Mario Superstar Basketball is an upcoming title in the Super Mario series. It is the sequel to Mario Hoops 3 on 3 released on the Nintendo DS. It will have many new features, including Online Multiplayer and a new Channel where players can look at their scores and the leaderboard of the week and the Superstar of the Day. The game will be released in Mid-Summer time 2014 for all regions (July 30 in Europe and America, August 1 for Japan and August 9th for Australlia).


The gameplay of the game is somewhat very similar to its predecessor. Players can choose from many characters including some new and stages from places and areas in the Mario series. The player will choose a team of 3, which will play against another team of 3 characters that can be chosen or randomly picked. The teams can be identified by the color ring underneath them.

When the game begins, both teams will start on their side of court until a Lakitu drops the basketball and the game starts, players will get to their opponent's basket and try to score as many points as possible, also collecting coins by dribbling on item boxes located on the floor (which will be used for adding to the points when scoring) then when a goal is scored, the players will be sent back to their side and the other team who didn't score will start off with the ball, once time runs out, you will play more games (depending on your settings for the match) and when all games are played, the team with the most points will win. After the match the winning team will get 50 coins which can be used in the shop to buy basketballs. Chance Shots will return from Mario Tennis Open but as Chance Shoots.
