Mario Hoops 3-on-3

released on Jul 27, 2006

Get that magic touch. There are plenty of basketball games out there, but none with the hands-on control of Mario Hoops 3-on-3. Players use the touch screen to get their game on as they execute tricky dribbles, special passes and sweet shots - all with strokes and taps of the stylus. Players choose their teams of three characters from the Mario universe and hit the parquet. Power-ups like Red Shells and Bob-ombs can turn the tide as they chase down coins - they will affect the score, so players collect as many as they can as they drive to the hoop. Whether playing against friends on a local wireless connection, jamming through a tournament or just playing mini-games, there's a mode for everyone.

This game honestly went CRAZY. They need to bring back a fleshed out Mario Basketball game for the Switch, bc this is a great idea. Such a weird game too, some of the characters weren't even from Mario, which I thought was pretty funny. Also the character select screen music went so hard, they were cooking in the studio.

1.5 star game but they put the wackiest selection of final fantasy characters in this game and that is 1 star of funniness

Definición de juego del que no esperaba nada, pero que termino sorprendiéndome y siendo excelente y uno de mis favoritos de la DS. El mejor Spinoff de la saga de Mario (junto a Party DS).

Birdetta and ff characters in the game 😈 based

The gameplay loop on this I remember being fun as hell too bad I lost the cartridge
