Fans of golf games are either hardcore players that only play titles that offer realism like the Tiger Woods series or completely off-the-wall like the Hot Shots series. Nintendo’s Mario Golf series could be considered a golf game similar to the latter and its latest version will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS this summer.

Mario Golf: World Tour will be developed by famed series developer Camelot and will deliver a mix of traditional golf courses as well as courses inspired by the Mario series, which means we can expect there to be Bullet Bills, lava pits and probably a penguin or two in some of the courses.

The golf roster for Mario Golf: World Tour will include Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Bowser and Donkey Kong. It’s a shame no females from the Mario series have made it into the game at this point as we’re sure many female Mario Golf fans enjoy playing as Princess Peach or Daisy every so often.
