Bowser's Fury trick nets you easy power-ups

Power up your power-ups

Bowser's Fury mode lets you bank multiple power-ups for use whenever you want, and a trick has been discovered to snag multiple power-ups quickly. All you have to do is find one of the red trampolines in the game and ground pound it. You gain a power-up for every 100 coins you get, and ground-pounding a trampoline makes a long string of coins appear every time. If you stick with it, you can get a new power-up roughly every 10 seconds!

Nintendo shares a detailed breakdown of Mario Golf: Super Rush

What a rush!

Mario Golf: Super Rush was announced for Switch yesterday, and it looks to be everything longtime series fans and newcomers could want. Online play, story mode, new features, and much more are jam-packed into this one. For an official recap on what was revealed yesterday, check out the press release below.

In the latest Nintendo Direct, we announced the newest installment of the Mario Golf series, Mario Golf: Super Rush. Let’s take a look at some of the information shared.

The Mario Golf series delivers a full-fledged golf experience. Observe the wind and terrain, take aim, and hit the ball!

With simple controls and an intuitive shot gauge on the right side of the screen, you can hit shots that would be extremely difficult on an actual golf course.

Mushroom Kingdom characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Bowser are a staple of the Mario Golf series. Some characters have more power, while others may have better control—use these attributes to your advantage for some golf super play.

The Mario Golf: Super Rush game has familiar elements like the ones mentioned above, but there are also some additions. Let’s take a look.

Speed Golf

Compete to finish the hole in the quickest time in Speed Golf. Everyone tees off at the same time, then you must run through the course to hit the ball again. Then chase the ball again and hit your next shot! Repeat and aim to finish the hole as fast as possible with the fewest hits—it’s called Speed Golf for a reason.

In Speed Golf, not only do you have to read the wind and terrain like in regular golf, but you must also think on the fly. Strategically use dashes to outrun your opponents or use special shots to sabotage them.

Story mode

In story mode, your MiiTM character takes on the role of a novice golfer who must train and compete with Mushroom Kingdom characters to rise in the ranks. Improve your skills and level up with experience points earned through practices and matches. Then, allocate points to improve your golfer’s stats.

What else can you do with your developing Mii golfer and golf expertise? Use your Mii character from story mode in other modes and compete with others.

Motion Controls

This game supports both button and motion controls. With motion controls, hold the Joy-Con™ controller like a golf club and gently swing to hit a shot!

Moving your body to capture the sense of golfing is an immersive experience. It can be especially fun for those who want a more authentic golf experience or those who like to try something different. Remember to be aware of your surroundings and to allow adequate room around you during game play.

Golf alone or with others

Up to 4 players can join in the fun with both local* and online** multiplayer. Whether you want to immerse yourself into a solo golf experience or get your friends in on the action, there is a style for you.

The Mario Golf: Super Rush game for the Nintendo Switch system will launch on June 25, 2021.

King Bob-omb looks to be playable in Mario Golf: Super Rush

Blowing up the spot

Looks like Nintendo made a bit of mistake with their hub page for Mario Golf: Super Rush. The website went live earlier today, and it originally mentioned King Bomb-omb as playable. Nintendo clearly caught onto their mistake, and they've since removed the mention from that page. This definitely seems more like something Nintendo shared a bit earlier, rather than a flat-out mistake.
