Mario Strikers: Soccer Battle League is the name of Nintendo’s latest sports game. However, before the new action-packed soccer game launches for Switch on June 10, a first-kick demo event will begin, where players can already start matches. As an active Nintendo Switch Online member, you can now work your way through Training Mode.

Starting June 2 at 12 pm, the mode will be available to all players who opt for at least a 7-day free trial of Nintendo Switch Online. This means that everyone can watch the new football game before it is released. The training covers the basics of the game, from dribbling, passing, scoring and tackling to advanced techniques and plays.

On Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5, players will be able to compete against each other in real team matches online. However, this is only at certain times.

You can play at these times:

  • Saturday June 4: 05:00 – 06:00
  • Saturday, June 4: 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 4: 9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
  • Sunday June 5: 05:00 – 06:00
  • Sunday June 5: 13:00 – 14:00
  • Sunday June 5: 9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Up to four players can compete on a team in online demo event matches, and up to two athletes can play together on a Nintendo Switch console on the same team. It’s also possible to randomly team up with other Nintendo Switch fans online. Either way, everyone can experiment with all ten of the game’s characters during the event, testing out their special abilities and building a team based on their preferred playstyle.
