Mario Golf: Grand Tour is an upcoming sport game, the sixth installment in the Mario Golf (series) and it's going to be for the Wii U. The game is in development by Shooting Star Studios and Camelot Software Planning  with an unknown date at the moment. The game will have wi-fi capabilities, using Nintendo Network procedures.


The gameplay of the game is similar to past installments in the series. Players use the Wii U Gamepad to play this game using the buttons and the Touch Screen to play. Players can use the screen by tapping it to put the character ready to perform a shot and start charging. By sliding it the character will perform the shot. Buttons can also be used, it all depends on the player's desire and comfort. This discards the option to just change the selecting clubs, initiating shots and adding spin in the touch screen though. The player can use the screen or the Control Stick to change the shot trajectory while the character prepares their shot. There's also the impact zone feature. The Item Shots from Mario Golf: World Tour returns too, with a few new items. You can also customizeyour character with gears using Coins won in the game.

The Speed Golf and Mini Golf modes return from Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64. There's also a new mode called Maze Golf where players play in maze-like courses trying to find the hole in a determined amount of time. The time the player finishes this is what determines the number of Coins the player will win after the game. A Story Mode has also been announced and it will feature RPG elements like in past handheld installments. In this mode the player can use their Mii or one of the determined Mario characters for the story.

You are now also able to customize characters by unlocking their clothing or palette swap. Some of them can also be bought using Coins, others by buying exclusive future packs and others by scanning QR Codes with the Wii U Gamepad's NFC sensor. The same applies to Mii's customization, except this one doesn't contain gear unlocked with QR Codes.

Interaction with Mario Golf: World Tour

This game along with Mario Golf: World Tour seem to follow the series' tradition on having both a handheld and home console game connecting with each other. The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS connectivity is shown in this game as well, using it to transfer characters from one game to another and vice-versa. Exclusive characters from packs will not be into this though (with the exception of both Rosalina and Toadette, who became unlockable characters in this game).


The game contains various returning modes as well as a new one.

Solo Modes

  • Story Mode - Play as your Mii or one of the available characters for this mode (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Toad, Donkey Kong, Wario, Waluigi or Bowser) in an role-playing adventure, challenging various opponents and winning badges and cups to progress in the game and the Golf League Tournament. Become the Golf Champion in the Mushroom Kingdom.
  • Tournament - In this mode players compete against others for the first place in a 18-hole golf round, earning badges on holes. The winner is the one with the lowest score at the end.
  • Character Match - An one-on-one challenge against a computer character on a course of your choice with match play rules.
  • Ring Shot - Compete by hitting the ball into various rings on the course, still trying to finish at or under par.
  • Speed Golf - Compete a round of golf in the fastest time possible.
