In a recent interview Mike Inglehart of Next Level games spoke about Mario Strikers Charged and its online component.
"This game is about multiplayer and that's been our focus from the beginning. Wi-fi in Mario Strikers Charged is region specific so we can ensure a quality gameplay experience. The game is very twitch based and reactive, so it's important for us to keep lag to a minimum".
Some are up in arms about not being able to compete against other people worldwide, but would you really want to play a game that lags like ass?
Mario Strikers Charged is to be Europe's first online game, the service is set to go online next month.
