General information

Platform: Nintendo Wii

Developed by Square Enix

Published by Nintendo

Players: 1-4

Mario Sports mix is a sports game for the Nintendo Wii developed by Square Enix and published by Nintendo. It came out in Japan late in 2010 where it received fairly good ratings to the tone of 78% game scores. The game will be released globally by the end of February 2011. This is the third Mario title in which Square Enix have been involved in with the others being Super Mario RPG and Mario Hoops 3 on 3, surprising as Square and Nintendo seemed to have parted company indefinitely after Super Mario RPG back in the 90's.

 

This game is exactly what it says on the tin, a sports mix featuring volleyball, field and ice hockey, dodge ball and street basketball.

 

The gameplay in Mario Sports Mix provides gamers with a number of options - they can play alone, against friends, or cooperatively with friends. Up to three friends can use the cooperative mode, whereas up to four players can participate in competitive play. The gameplay will be effected by a wii remote and nunchuck - players will interact with the game in a similar way to that of Wii sports; jumping, swinging etc - we're sure it'll make you live longer! here is a little more info about the gameplay specifics from each game:-

 

Basketball

Very similar to the gameplay in Mario Hoops 3 on 3, the more coins a player gains whilst in play the more their score will increase. When in this game there is a display in the bottom left of the screen with a 24 second time limit just like the professionals would have.

Volleyball

The volleyball arenas will feature question panels on the floor giving items to players that step on them. The same coins / score system as mentioned in basketball will also still apply.


Ice Hockey

During the ice hockey you will again notice question blocks which give players items or coins to increase their score you might also notice that the puck itself is actually a coin.


Dodgeball

Teams of 2 or 3 plus either a red or blue Yoshi to help them out will battle it out launching balls, and whatever else they can get their hands on at the players on the other team until they're out. Players have a health bar and when they are hit their health will go down - when a players health has gone all the way down they'll move with your teams Yoshi to a box, and can only leave once they have hit someone - they'll then get a small amount of their health bar restored and be able to move again.

 

Mario Sports Mix includes 19 playable characters each with their own unique abilities and broken down into 5 groups for example some are faster, some more powerful, some good allround, some may have better technique and some simply have some nice tricks up their sleeves. We've done a table showing which characters belong to which skill group below.

All rounders Speed Power Tricky Technique
Mario Toad Wario Black Mage Peach
Luigi Diddy Kong Donkey Kong Moogle Daisy
Yoshi Bowser Jr Bowser Cactuar Waluigi
Ninja     Slime White Mage
Mii        

 

You'll also see obligatory appearances of popular items from the Mario universe throughout the games which are available when players touch the question mark panels these include but are not limited to Green and Red shells, Banana Peel, Mini mushroom, super star, bob-omb and gold coins.

 

 

Features:

  • The cast of Mushroom Kingdom characters get together to play sports - Mario style. While the basic rules of the games apply, each one includes some magical Mario twists like coins and special items that ramp up the craziness and fun.

  • While playing, gathering coins will build up bonus points. So when players score a point or basket, they also get the added bonus.

  • Players can also collect items to use against their opponents. For example, when the opposing team passes the basketball to each other, players can throw a Green Shell at the player to distract them while they receive the pass.

  • Each character has a signature move that's almost impossible for opponents to stop. For example, when Mario's unique special move is activated in basketball, Mario swirls into the air and dunks from anywhere on the court.

  • In the field of play, a variety of tricks will keep players on their toes. On DK Dock, the volleyball court will continually slide to the left and right. On Bowser Jr. Blvd, the basketball court has bonus circles that frequently appear, offering both positive bonuses or negative points that result in extreme point swings.

  • Play with friends and family at home or online! Up to four players can play cooperatively or competitively in two-on-two or three-on-three matches.
