The Mushroom Kingdom is once again ready to take on America's Favorite Pastime with Mario Super Sluggers. Set for a North American release on August 25th, this sequel to 2005's Mario Superstar Baseball will have Nintendo's Super Mario franchise characters return to the mound.
For starters, all the basic mechanics of baseball are present. A flick of the Wiimote will have players pitching and swinging with great ease while the Nunchuk's Analog Stick can be used to retrieve the ball. Tapping on the A Button will advance the runners while holding the B Button down will cause uncertain players to retreat to their former bases.
