The update launches on July 21 and updates the game with new characters, a stadium, and other features. \n \nMario Strikers: Battle League a free update will be available starting on July 22 that adds a variety of new elements to the game, including the new playable characters Daisy and Shy Guy, a new set of clothing with a knight motif, and the new Desert Ruin stadium. \n \nDaisy and Shy Guy will join the cast as the first two new playable characters. Shy Guy is a very healthy character who can be adjusted as desired with gear, while the princess has a high technique stat that shields her from being knocked down by enemies. \n \nAdditionally, you may dress them in brand-new Knight-themed gear, prominently displayed in the update video. Strength and shooting stats are boosted by knight armor at the expense of other stats. Finally, a brand-new Desert Ruin stadium will be available, and you can choose it as your club stadium. \n \nThis year, continuing support isn't just being provided for Mario Strikers, the lone Switch game. As part of the Booster Course Pass, Nintendo will also release extra tracks for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. In addition, five other tunes are expected to be released through the end of 2023 after the initial wave arrived back in March. \n \nIn our assessment of Mario Strikers: Battle League, we found that the mechanics are pretty intricate and nuanced but that it might benefit from adding more modes and activities: \n \nThere isn't a lot of variation in Mario Strikers: Battle League's game modes and available settings. However, it is more technically difficult than many Mario sports games, which might give it a chance with devoted players. \n \nThere isn't much more to sports than competing against opponents to demonstrate your expertise, so that will have to do." \n \nThe Nintendo Switch is the only platform for which Mario Strikers: Battle League is currently available.
