Reception and Sequels
Super Mario MHL received many very positive reviews. The released with so many people buying it that it got a best seller logo on it. Reviewers loved that Mario finally played hockey on the Wii and Wii3D and had so many characters and arenas to play in. It got a 7.5/10 from IGN and an 8/10 from Gamespot. Steli Entertainment gave it a B+. The game (as EEA Inc. hoped) sold well enough to have a sequel at the end of 2009 called Super Mario MHL: Series 2 which many companies were invited to work on. EEA Inc. said that if the rating /10 increases in the sequel another sequel will release in 2010. However, the sequel was a failure and was not what EEA Inc. wanted. After that, EEA Inc. refused to work on a sequel. Omegaverse Corp. then asked to sololy take over the game and it was accepted. After that, EEA Inc. decided to bring back the series with an official sequel to Super Mario MHL, MHL 10 which was released after EA Sports' NHL 10 in late 2009.
