Mario Hoops 3-on-3 is a nifty sports game set to bet released on the Nintendo DS later this year. It features many classic characters — including Dixie Kong, Boo, Peach, Bowser, Birdo, and lots more. Video after the jump.

Sure, Mario playing any sport or performing virtually any activity at this point is de rigeur, but the unusual stylus based control scheme, coupled with Final Fantasy mainstays like mages, moogles, and more, make for a strange mushroomy brew
