The GameXplain folks were privy to a Zoom-based preview event. I wanted to share that video here with you all.
It's quite promising and I am really excited for this one. We're only three weeks away now!
However I find that the lack of Mario-themed courses to be incredibly disappointing. I've dreamed ever since Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour that they would take the concept found within Peach's Castle Grounds and expand it to the whole game. Imagine a Mario Golf game where each world revolved around the aesthetic of each Super Mario Bros. 3 world. It would be incredible and it would work so well with the Mario Golf genre.
Yet,... this appears not to do that. Sure, we've seen Pokeys in the desert. Maybe there's more to that kind of thing. However I doubt we'll be looking to bank our shots into giant warp pipes in this entry. I hope to eat my words.
Plus, why hasn't mini-golf made a return? Man that was fun in the original. They could make a whole game of Mini golf challenges and I'd probably buy it.
