One of the shining details we received from this new trailer was the full cast of characters that players will be able to play when the game release. Before, we only knew of the standard Mario characters such as Luigi and Peach would be in the game.

Another aspect of these characters is that they all have their own unique special moves that players will be able to use on the course. These moves are unique to each character, but we do not know all of them as of now.

Along with the special moves, each character also has dedicated stamina, control, power, speed, and spin metrics that will vary from character to character. As one would guess, Bowser has a significantly higher power rating than Mario. Below is a full list of all characters in Mario Golf Super Rush, along with the special moves we know right now.

New game modes

Towards the latter portion of the new gameplay trailer, we also got a closer look at some of the game modes players will be able to check out. Among these modes includes further detail into the single-player adventure we will be able to journey on.

Let’s run over some of the game modes that will be within Mario Golf Super Rush.

Battle Golf

This game mode is a simple one, and it is basically a condensed version of a regular golf game. Players will battle it out over nine holes, and the first player to win three holes wins it all!

Speed Golf

The more frantic game mode that will be in Mario Golf Super Rush, Speed Golf is all about, you guessed it, speed. Players will have to race after each shot with their player, taking advantage of the character’s stamina rating.

The ultimate goal is to be the first player to finish the hole, and along the way, you can collect certain items over the course that will regenerate your stamina and increase your speed. Golfers will also be able to use special speed dashes, which should gain the upper hand over some slower characters.

Golf Adventure
