It's a whole new ball game as Mario rocks the rim on the Nintendo DS! Get that magic touch! There are plenty of basketball games out there, but none with the hands-on control of Mario Hoops 3-on-3. Use the touch screen to get your game on as you execute tricky dribbles, special passes, and sweet shots-all with strokes and taps of the stylus.
Choose your team of three characters from the Mario universe and hit the parquet. Power-ups like Red Shells and Bob-ombs can turn the tide as you chase down coins- they will affect your score, so collect as many as you can as you drive to the hoop! Whether you're into playing against friends over local wireless, jamming through a tournament, or just playing minigames, there's a mode for you!
