Mario Superstar Baseball

The superstars of the Mushroom Kingdom gather on the diamond to power up America's favorite pastime.

  • Play ball! Players pick captains, fill out their teams with their favorite characters from the Mario universe and hit the field in an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master ballgame. Each captain has a special Star Skill for pitching and batting, so whether players hurl fireballs as Mario or blast curving banana balls as Donkey Kong, they'll experience baseball like never before.
  • In Challenge mode, players wander through a world of wild trials, playing mini-games to earn coins and power-ups, unlocking characters and clearing baseball-related challenges on their way to a showdown with Bowser.
  • Players can play exhibition games against a friend or take on up to three pals in crazy mini-games like Bob-omb Derby and Barrel Batter, each of which refines skills they'll use on the diamond. Or players can hit the Toy Field for a frantic, point-based game of pitch-and-hit.

Game Storyline: Characters drawn from all of the Mario games gather to play baseball and baseball-related mini-games.

Characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Birdo, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong and more than 20 other characters from the Mario universe.

How to progress through the game: Play exhibition games, complete baseball-related missions in Challenge mode, beat multiple skill levels of the mini-games and play Toy Field matches to unlock new characters, features and stadiums.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: All of the captains have a unique Star Skill that allows them to perform a special move while pitching or batting. These range from turning the baseball into a fireball that sets players on fire (Mario and Luigi) to transforming the ball into a banana that whirls erratically through the air (DK and Diddy Kong) to launching a somersaulting Bullet Bill instead of the ball (Bowser and Bowser Jr.)

Yeah but if you play this it's not as healthy as real baseball!

The only mario sports games Nintendo needs to make are Hockey, boxing and swimming.

Diddy Kong is better. He has a Special Shot. I can't wait for DK Bongo Blast to come out on Wii.

Diddy is better in all. But it's nice to see dixie around.

I don't know about that. MVP Baseball is or was the best baseball series in my book.

This game is awesome. I got it in Christmas 2005. It's hard though. Oh and Wii Freak, they just need to make Football and Hockey.
