Mario Sports Mix has a feature not found in the two Wii Sports games. No, we’re not talking about including Toad as a playable character. He is in there, though. We’re talking about online play.
Mario Sports Mix lets two consoles connect for online hockey, basketball, volleyball, and dodgeball. Each console can support up to two players online, so it’s possible to have a roommate vs. roommate digital dodgeball exhibition match.
While Mario and his friends are the stars of this Wii game we wouldn’t be surprised if some Final Fantasy characters snuck into the game. The character lineup has seven blank spots and most of the Mushroom Kingdom regulars are accounted for. Plus, Mario Hoops 3-on-3, another Square Enix developed Mario sports game, had ninjas and moogles dunking over Mario.
Mario Sports Mix comes out in Japan on November 25 and is slated for release next year in North America.
