So, i got my kids a switch and while i am not much for the whole "kidy thing" i of course do get some of it, however.. Last night i was scrolling through FB when I saw something for Mario Tennis when it hit me! WTF ever happened to Strikers? It was like, the best game ever!!! Its been so long since i owned that GC i completely forgot about that amazing "futball" game. I remembered Peach was the one i use to pick all the time and now all i want to do is find a way to play that damn game again.

Anyone know if this title is in demand for a switch port? I can't be the only guy in the world who desperately is craving Mario Strikers.

Also, other then MK8 does this switch system have any other ridiculously fun Mario sports games? I ask because lately, usually around 12:30/1:00 am I stop PC gaming and pick up the switch and play a few MK8 matches at my desk in portable mode ( so convenient ) before going to bed, but for now.. NOW? Now, i must find God, I must find Strikers. Thank you :p

You're not the first person to ask about a new Strikers game. I haven't heard of anything coming, though. Mario Party is coming at least.

I loved that game on the Wii.

Oh s*** I remember having a Mario Party on GC too, it had some kind of microphone.. Me and my wife would play it all the time, i think i remember a cruse ship.

Good to know! Is it known if its a "new" or old port like MK8 from wiiU?

It's a brand new one for Switch. You can check out the cheese-tastic commercial for it; it's more a commecial for the Switch itself, but, it does highlight how the game has some unique features that only a Switch (or multiple Switch's) could perform.

Oh, that looks drunk fun, here's hoping we don't need two switches just for 4pyr mode.

Honestly if the switch had more first party games I would prioritize getting one. But with Metroid Prime 4 having been announced a whike ago, And Mario Kart being something that I used to love, I may get ome around Christmas depending on my financial situation. I am not a big fan of phone gaming, And while I do find Fortnite more fun on the phone then PC(Mainly because if I am on PC there are usually other games I would rather play) The controls are what kills it for me. So a switch is something I wamt, Amd having a Mario strikers game would be awesome, Along with all the other first parts ganes.

Dtwenty submitter 1 point 4 months ago

I remember seeing that game for the first time and thinking, "if we ever end up with one of these systems im buying that game"

Super Mario Sluggers is better prove me wrong

Dtwenty submitter 1 point 4 months ago

I can't because when combined "proof" and "opinions" only create an oxymoron, so technically you pitched me a bull**** question lol :) However i have never played one. Any new Sluggers coming to Switch? For whatever reason i am looking for arcade sport games that don't suck and are more "modern" aka "newer".

Memo1010 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

lol, I never actually played Strikers but loved sluggers as a kid, to my knowledge they aren't making a new strikers or sluggers but I would consider buying the sluggers game if it looked good (but not strikers cause I hate soccer lol)

Dtwenty submitter 1 point 4 months ago

I hate all sports but love them as games, go figure?
