The gameplay of Mario Sports Resort is similar to Wii Sports Resort and the Mario and Sonic titles. Each sport has its unique controls. Most sports from Wii Sports Resort are played similarly as in it, and new sports are based off of it.
- Sports (1-4 Players): The player can compete with other Mario characters for first place.
- Dream Sports (1-4 Players): Like in Mario and Sonic, these are based on normal events, but take place in real locations from the Mario world.
- Party Games (1-4 Players): Four party games are playable, which each have different gameplay but involve playing events to get points, or whatever the game's using.
- Training (1 Player): Training for each event is held which involves doing a certain task to pass.
- Shopping (1 Player): Using points achieved from winning sports, the player can buy music, books, items, decals, and clothing.
- Online (1-8 Players total): Sports can be played with people from around the world.
The gameplay will work just like in Wii Sports Resort. There are twelve total sports, six of which are default and the other six are unlockable. Each sport has at least two submodes and in each, the gameplay differs. There are twenty-seven total submodes. Each sport is playable with at least two human players, some allowing three or four. Sports that support up to seven CPU players can be played with eight online, though.
Like in the Mario and Sonic series, Dream Events exist, where events are playable in locations from the Mario series. Most sports are playable in Dream except two, both in the Air Sports category.

Mario Sports Resort features four party games that all involve playing sports to get points, which dictate how the main party game is won.
The Galaxy Games
This party game takes place on the Comet Observatory, which has various Power Stars and Grand Stars all about. It is also marked with dots, which signify where the player can move. One of the four players picks the event from spinning a large wheel, and the event starts. The player in first gets fifteen points, second gets twelve, third gets ten, and fourth gets seven. Whoever spins the wheel gets to move first, the others following in order. After the designated amount of rounds (4 through 8) are over, Power Stars (1 point) and Grand Stars (3 points) are added up and the person with the most points wins. Warp Pads are found all around, which can be used as shortcuts.
The game has twenty-four confirmed playable characters, with eight availible from the start. This count includes DLC-buyable characters, which cost $2.50 each. There are four ability classes: All-Around, Speed, Power, and Skill. There are six characters in each class. Miis will also be playable, but their type depends on their size and weight, like in Mario Kart Wii.
All-around characters are average at every stat.

In addition to the twenty-four previously mentioned, Miis are also playable in this game. Their height and weight can be changed in-game, although that will not change the Mii's official settings. Their voices can be adjusted and clothes can be put on them to match the player's interest.
|Mii||Vary based on their settings.||Play all events and their sub-events.|

These items are only usable by a specific character.
These items are usable by everyone but they have to be bought.
There are many badges in this game, attainable from doing things in sports. Other badges earnable in other ways can be received, too. Badges have ratings based on how hard they are to get: bronze, silver, gold, platinum, and black. Bronze badges give 10 Sports Points, silver 30, gold 60, platinum 100, and black 150.
Using Sports Points, things can be bought from the Sports Shop in downtown Wuhu Island. Sports Points, or SPs, can be earned by participating in events, and more points are earned depending on the player's rank. They can also be earned by collecting badges. In the Sports Shop, music, decals, clothing, items, and books can be bought.
How to Earn SPs
A five point participation bonus is given even if the player doesn't finish within the top three. Thirty are awarded for first, twenty for second, and ten for third. None are given below third. Collecting badges also gives fifty points, along with breaking a record. Finding hidden things buyable from the Secret Shop in downtown also gives points.

- DLC was incorporated into the game only soon before the release.
- There was formerly a winter sports mode, but was pulled and replaced with Dream Sports.
- Dry Bowser was formerly a playable character, but Sonic replaced him.
- Gameplay of Surfing was originally different, featuring a Tsunami mode where large waves could be surfed on for lots of points, but it was cut due to people from locations that had had tsunamis getting angry due to Nintendo's portayal of one as something fun.
