Mario Supper Slugger


Nintendo has revealed plans for Mario Super Sluggers for Wii. Mario can be hold seen holding a baseball bat with his M logo on it in the character image above.

Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing, says in the announcement, "Mario is truly a one-of-a-kind character; clearly fans can't get enough of him and his friends. We're giving Wii users brilliant new ways to enjoy him while expanding our series of active-play games."

It was just a matter of time before game makers combined sports games with the popular series stars. Most adults prefer the serious games populated with "real" baseball stars but kids are happy to have the lovable Mario and friends around. Wikipedia has a list of the Mario characters that will appear in the baseball game.
