When Mario Sports Superstars was announced in last week's Nintendo Direct, chances are you probably thought it was being developed by none other than Camelot, the developer behind the long-running Mario Golf and Mario Tennis series of games.
And technically, you'd be right. Sort of.
As it turns out, Mario Sports Superstars is actually a collaboration between two development studios. One is Camelot and the other is Bandai Namco Studios, the latter of which previously collaborated with Masahiro Sakurai on Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.
It stands to reason, then, that Camelot is likely working on the golf and tennis segments of the game (given their experience creating the Mario Golf/Tennis games) while Bandai Namco Studios is working on the horse-racing, soccer, and baseball segments. Although who knows, perhaps Camelot is also contributing to the latter games as well!
At any rate, we'll find even more about the game as it gets closer to its Spring 2017 release window on 3DS. If you missed the initial reveal, check out the trailer for the game below.
