The Australian Classification Board has revealed that Camelot and Bandai Namco Studios are behind Mario Sports Superstars.
The Nintendo 3DS exclusive was announced in last week’s Nintendo Direct, a compilation with five full-scale sports in Football, Baseball, Tennis, Golf and Horse Racing. Players will be able to take part in multiple Cups for each sport within the single-player Tournament mode, with the game to support both local and online multiplayer.
Camelot Software Planning will be a name familiar to most, thanks in part to their successes with the Golden Sun, Mario Golf, and Mario Tennis series. However, Wii U exclusive Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash was a sour note on their otherwise relatively consistent record.
Whereas Bandai Namco Studios have become a multi-faceted development team who Nintendo has called on to help with games such as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, Pokkén Tournament, and Wii Sports Club.
Mario Sports Superstars will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in spring 2017.
