Mario Strikers: Battle League is being developed by Next Level Games, the studio behind the original game released for the GameCube.
Nintendo doesn’t mention who’s behind the new Mario soccer game when it was revealed transparent a packaged Nintendo Direct in early February, prompting fans to speculate whether the original developer would return after more than a decade.
Next Level Games was the only developer working on the Mario Strikers series of games, launching the original game in 2005 and its sequel, Mario Strikers Charged, for the Wii in 2007. However, it worked. on several other Nintendo games since, including Punch-Out!! on Wii, Metroid Prime: The Force Link on 3DSand Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Switch.
Nintendo acquires Next Level Games in January 2021 to make development more efficient and of course, to make sure it only works on Nintendo games going forward.
The sale has paid off, as Mario Strikers: Battle League is coming to the Nintendo Switch on June 10 of this year.
IGN Says Mario Strikers Charged Is “Amazing” and “a deeply satisfying, wildly entertaining title”. However, for a more in-depth look at the Next Level Game, we said in 2019 “Luigi’s Mansion 3 so fun, so captivating, and so cleverly designed that, in the future, I really hope we get more than three of these games every 20 years. “
