Nintendo is finally bringing golf back into their sports line-up! It has been a cold winter for Mario Golf fans, what with the last title released being Mario Golf: Advance Tour in 2004. It's been almost ten years since the last Mario Golf title! Sure, the classic N64 Mario Golf was released on 3DS, but that doesn't hold a candle to the newly announced Mario Golf: World Tour. Expect Nintendo latest and greatest sports title this summer on the 3DS.
President Iwata didn't really go into detail on Mario Golf: World Tour, beyond mentioning it was part of Nintendo's Year of Luigi event. Quite deservingly too, as Luigi has very smooth drives. What more do you really need to know, though? The game has Mario and his pals shooting 18 on the finest courses Mushroom Kingdom has to offer. Check out the screenshots below to see for yourself.
Mario Golf: World Tour is planned for release exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS this summer. I'm not sure what I'll do in the mean time. Play a round of real golf, you say? Pfah! Real golf is boring. Mario Golf is more real. The realist. So real it's no longer boring and instead the best thing ever created. Get hyped!
