Nintendo fans contemplating if they should purchase Mario Strikers: Battle League may be looking for a test run before committing to a purchase. But is the Mario Strikers: Battle League First Kick demo still available to download?

First Kick came out earlier in June, allowing players to experience Mario Strikers before it was released on June 10.

First Kick didn’t have all of the features of the full game. Online play was limited to certain time slots and it was only available as a 2v2 match. Players weren’t able to take part in online play solo. Still, it gave people a chance to try out the different characters and their special abilities. Early play already showed that some teammates were stronger than others.

Now that the game is released, the full game can be experienced once purchased and downloaded but some people are still skeptical after mixed reviews. Is the demo still available to try out first?

You can no longer find First Kick on the Nintendo eShop. The demo was only available for a single weekend, June 3 to June 5.

Fortunately, it’s been long enough that players have shared their reviews and streams online. Mario Strikers: Battle League has a 78% average on Google, which is a decent score overall. While it may not be a groundbreaking game and some aspects have been criticized, the competitive and skillful gameplay has made it a good pickup for those looking for zany soccer action.
