Ahead of the Mario Golf: Super Rush release date, Nintendo shared a new trailer highlighting the game's modes and the full roster of 16 Mario Golf: Super Rush characters. The new Mario Golf trailer also introduces new modes and shines more light on Speed Golf.
Here is the list of Mario Golf: Super Rush characters:
- Donkey Kong
- Bowser Jr
- Chargin ‘Chuck
- Roi Bob-Omb
Each has a special power and different specialties, for example strength or endurance.
Mario Golf Super Rush has six courses in total, although there seems to be a lot of variation with each course. The weather changes in the basic forest course, for example, and at least part of the Bowser's Castle-themed course takes place on lava flows outside the castle.
Challenges featuring classic Mario enemies such as Pokeys, along with the ability to control spin and other factors affecting the ball, make this more than your average golf game.
If normal golf isn't your thing, however, Speed Golf injects Super Rush with signature Mario whimsy and no shortage of special powers. Up to four players race to put their ball in the hole first, unleashing special dashes and power shots to crush opponents in the process.
Battle Golf is a new Mario Golf Super Rush mode that raises the stakes in Speed Golf. Here you'll need to capture three of the nine holes to win, but the course is smaller and full of obstacles standing in your way.
Story Mode (finally) sees the return of the single-player adventure of the old Mario Golf games, where your Mii character learns golf from the Kingdom's brightest stars. Learned abilities also carry over to the game's multiplayer mode.
Speaking of multiplayer Mario Golf: Super Rush, you can play with up to three other players locally and online. Mario Golf: Super Rush releases June 25 on Nintendo Switch.
