Mario Strikers: Battle League – Characters, Stadiums, DLC, Gear, and Unlockables

Our Mario Strikers: Battle League unlockables guide details how to get every character, unlock stadium upgrades, and reveal all secrets.

Mario Strikers: Battle League features five on five soccer gameplay with a host of different playable characters, including newcomer Rosalina. Items like Green Shells and Giant Bananas can be used against enemy teams, and don’t forget, you can get rough and slam right into opponents to get ahold of the ball. Hyper Shots are character specific special shots that blast the ball towards the goal, but they also provide an extra effect dependent on the character. After over a decade since Mario Strikers: Charged released on the Nintendo Wii back in 2007, the series returned on the Nintendo Switch with Mario Strikers: Battle League on June 10, 2022.

How to Get Coins and Tokens

Use coins to unlock gear for each character and to give yourself the opportunity to retry a match while playing in a cup. Here are a few ways to get coins:

Coins How to Unlock
800 Win a match during training.
400 Enter the Gear Shop for the first time.
400 Win a cup.
50 Win a cup that you’ve already won before.

Tokens are earned and used with the Strikers Club mode. Compete against other clubs and earn tokens after each match. Use those tokens to add new features to your club’s stadium. We’ll update this list once we learn new ways to earn tokens.

Coins How to Unlock
100 Win a match in Strikers Club.
75 Tie a match in Strikers Club.
50 Lose a match in Strikers Club.

You can also earn tokens as a reward for competing in a season. The amount can vary as it depends on your division and your placement within the season, but we’ve seen some rewards go up as high as 15,000.

List of Stadiums and Upgrades

At launch, Mario Strikers: Battle League had six different stadiums to play on. Sorry, no unlockable stadiums this time around. Three stadiums were added through DLC.

Lava Castle Spooky Mansion Jungle Retreat
Mushroom Hill Royal Castle
Desert Ruin Planetoid Urban Rooftop

Before starting a match, you’ll have the option to mash two different stadium halves together to make interesting combinations. If you’re part of a club, each stadium can be upgraded to expand the stadium theme, fence post, goal-line decoration, goals, and field. These customizations can be accessed in your Strikers Club options and can be purchased using tokens. Tokens are collected as a group. The more active players you have in your club, the faster you’ll unlock tokens.

Each stadium follows the same unlock structure for each customization. Purchasing the stadium theme upgrades is what unlocks additional customizations and makes them available for purchase. Check out this stadium customization video by YouTuber GoDlI for a look at almost all of the customizations.

Stadium Theme 10,000
Customizations 1-4 100
Customizations 5-8 250
Fields 7-8 500

Unfortunately, unlocking all of these customizations will take an enormous amount of time and effort so we don’t have images of each one. Instead, here’s a quick example of each type.

Stadium Theme Fence Post Goal-Line Decoration

One more thing! The same update that added customizable supporters also added the addition of customizable match celebrations. This new option allows you to pick three different firework types to feature in your match, as well as the confetti style. These cost coins instead of tokes to purchase, interestingly.
