To do:

Mario Strikers: Battle League is the grand return of the most grittiest Mario sub-series after a 15-year hiatus, bringing the series into crisp HD technology with new gameplay mechanics and a seasonal club mode. It is the last game to feature Charles Martinet as the voice of Wario and Waluigi, prior to his retirement from voicing Mario characters, as well as Deanna Mustard as the voice of Daisy.
