Its a whole new ball game as Mario rocks the rim on the Nintendo DS.
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, theres a mode for everyone.
