Mario Golf World Tour tees off on May 2

Mario Golf World Tour launches on May 2 in North America for 3DS and 2DS, Nintendo announced today.

The game features a Castle Club mode that allows players to hit the green with their own, customized characters. There are eight customizable items sold in the in-game shop, including clubs, golf balls and clothing, and character stats can be upgraded as each player sees fit. Mario Gold World Tour also has a training mode.

The May 2 date is a delay from Mario Golf World Tour's original launch window in summer 2013.
