Today's Nintendo Direct let us know that 3DS title Mario Golf World Tour is launching on May 2nd. As a crazed videogame golf fan, I can't wait.
Today, Iwata showed off a new mode that lets you use your Mii characters to play through the game. The eight items you can purchase at the shop (clubs, balls, clothing, and more) can be equipped and used. You'll be able to customize your Mii and then take it into tournaments.
Winning tournaments will let you progress to enter higher class ones later. There will be the ability to take your Mii and practice on certain aspects of play, like putting or approaches, too.
