Mario Golf: Super Rush will swing with a large 17-member list of characters from Mario, through Rosalina to King Bob-Omb of Super Mario 64. Almost every character has been given a new look in the game, including a favorite Waluigi fan who has a steaming suit that seems more appropriate in a casino than on a golf course. Bowser also has a black golf cap, so his monstrous presence is less threatening.
Despite their different appearance, each character has their own statistics and special shots that need to be taken into account. King Bob-Omb, for example, can propel balls forward 230 yards and has a special shot that creates bombs in the landing zone. However, he lacks speed, which could limit your chances of winning speed golf matches. Luigi, meanwhile, has a range of 211 yards with a special shot that freezes on impact. When playing the game, you will need to find out which style suits you best.

At the time of writing, only 17 characters have been announced, but the character selection screen has a lot of blank space in particular. We assume that there will be a DLC for the game as on Nintendo’s last sports raid, Mario Tennis Aces. The most significant absences include:
- Diddy Kong
- Hammer Bro
- Plum and the rest of the Camalot characters from the original Mario Golf
