Mario and Luigi are walking together when Luigi notices something laying on the ground. The object was a football! So, Mario and Luigi pick up the football and start throwing it back and fourth. Shortly after a mysterious paper falls from the sky. An ad, written on it is "Football Tryouts". Mario and Luigi looked at each other and smiled. "Lets a do this bro!". The day of the Tryouts Mario and Luigi got there and saw hundreds of other Mushroom Kingdom citizens there. When Mario and Luigi got to the front of the line a character caught their eyes. An awkward creature wearing a light brown robe with a hood covering his face. It was Bowser. This encouraged Mario and Luigi to do this even more knowing Bowser was part of this.

Adventure Mode: This is single player only sorry to burst your bubble. This is the mode that you want to play if you are into unlocking cool items such as trophies and characters.

Season Game: Are you sad that you can't play Adventure Mode with an extra player? Well if you have a friend with you, you can play Season game which is basically the Adventure Mode for two players. You play just regular stadiums in this mode though.

Exhibition Game: A quick game that you can play with friends or the computer. You can also customize it to your likings.

Mini-Game Mode: Over 10 mini-games that you and friends can play. You can also unlock more Mini-Games in Adventure Mode.

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

Once you sign onto Wi-Fi it is very simple you can choose 5 options:

Regular Game: Play an online game with people around the world. You can choose Local or Worldwide with people you want to play with. Or you can add people to be friends.

Mini-Game: Play mini-games online and compete for high scores. You can try for high scores like: Friend High-scores, Worldwide High-scores, Local High-scores, and Daily High-scores.

Team Battle: Same as Regular game but you are teamed up with other people.

Stadium Creator: Create stadiums online and play them online. The more you play games online the more things you unlock for the stadium creator.

Character Creator: Same as Stadium Creator but you can make characters. You can also get items for your characters by finding them online.

The Locker Room Channel

If you want even more fun for your game why don't you go online and get the Locker Room Channel. It lets you keep track of your online trophies and badges. You can also enter tournaments for trophies and badges. Not only that but every game you play online you can either earn or lose points. But those points you can use at the shop. At the shop you can buy things for Stadium Creator, Character Creator, Trophies, Badges, and even things you can use for when you are playing the game off-line.


Green Shell: Can be shot forward and backwards. This type of shell just shoots in a straight line bouncing off of every wall it hits. This type of shell is most common and can only take one hit. Any player it collides with is stunned.

Mushroom: Increases your speed for a short amount of time.

Star: Makes you invincible for a short amount of time. Every player you run into is stunned for a short amount of time too.

Banana: You can lay this on the field. Any player that runs over this slips and falls.

POW Block: When you use this item every player on the opposing team on-screen falls. You can actually dodge this item by jumping at the right time.

Lightning: When obtained you shrink all of the opposing team for a short amount of time. If you are shrunk by a lightning bolt you are slower.

Red Shell: This shell can be shot only forward. This shell targets the closest player. If this shell hits any wall it is destroyed.

Mega Mushroom: This mushroom increases the size of your player. Making opponents able to crush and flatten (making them slower) this mushroom also increases your speed slightly. This item lasts around 15 seconds.

Spiny Shell: What was used to known as the Blue Shell is now known as Spiny Shell. The dreaded item from Mario Kart is back. When you use this item it targets whoever has the ball.

Bob-omb: You can throw this bomb item. After about three seconds it explodes. Whoever is in the range of the explosion is stunned for a short amount of time.

Blue Shell: This item is now known as the Blue Shell. When you throw this shell any player struck by it is frozen. You can shoot this forwards and backwards. Unlike other shells this shell lasts longer. It freezes about 3 players before being destroyed.

Feather: This item allows the player to fly. Flying is a handy item because when you fly your speed increases allowing you to fly over to the ball and getting an interception or targeting the player you are going after.

Triple Green Shell: Same as Green Shell but you have three shells

Triple Red Shell: Same as Red Shell but you have three shells

Triple Blue Shell: Same as Blue Shell but you have three shells

Mario Stadium: Come on! All Mario sport games need a Mario Stadium. With no gimmicks, this stadium is a good place to practice or just play a normal game of football.

Peach's Snowy Rink: This cool stadium is placed in the middle of a snowing ice rink. Watch out for freezies as they wander around the rink. There is also snow all over that could make you run slower.

