Square Enix’s Next Wii Game Is Mario Sports Mix


Mario Sports Mix marks the third time Square Enix have worked on a game starring Nintendo’s mascot. The first, of course, was Super Mario RPG. The second was Mario Hoops 3-on-3, a basketball game starring Mario and Final Fantasy characters, for the Nintendo DS.


Sports Mix, while it’s closer to 3-on-3 in terms of genre, is more diverse. So far, we’ve already seen basketball, volleyball and hockey in the game. Whether or not there are more sports in Sports Mix remains to be seen.
