Mario Golf: Super Rush is an upcoming installment in the Mario Golf series, set to be the sixth installment overall in the series.[10] First announced during a Nintendo Direct broadcast on February 17, 2021, the game will be released for the Nintendo Switch on June 25, 2021. The game introduces a variety of features, including several modes with new features such as Speed Golf, as well as a Story Mode involving Miis.[11]

Gameplay

The core gameplay follows the rules of golf: to hit the ball into the hole in the fewest number of strokes. Both sand traps and water hazards appear as obstacles depending on the course. The hole can be seen from afar by a glowing, blue pillar of light.

While preparing for a swing, the player can switch between available golf clubs and can view both the entire course from a bird's-eye view or scan the terrain ahead. The player can press Minus Button to see more information on their currently-selected club.[12] The bird's-eye view allows the player to see their current location, the hole, and a circle surrounding the player indicating their current club's yardage. Scanning shows the elevation and distance to the hole, as well as a cross-section view of the terrain slope. Pressing Single Joy-Con Right Button allows the player to set their aim while pressing Single Joy-Con Left Button resets the camera view.[12] An alternative scan, activated by pressing R Button, allows the player to view the estimated landing zone from a higher point of view, showing the slope lines of the landing zone.[11] Additional information such as the hole number, par number, total hole yardage, and wind speed and direction are all visible in the top-left corner. The hole is indicated by a tall blue pillar of light as well as a flag icon in the UI with arrows pointing to the hole.[12] The player's current score and stroke number are also presented above their special shot gauge; normally yellow with a golf ball icon at the end, it is seen filling up in blue, with the ball becoming fiery, after sinking the ball into the hole.[11] When the gauge is full, the player will be prompted to use their special shot as the L Button icon will flash below the gauge.[13] There is also a mini-map showing the entire hole.

The shot gauge is now vertical, and bends to indicate how the shot trajectory will be affected by slopes. The green and hole are indicated on the shot gauge by checkered tiling and the flag, respectively. The player can press Single Joy-Con Right Button to initiate a shot or L Button for a special shot, when their special shot gauge is full. Pressing Single Joy-Con Left Button allows the player to set a shot type, including standard shot and half shot.[12] While a standard shot is being set, the player can use Left Stick to shape the shot, curving its trajectory, and they can also apply spin to the shot, including standard spin and super backspin.[12] After a shot is taken, the side-view trajectory of the shot is displayed in yellow, with the air distance displayed in yellow and rolling distance displayed in blue. The hole can also be seen in this diagram, indicated by a flag icon. While the ball is moving, the player can hold Single Joy-Con Bottom Button to fast-forward its motion.[12] Both button controls and motion controls may be used.[11] For motion controls, the player will need to hold SR Button while swinging the Joy-Con.[12] Characters can also be made lefties.[11]

In Speed Golf, players take shots at the same time and must race to their ball after each stroke, continuing this until it is put into the hole. Items along the way may help the player. Players also have access to character-specific skills such as dashes and special shots[14], and are seen dropping coins onto the course when being hit or when running into obstacles; losing coins appears to decrease the player's special shot gauge, while collecting coins increases it.[12] Both the player's stroke number and total time are recorded as their score.[11] While running, players have a stamina gauge near their character that is normally green but turns red when low.[12] The stamina gauge can be replenished by collecting hearts. Using a special dash immediately uses up a portion of the stamina gauge.[12]

In Battle Golf, four players compete in a stadium filled with nine holes and a number of obstacles to be the first player to sink three holes.[12] In the stadium, players can collect coins and can even launch Bob-ombs with their golf club to damage their opponents.

In Golf Adventure, the player plays as their Mii. Starting with a basic amount of experience, the player can earn experience points by participating in practices and matches[14]. Doing so grants the player skill points that can be used to upgrade their stats, such as Power (how far the ball can be driven), Stamina (how long the player can dash), Speed (how fast the player can run), Control (how straight the player can hit the ball), and Spin (how much the player can spin/shape shots), while experience points upgrade their level and overall Lead Rank. In the overworld, the player can interact with several characters, such as Goomba and Hammer Bro, who may provide the player with challenges.[11] There will also be matches against the playable characters and boss fights.[12] The player will also be able to collect coins.[15] By winning tournaments, players will be able to obtain new clubs and outfits.[16]

Characters

Playable

There is a total of 16 playable characters in the base game; more characters are planned to be added post-launch[17]. Pauline, Chargin' Chuck, and King Bob-omb are playable for the first time in the series. When selecting a character, players have the option to change their club set or dominant hand.

Much like Mario Tennis Aces and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, certain characters wear specific golfing outfits.[11] They also now carry their golf bag when moving on the course during Speed Golf.

Mii characters are also playable, with variable statistics. A Pink Yoshi also appears.[11]
