On Wednesday Nintendo outlined the next six months of Switch gaming at its Nintendo Direct keynote, and the first big reveal from the Japanese gaming giant is a new Mario game: Mario Golf Super Rush. It's not far off either, as Nintendo announced the game will hit the Nintendo Switch on June 25.

A trailer shown at Nintendo Direct, a keynote in which the company is announcing the next six months of Switch games, showed how the Joy-Con's motion controls can be used to swing your club, and some of the modes involved. There's a multiplayer Speed Golf mode, in which you and three other players race on the same course to sink your golf ball first. And there's a Story Mode, in which your Mii rises the ranks from rookie to golf pro.
