Mario Sports Mix Pushes the Envelope

December 21, 2010

Mario is quite the talented tradesman. He’s been a doctor, a soccer player, a baseball player, a go-kart racer, and an evil dictator among other things. (Pretty sure I made one of those up…) Well, a new game has come along and plans to do something never thought possible. Some might even call it insane. In Mario Sports Mix, Mario will be able to play four different sports games on one disc. Players can choose from a number of characters from the Mario Bros franchise and activate special power-ups in the game as well as a unique one for each person. So essentially; Mario Kart minus the karts.


Mario Sports Mix features hockey, basketball, volleyball and dodgeball, and will be available on February 7th 2011 for the Nintendo Wii (who saw that one coming?). Check out a small gallery after the break.

John is what you might call something of a badass. When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
