Mario Strikers: Battle League is getting a major update on 21-22 July 2022 that will add two fan-favourite characters into the action: Shy Guy, and Princess Daisy. Both will be free for all players, and should spice up gameplay in different ways.
Daisy appears to be a technique specialist with fast feet and a gnarly tackle. Her hyper strike is flower-themed, and makes everyone in a select area twirl into the air before dropping, and becoming dizzy.
Shy Guy is a balanced combatant with a sense of style and grace. Their hyper strike is a tornado whirlwind that sends the ball directly into the goal posts.
In addition to these characters, the new update for Mario Strikers: Battle League will also add in a new ‘Knight’ gear type, and the ‘Desert Ruin’ stadium, which has multiple tiers to unlock.