Wario's Bomb Factory: Stray Bob-ombs run around here. Watch out for them. Also watch out for the conveyor belts that make you move in the direction they show.

Yoshi Cove: A watery field, that is built on a giant boardwalk. There are holes in the boardwalk though. In some holes, there are cheep cheeps that pop out. Water also sometimes splashes on the field making that area wet and able to slip.

Donkey Kong Jungle: This field has all kinds of tricks and traps. It has Klaptraps, Poison Flowers, and Barrels rolling all over the place. You have to be on your toes if you come here.

Please note here too, that there are more stadiums but they are in the Unlockables section.


There are 12 Mini-Games in Super Mario Football. 6 to unlock and 6 that are already unlocked.

Hoop Challenge: You have 1:30 to throw the footballs into hoops. There are 3 rows of hoops and each row is traveling in a random direction. You have unlimited footballs also.

Perfect Passes: Pass the football to your teammates. Sounds simple, right? Well the catch is that there is snow and Freezies everywhere. If the throw is off then it will land in the snow and your teammate will not be able to catch it. Or you could lead them into a Freezie by accident.

Dodging Danger: This mini-game is located in Wario's Bomb Factory. It has a simple task: Run down the field and make it to the end zone. But the gimmick is that the dangers are still in the field. Bob-omb explosions, conveyor belts everywhere, and flamethrowers. This can be challenging, but can you beat the record?

Boardwalk Breakers: This is a punting mini-game. On the boardwalk are holes. But there is also a giant glowing circle. Playing this mini-game is a good way to practice punting. You want to go for the giant circle. But to make it challenging the circle moves every time and sometimes gets smaller.

Items Advantage: In the wild jungle there are strange creatures. But what you may not know is that you can defeat these creatures with items. You start with green shells and you fire them at the klaptraps. But then it gets even more advanced, the more enemies you defeat the more items you get and you get different items too occasionally. But along with new items there are new enemies like Poison Flowers which can dodge attacks and barrels which take two hits.

Special Attack Practice: This isn't much of a mini-game as much as practice. You can practice any character's special attack here. You have unlimited and you can pick any character you unlocked.

Adventure Mode

The adventure mode is an option you can select in Single mode. This has it's own story:


(Spoiler Warning)

After Mario and Luigi notice Bowser at the sign ups, they take action. So from then they start practicing by throwing the football, punting, and passing. They look at the chain fence beside where they were practicing. They saw Toads, Yoshis, Goombas, all kinds of citizens. So they follow them. Where were they going? Well we don't know right now. But when Mario and Luigi followed them over a hill. They soon saw where they were going. It was an area full of stadiums, shops, and buildings.From this point on Mario and Luigi were in football heaven. But they did know that they would have to compete against all kinds of friends, foes, and fiends. But they could recruit all kinds of teammates and captains.

World Map:

The world-map is very similar to Super Mario Sluggers. There are areas where you can go to and each area has gimmicks. Some areas you have to unlock though.

You start at Mario Stadium and have the choice to go to either Yoshi Cove or Peach Ice Rink. Then once you complete two of those you unlock the path to Wario's Bomb Factory and DK Jungle. Once you complete one of those you unlock a path to a shop where you can buy items for you or more paths to stadiums. Once you buy the paths you unlock the stadiums. You can buy the paths to Luigi Mansion and Daisy Field. If you go to Luigi Mansion and get passed it you unlock the path to another shop that you can buy items or the path to Birdo Mall which connects into Yoshi Cove Path. If you go through Daisy Field path you reach the path to Peach Ice Rink. But if you do both DK Jungle and Wario Bomb Factory you unlock the path to Waluigi Desert which is a new stadium. Once you complete Waluigi Desert you can go through the path that goes to a shop or Bowser Jr.'s Park. After defeating Bowser Jr.'s Park you can go to the last required Stadium: Bowser's Castle. But if you go to the shop you unlock the path to Diddy's Raft Ride and Baby Playroom. I also made a rough sketch of what the world map might look like if you don't quite understand the description of it.

Story (cont.)

