Mario Sports Mix Coming to Wii in February 2011

If you've been waiting for Nintendo to release more sports game starring Mario and his chums, you'll be pleased to hear your wait is almost at an end, as it was announced today that Mario Sports Mix's launch on Wii is scheduled for February 7, 2011.


Mario Sports Mix packs hockey, basketball, volleyball and dodgeball games in a variety of exotic environments, some of which will affect the game. As ever, there are power-ups such as green shells, banana peels and all that gubbins to mess with opponents.

Shacknews sent a roving reporter to play a little at E3 this year, who found it enjoyable but was uncertain whether it'd have the depth of Mario's standalone sports outings.
