Mario Strikers: Battle League’s Hyper Strikes Explained

The last few years have been great for Super Mario spinoff games. The Switch has two different Mario Party games to its name, and Mario Golf: Super Rush brought a longtime favorite Mario Sports title back after a hiatus of a few years. Soon, the trend will continue with the help of Mario Strikers: Battle League, a long overdue heir to the beloved Mario Strikers titles from the mid-2000s. In many ways, Mario Strikers: Battle League seems to preserve the mechanics that defined the first two games in the series, but it does make clear efforts to upgrade Mario Strikers hallmarks.
