What It Is

Nintendo puts it's own spin on the game of baseball in Super Sluggers for the Wii. As with other Nintendo titles, Super Sluggers stars Mario along with a dugout filled with familiar Nintendo characters. The game utilizes the motion capturing abilities of the Wii Remote controller to pitch the ball and swing the bat. This intuitive system will have newcomers to gaming or sports titles channeling their inner Babe Ruth in no time at all. Nobody does party games like Nintendo and Sluggers will appeal to fans of the genre thanks to the ability for up to four players to challenge one another or compete in a host of baseball-themed mini-games. In addition to featuring more than 40 playable characters, Mario Super Sluggers also allows gamers to play with their Mii characters in several modes.
