Mario Strikers: Battle League was a pretty fun Nintendo sports title that came out during this year’s recent summer slate of games. It allowed us to return to the pitch with Mushroom Kingdom characters and engage in intense 4v4 soccer matches, and the roster of characters we can mix into our squads is about to increase. Nintendo announced the second free update for the game and it’s coming to the Switch sometime during this September.
Nintendo announced the Mario Strikers: Battle League 2nd free update during the Nintendo Direct on September 13, 2022. It will bring Pauline, Diddy Kong, a new stadium, and new gear to the game sometime this September. No specific date was given just yet. However, we got some details on the content. Pauline will be a power player, throwing her bravado fully into her game to floor her opponents in musical style. Meanwhile, the nimble Diddy Kong will bring the speed from the Kong family.

Pauline and Diddy Kong will join the roster, and players will also get to enjoy the Barrel Set of Gear, built to boost speed and shooting. Players will also be able to throw down in the new Planetoid Stadium, featuring galactic fanfare. All of this will be free, much like the previous update that brought Daisy, Shy Guy, and other fun content, and it will be coming sometime before the end of September 2022.
Mario Strikers: Battle League was a pretty fun summer sports romp for the Mario franchise. If you’re still playing the pitch, then get ready for it to spice up when the second free update hits with Pauline and Diddy Kong this month.
