Final Fantasy invades Mario Sports Mix

Prepare for Moogle/Yoshi face-off.

Square Enix is all set to break Nintendo characters' monopoly on Mario's sporting spin-offs with the announcement that a number of Final Fantasy favourites are limbering up for Mario Sports Mix.

The game's official site confirms that you'll be able to play as a ninja, white mage, black mage, Moogle or Cactaur when the title, developed by Square Enix, hits the Wii next year.

There may be more surprises to come too – a Dragon Quest copyright line is displayed at the bottom of the page.

Nintendo characters confirmed so far include Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Waluigi, Wario, Princess Peach, Yoshi and Donkey Kong.

Mario Sports Mix, which offers hockey, volleyball, dodgeball and basketball, launches on the Wii in Japan on 25th November with a worldwide roll-out to follow in early 2011.
