Mario Strikers: Battle League Update Live, Patch Notes Released
Another update is currently live for Mario Strikers: Battle League, bringing the game up to version 1.2.0. This is a major one, adding a lot of exceptionally anticipated content to the Nintendo Switch soccer game. Players will presently have the option of adding Diddy Kong and Pauline to their teams, and another Stadium option and Gear set has also been added. That alone would probably be enough for most fans, but there have also been a handful of balance changes and other updates. Full patch notes from Nintendo’s official website can be found below:
