Mushroom Kingdom's Most Prestigious Sports Event!

Hit The Links This Summer With Mario Golf: World Tour! Mario-golf-nintendo-3ds_zpsa7d68ebc

Mario certainly loves sports, he's played football, basketball and tennis just to name a few, and he's even competed in the Olympics with a the blue blur. One Mario sports title many people are fans of is Mario Golf and this Summer we will see a 3DS title in the series released with the title: Mario Golf: World Tour!

More details on the portable game were given during yesterday's Nintendo Direct presentation, with the main announcements involving online modes and community features.

As its name suggests, you'll be able to play the game online by connecting your 3DS to the internet. You can compete against other gamers around the world in either single exhibition matches or in massive tournaments and depending on how you do you'll pick up or lose points. The scoring system is designed so you can tee-off against people with roughly the same ability, just in case a newbie comes up against a player with the skills of Tiger Woods!

There will be a community feature, much like the one found in Mario Kart 7. This will allow you to connect and play with like-minded people or create and recruit others to communities based on particular themes.

Even though the game is titled Mario Golf: World Tour, it wont be an online only experience as you'll still be able to play local multiplayer too.

You will also be able to set special conditions for joining these matches. Satoru Iwata gave three examples: one where you play with traditional golf rules with no special shots allowed, one where you compete in short courses at certain times and you can also create a tournament where you can only play as Luigi.

There was definitely a lot of Luigi announcements in yesterday's presentation; the New Super Mario Bros. U DLC called New Super Luigi U was also further explained by Nintendo's president!

What is your favorite confirmed feature of this new Mario Golf Title? Let us hear your thoughts!
