Mario Strikers: Battle League will arrive on Nintendo Switch in June, thus marking the return of the series based on five-a-side football after 14 years of waiting. In the meantime, the Nintendo eShop has revealed well in advance the size of the download of the digital version, which fortunately are very small.

As reported by the Nintendo Switch store, Mario Strikers: Battle League weighs only 3 GB, a real featherweight even when compared with other Nintendo productions (which usually have small dimensions). Just to give an example, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate weighs 16 GB, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe weighs 6.8 GB, while Splatoon 2 3.6 GB.

Mario Strikers: Battle League, a very fierce Mario aims for the opponent door Mario Strikers: Battle League will be available from 10 June 2022 exclusively for Nintendo Switch. For those unfamiliar with the series, this is an arcade title inspired by 5-a-side football, but with no holds barred. There are no fouls or offsides and the various characters, drawn from the games from the Mario universe, are capable of performing highly spectacular super-shots.
