Tecmo and Omega Force will release Toukiden 2 for the PS4 and Vita. And if you’d rather explore a more familiar world, Aksys Games will bundle together Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward for the PS4 and Vita in Zero Escape: The Nonary Games.

You can find even more new releases after the break. (more…)

Two new Mario Sports Superstars trailers now available ahead of March 24 launch

Mario Sports Superstars will be released for the 3DS in North America beginning next week, which makes now the perfect time for Nintendo to release two new trailers for the multi-sport package.

Nintendo of America has decided to focus on the “5 Sports in 1 Game” aspect of Mario Sports Superstars, and their trailer highlights the Mushroom Kingdom’s obsession with soccer, baseball, tennis, horse racing, and golf.

Meanwhile, Mario Sports Superstars is already available in the UK and Australia, so Nintendo UK produced a “Launch Trailer” that features more gameplay footage, as well as a look at extra capabilities that can only be unlocked by a new series of Amiibo Cards.

Both trailers for Mario Sports Superstars can be found after the break. (more…)

Mario Sports Superstars will be released for the 3DS on March 24

Even though the Switch’s March 3rd launch is right around the corner, Nintendo has no plans to forget about the 3DS in 2017. The consolemaker announced today that Mario Sports Superstars, the next sports compilation featuring the plumber and his pals, will be released for the 3DS on March 24.

The action-packed game launches on March 24 and offers five full-featured sports like Soccer, Tennis, Golf, Baseball and, for the first time in a Mario sports game, Horse Racing. Each sport stars Mario and his friends (and enemies!) from the Mushroom Kingdom and can be played in local or online multiplayer modes.

Nintendo also revealed that a new series of Amiibo Cards will be released alongside Super Mario Superstars. The randomly-sorted five-card packs will retail for $4.99, and each copy of the game will include one Amiibo Card packed in.
