Special Moves and Characters of Mario Super Sluggers

Mario Super Sluggers for the Wii is on its way, and yet, little has been revealed about the game. We’ve seen some scans, plus some video and screenshots, and yet, details have been sparse. But all that’s about to change.

We know the obvious lineup: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Wario, Waluigi, Daisy, Yoshi, Donkey, and Diddy Kong are in, but who else? Dixie Kong, Magikoopa, Piantas, Paragoombas, Paratroopas, Birdo, Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi, perhaps among others, seem ready to step up to the plate.

Special moves are in abundance as well, both of the batting and pitching variety. Some of what’s to be expected at bat are Mario’s Fire Shot, Peach’s Heart Shot, Bowser’s Blaze Shot, and Luigi’s Tornado Shot. Off the pitcher’s mound, we have Yoshi’s Rainbow Ball, DK’s Barrel Ball, Bowser Jr.’s Graffiti Ball, and Waluigi’s “WTF-Does-That-Mean?” Usoshiki Ball.
