Mario Sports Superstars is a brand new game which was revealed by Nintendo for the 3DS console last year. The company has now announced that the game will be available on March 24 2017. In addition, Nintendo has also revealed new collectibles called Amiibo Cards. Using the cards in-game will allow players to unlock superstar versions of their characters in the upcoming title.
