Mario has always been a bit of a sportsman. Which kind of defies his portly figure really, but he’s taken part in quite a few activities all the same. Football, baseball, tennis, golf… in fact, there isn’t a lot that the Nintendo mascot hasn’t done. Mario Sports Mix on the Wii aims to check almost every other outdoor activity off the list, in a move that seems a bit like fast-tracking the things to do before you die.

These four games are guaranteed to provide hours of fun with friends though - volleyball, basketball, ice hockey and dodgeball have all been given Super Mario-themed twists and settings to make it all a little less boring. As you would expect from past Mario sports titles the rules of each game largely remains the same, but in Mario’s world you can collect coins to build up bonus points, use Koopa shells to attack your opponents and use other iconic special items to mix the action up a little bit.

That’s to say nothing of the signature moves that each character has. From Luigi to Yoshi and everyone inbetween, if they get riled enough to use one of these special attacks, you can be sure that you’re not stopping them. And then you have the environments - DK Dock will make the volleyball court slide from left to right, while Bowser Jr Blvd’s basketball court feature bonus circles that offer good (and bad) rewards.

With co-operative modes for up to four players and competitive two-on-two matchups, Mario Sports Mix is going to be the ultimate in Mushroom Kingdom Sports Entertainment.
