It’s been a big week for video game football – with Electronic Arts and football’s international governing body FIFA announcing they would be going separate ways. It seems that’s not the only football drama currently taking place though.
Nintendo’s upcoming release Mario Strikers: Battle League is looking great and all, but concerns have been raised about the character Daisy. If you’ve seen the roster reveal so far, you might have noticed the other Princess hasn’t been featured in the promotional materials…at least yet, and well, it’s got some of her fans freaking out on social media.
Nintendo shared a tweet, showing off the squad lineup and a lot of the replies wanted to know where Daisy was. She’s appeared in the previous two entries, but it seems like Nintendo could be mixing things up this time with a few other characters.

I’m glad I’m far from the only one who cares passionately for Daisy. @Nintendo take note, if you don’t care, we do. https://t.co/9sbxETPMl0— Sharena Von Askr (@SharenaVonAskr) May 9, 2022
No Daisy, no buying. As simple as that. https://t.co/VDuNB2Nm2z— The Magician 🔮 (@JohnnyRBck) May 10, 2022
Where👏🏼is👏🏼Daisy👏🏼? I won’t get this game until you fix this. The nerve you had. That’s my decision. Not buying until I see Daisy. pic.twitter.com/DT7epgTFY2— #DawnOfChromatica (@ParisArtpop22) May 10, 2022
You're really going to leave Daisy out huh? Do us a favor Nintendo, remove Toad from the game. That little mushroom guy can go somewhere else. Daisy has more competitive spirit than that second soccer ball.— Daniel328 (@Daniel328DT) May 9, 2022

As you can above, there are some ah… passionate Daisy fans out there. Of course, even if Daisy has been subbed off in the latest Mario Strikers game, she could still potentially be added in a DLC update later down the line – similar to how characters have been added into Mario Golf: Super Rush.
The current line up in Mario Strikers: Battle League includes Mario, Peach, Luigi, Toad, Bowser, Rosalina, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario, Waluigi and Boom Boom as the goalkeeper.
How would you feel about Daisy not making the cut in Mario Strikers: Battle League? Think we’ll see her at some point? Leave your thoughts down below.
