Oh god yeah, defo :p Really want a new Mario footie game, and loved the character designs/outfits in them... Hopefully we get another on Wii U or NX.

Look at the state of the spin on the rugby ball when they throw it in that trailer lmao. That's not how you pass a rugby ball!

Holy crap they're angry in that picture. Smilie
