[edit] Gameplay

Mario Super Sluggers can be played using three different control methods:

  • Wii Remote (vertical)
  • Wii Remote (horizontal)
  • Wii Remote + Nunchuk combo

In order to bat or pitch, the A button must be held and then the Wii Remote must be swung at the appropriate time. The more precise the hit/pitch, the further/faster the ball will go. The player can do curve balls as well by twisting the Wii Remote, while pitching. Once the ball is in a fielder's hand, the Remote must be swung so that the fielder can pitch the ball at one of the basemen. Some fielders can throw fast balls or Laser Balls in order to get to one of the basemen faster.

[edit] Features

  • 9 Stadiums
  • 3 Different Styles of Gameplay
  • 43 Playable characters (Including using your Mii and some characters have different colors schemes to choose from)
  • Challenge Mode reappears from Mario SuperStar Baseball
