Test 10 characters, learn the controls, and finally play online with this demo of the latest Mario soccer game.
Mario Strikers: Battle League, the first game in 15 years in the Mario soccer series, is now free to try with a demo available on the Nintendo Switch online store. This new demo will allow players to test the online mode, which is available in 6 1-hour intervals between June 3 and 5. However, the demo is available today and can be downloaded until June 5th.
The currently available mode is a game mode designed to train on your own and get used to playing soccer in the Mario world. So players can practice as much as they want before testing their skills online against other players.
Online matches will see two teams go head-to-head, with a matchmaking system as well as the ability to play against friends by invitation. Nintendo states that players who try out the demo will be able to play with all 10 characters that will be available at launch. Players will be able to get used to it and build the team they like right from the start.