(MAJOR SPOILERS) After you defeat Bowser Jr.'s Park he is not defeated, instead he runs to his daddy at the volcano. This is the final showdown. You can choose any of the characters that you have unlocked to defeat Bowser. When you are ready go for it. Lightning blares across the sky and thunder roars above you while a volcano is in plain sight. This is a true epic showdown. "It is on Bowser!". Mario vs. Bowser. But once you defeat Bowser he stumbles and falls to his knees. He grumbles "you may have defeated me but this is just the start". Peach then says to Bowser "Why don't you just join us, instead of always being the villain?". Bowser slowly looks up at Peach and nods. Bowser Jr. in the background gasps and runs towards Bowser. "Why daddy?" Bowser Jr. questions. "We are always the bad guys, we never have fun, we never win, we don't have friends only our minions. Why should we ruin the fun for everyone else when we can join in the fun instead" Bowser explains. Mario then jumps in and suggests "Let's a have a great feast celebrating a new teammate!" Later, everybody sits down at a table looking down at the food: Fresh Lobster, Succulent ribs, juicy steak. But of course DK couldn't wait and he just pigs in. Then everybody laughs, Bowser did too... But Bowser.... his laugh was different.... it was more of an evil laugh..... The End?


Unlockable Stadiums

Luigi Mansion: Play football inside the mansion itself! With ghosts that will knock the football around it can be easy to get interceptions here. Sometimes the lights will dim down very low too making it hard to see. UNLOCK: Buy it at one of the shops

Birdo Mall: A football field, inside a mall? This one is. There really isn't that much in this stadium besides the escalators. Yeah that's right this football stadium has two floors causing major havoc. UNLOCK: Buy it at one of the shops

Daisy Field: When you think of a football field you think of a regular football field. Not flowers and tall grass growing all over it. With the tall grass it is hard to see the football. Amazy Dayzees wander around here to putting players that fall in the range of the music notes asleep. UNLOCK: Buy it at one of the shops

Waluigi Desert: In the heart of a desert is this stadium. This stadium is very dangerous and holds many obstacles. There are tweesters, which are tornado like enemies that will fling you somewhere else on the field. Also there are quick sand spots that will suck you in causing you to waste time. Another gimmick is that this field is built on a tomb, a tomb that has ancient pillars. These pillars will fall on the field and you have to jump over them. UNLOCK: Complete DK Jungle and Wario Bomb Factory

Bowser Jr.'s Park: A stadium built on the inside of an amusement park. There is a train that goes throughout this park, there are swings that can fling you in random spots, and there is an intense roller coaster that travels through the stadium. This field is full of danger. UNLOCK: Complete Waluigi Desert

Diddy's Raft Ride: Most donkey kong levels have a raft that you ride on. This time Diddy Kong gets it! A whole entire football field on a raft. Watch out on this level because you can actually fall off the raft. Also as you are riding through the jungle there are swinging vines that can knock you off the raft. Also Cheep Cheeps and Klaptraps can fall aboard the raft. Lastly water can be washed aboard too making it slippery. This level is like an advanced Yoshi Cove. UNLOCK: Buy it at one of the shops

Baby Playpen: This field is a fun one. This level is a lot like Bowser Jr.'s Playroom from Super Mario Sluggers. It has the panels on the floor with enemies inscribed on them. Like Chain Chomp summons chain chomp, bullet bill summons bullet bill, so on... There really isn't much in this field though. UNLOCK: Buy it at one of the shops

Bowser's Castle: Every game needs a Bowser Castle. This Bowser Castle might be the most epic of them all as of now though. This castle is built on the side of a volcano. Which adds to the gimmick, magma rocks fall from the sky. Along with that they burn holes in the stage leaving lava puddles there. Not only that but Podoboos pop out of them and chase you. This may certainly be one of the hardest stadiums. UNLOCK: Complete Bowser Jr.'s Park

Galaxy Stadium: The last stadium in the game, this one is also the hardest. This stadium is held in outer space on a giant star-like planet. This stadium flies through the galaxy looking upon many of the galaxies you have saw in Super Mario Galaxy franchise. But the thing that makes this stadium hard to seal with is the shooting stars that fall from the sky. Shooting Stars have a wide variety of affects. For instance, they can be helpful and give you items. Or they could be hurtful and give you enemies. Sometimes meteors will crash into the stage resulting in either two things: Leaving a hole in the stadium or tilting the entire stadium. One last gimmick is that you can fall off the stage! UNLOCK: Unlock all of the previous stadiums
