Having already added two playable characters (and other content) with its first free update in July, Mario Strikers: Battle League is set to add more for players. The game’s second free update will add two more characters to the game with Pauline, who is a “physical powerhouse” with fast movement and strong tackles, and Diddy Kong, who is a “midfield speedster” with dazzling techniques and high passing accuracy.
Mario Strikers: Battle League’s sparse content offerings at launch drew quite a bit of criticism, but clearly, Next Level Games and Nintendo’s football title is following the same post-launch path as other recent Mario sports releases.
Mario Strikers: Battle League is available on Nintendo Switch.
Its second free update arrives sometime this month.
