Nintendo has confirmed that there will be free updates for Mario Golf: Super Rush during E3 2021 Nintendo Direct.
Mario and friends return to classic golf action with a few Super Mario twists. In addition to standard golf games, players can also take part in speed golf; where all players must run first to sink their ball and use power ups along the way to get their balls or themselves onto the court.
Battle Golf combines speed golf with a special arena with nine holes to be claimed. The first player to capture three flags wins. Player Miis can also be played in Golf Adventure; an RPG adventure to learn the basics of golf, master missions and boss fights. As players level up, they can invest in their stats to determine their style of play.
Players can compete against each other locally or online with up to four players, with 17 characters to choose from – including your Mii. The new trailer confirms that new characters and courses will be available via free updates. At least one of these new courses seems to be based on New Donk City from Super Mario Odyssey.
You can find the trailer for E3 2021 below (via Nintendo Direct at 5:05 p.m.) as well as gameplay and discussion from Nintendo Treehouse.
Mario Golf Super Rush is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 25th. The full overview (via Nintendo) can be found below.
