Mario Golf: World Tour introduces online tournament play to the series, and it's a key cog in the game experience.

Unfortunately, we haven't gotten to try out the online portion of the title – featuring local and worldwide online play – so we'll reserve our judgement on the game until we get to try it out.

We're sorry for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience in the matter.

Mario Golf: World Tour comes out for the Nintendo 3DS on May 2.
