Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Mario Strikers: Battle League is the grand return of the most grittiest Mario sub-series after a 15-year hiatus, bringing the series into crisp HD technology with new gameplay mechanics and a seasonal club mode. It is the last game to feature Charles Martinet as the voice of Wario, prior to his retirement from voicing Mario characters.

To do:

Revisional Differences


  • Additional Content
    • Added Daisy and Shy Guy as playable characters.
    • Added the Desert Ruin stadium.
    • Added the Knight gear set.
  • Added Features
    • Increased how many items can be displayed in the Notifications ticker in Strikers Club.
    • When choosing "Random" on the Character Selection screen, the geared version of the character will be selected (if one exists).
  • General
    • Reduced the probability of scoring on a weak shot from far away.
    • Reduced the probability of Stars appearing when you are losing by a 1- or 2-point difference.
    • Revised the CPU behavior and opposing team composition in Cup Battles.
    • Added visible trail to the ball when it’s not in active possession, making it easier to see.
    • Made player numbers easier to see when playing online.
    • Fixed an issue when playing as Waluigi and using a hyper strike in which the ball could hit a goal post and not go in.
    • Made several other adjustments to game balance and fixed several other issues to improve the gameplay experience (see below).

The "other adjustments to game balance and several other issues" are:

  • The menus and presentation are more stabilized, being more smooth and less consuming on framerate (i.e. Donkey Kong's goal animations and the Cup Battles menu).
  • The Technique stat had its stats lowered to be less impactful.
  • Peach's Hyper Strike now has unique voice clips for every character when they get infected by it.
  • The match results screen now has the numbers and the light from the winning team move instead of just a static image.

Glitch Oddity

This update introduced a new glitch involving Boom Boom, known as the "Death Lob" by the community. This glitch has you do a free pass right over him to the goal while a teammate is in front of you. When said teammate immediately dodges, Boom Boom keeps moving back and forth, not stopping the ball. This method consistently gives you goals and was game-breaking, but fortunately...

Quietly released about a month after the previous update. The only change is that the Death Lob glitch is fixed.

Regional and Version Differences

US Europe/Australia First Kick

  • As with Mario Strikers Charged, "Football" is added to the European/Australian version's title.
  • The First Kick demo had a unique subtitle card of its own, and was thusly put on the title screen.
