Mario Super Sluggers special moves and mystery characters

By Spencer . June 9, 2008 . 4:32pm


Super Mario Stadium: Family Stadium (aka Mario Super Sluggers outside of Japan) is about to hit retail stores and like Nintendo’s other first party releases this summer we don’t know that much about it. Obviously Mario, Luigi, Wario, Peach, Bowser, and Donkey Kong will step up to bat, but who else will Nintendo throw into the game? The tiny screenshots above from the exhibition mode provide some clues that other screenshots haven’t divulged. It looks like Dixie Kong, a Magikoopa, Delfino residents, and Paragoombas will join Birdo, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and Parakoopa troopers. Can you identify any other squished countenance?


You might want to skip over series regulars since we have screenshots of them using special moves below. Take a look at some of the sample "shots" (hits) and "balls" (pitches).



Mario – Fire Shot


Peach – Heart Shot


Bowser – Blaze Shot


Luigi – Tatsumaki Shot (Tornado Shot)


Yoshi – Rainbow Ball


Donkey Kong – Barrel Ball


Bowser Jr. – Rakugaki Ball (Graffiti Ball)


Waluigi – Usoshiki Ball
