In Europe, Nintendo will release a sequel to the 2005 Gamecube classic Super Mario Strikers. Mario Strikers: Charged Football is a five on five, all out, soccer face-off complete with Nintendo’s stable of unique characters, power ups and special items. More than that, it will be the first Wii game to allow players to take the competitive action online.
Teams will be made up of five players, two of which can be controlled by humans and each team will have a leader with access to super abilities (for example, Princess Peach can freeze the competition for while by whipping out a camera and taking a snapshot and Mario can grow to mammoth proportions). The matches will be competitive and will include plenty of dirty fouls. However, each time a player is fouled they will be given special items (like red turtle shells) to serve up some pay back to the opposing team.
The game will have several modes including "Road to Striker Cup," a single player mode where footballers compete in seventeen stadiums for three cups, "Domination" mode where players can take on their friends in a quick round of football fun and there will be ranked and unranked online matches.
Mario Strikers: Charged Football is expected to retail in Europe for 50 Euros or £35.
