Golf Story, the Switch’s subsequent large indie recreation, appears like a worthy follow-up to a Nintendo moveable basic.
1999’s Mario Golf for the Game Boy Color, developed by Camelot, did one thing a bit completely different from the N64 model launched that very same yr – it took the golfing fundamentals of the collection and threw them into an RPG. Your stats improved as you leveled up, progressing by way of the story and defeating new opponents as you went. The final purpose was to play golf in opposition to Mario himself and win, thus unlocking him as a playable character. It was sensible.
Golf Story, which releases at this time completely on the Nintendo Switch, is channeling the spirit of Mario Golf on this launch trailer, however with some added wrinkles. I don’t recall there being any murders in Mario Golf, as an example. The recreation has followers of Game Boy Color basic excited, although, as a result of there hasn’t actually been a correct follow-up to the unique – Everybody’s Golf on the PS4 has some related concepts (and the identical primary golfing mechanics, albeit up to date considerably), however Golf Story appears to be extra, effectively, story targeted.
We’re but to play the sport, however hopefully it would dwell as much as these recollections. It’s out now on Nintendo Switch. The GBC model of Mario Golf, in the meantime, is offered on the 3DS eShop.
