After 7 long years, we are finally getting a new Mario Golf game! And even better, it will be for a Nintendo console. Mario Golf: Super Rush was announced earlier this year, and it was a huge surprise to fans of the franchise. And it will be released for the Nintendo Switch on June 25th. The game looks amazing, it presents various modes that can be played, and overall looks like it will be a lot of fun.
Nintendo has had a long tradition with creating sport titles with their characters. They have already experimented with gold in Mario Golf: World Tour that was released only for the 3DS, and before that, Mario Golf: Advance Tour was released only for the GameBoy Advanced. Expectation around Mario Golf: Super Rush have grown given Nintendo’s tradition, and excellence with games of the genre.
Hole in One!
The objective of the game is simple, choose a character of your choice, and battle against the AI and friends to see who can get the ball in the hole in fewer swings, and there are plenty of different courses that can be chosen, and each of them has unique traits to them to further increase the challenge. Each character has his unique ability that can be used to help you achieve your goal. Use all different kinds of clubs to shoot more precisely, and fill up your special bar to use the character Super Star Strike, and it is unique to each character.
It is always important to be aware of the terrain and to always keep an eye on the wind, to better prepare for each strike. So use your map to see the course, and plan just how you want to play. If you want to make the experience feel even more real, you can use the motion control to feel like you are golfing, and if that’s not the case, do not worry as you can still sit on the couch and play with your controller.
For beginners, the game has a single-player campaign mode, where you create your golf player, and explore different maps and play different courses to further gain experience. As you level up, you will make your stats go higher, and also get access to more courses, and different items to buy, they go from clothes to customize your characters, to different kinds of clubs that you can use. The character that you create in the campaign can also be used in multiplayer. When playing locally or online, you can choose from sixteen different characters from Mario games.
Play with three other people in three different game modes, Standard Golf, where you take turns with the others to see who can get the lowest score, Speed Golf in which everyone plays simultaneously, and Battle Golf, a mode where there are plenty of obstacles, and players must race against each other to see who can sink their balls in the hole and close it off, or if single player is your thing, there are also two modes exclusively for that, Solo Challenge, a mode where you can further improve your techniques, and Golf Adventure, where your Mii character traits in a golf club and rises through the ranks.
For fans of the Mario Golf franchise, Super Rush looks like it is going to be the best one yet. Nintendo never fails to deliver amazing and fun Mario games, and it has been a long time since we got a golfing one. It will be an amazing experience to play with friends and family, and now, you can even challenge other players online.
So if you were a huge fan of the older games, Mario Golf: Super Rush will deliver the fun you have been waiting for.
