Mario Strikers Charged for the Wii turns eight years old

Daisy has been waiting too long for a rematch

Daisy may be a Princess, but she carries herself knowing full well that she can completely dominate a heated soccer match against any challenger.

Rare is the Super Mario game that earns anything higher than the all inclusive E rating from the ESRB. It's been eight years since Next Level Games was able to accomplish such a daring task with the Wii title Mario Strikers Charged. Unlike the friendly rounds of golf and tennis the Mario party take part in, soccer in the Mushroom Kingdom is an unbelievably competitive experience. The intensity of the Strikers series is on par with the all out brawls of the Super Smash Bros.

The developers at Next Level Games' most recent release was the well received Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon for the 3DS. I hope that Next Level Games will get the chance to return to their sports game roots sometime in the near future, preferably with another soccer tournament involving the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom, especially in a world with the Nintendo expanding DLC of Mario Kart 8.

Link leading a team of Stalfos with an octorok goalie fending off Bowser and his crew of dry bones? I'll pre-order that right now.

Remix of "Road to the Striker Cup" from Mario Strikers Charged (Football). A really awesome game!
