The superstars of the Mushroom Kingdom gather on the diamond to power up America's favorite pastime.
- Play ball! Players pick captains, fill out their teams with their favorite characters from the Mario™ universe and hit the field in an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master ballgame. Each captain has a special Star Skill for pitching and batting, so whether players hurl fireballs as Mario or blast curving banana balls as Donkey Kong®, they'll experience baseball like never before.
- In Challenge mode, players wander through a world of wild trials, playing mini-games to earn coins and power-ups, unlocking characters and clearing baseball-related challenges on their way to a showdown with Bowser.
- Players can play exhibition games against a friend or take on up to three pals in crazy mini-games like Bob-omb Derby and Barrel Batter, each of which refines skills they'll use on the diamond. Or players can hit the Toy Field for a frantic, point-based game of pitch-and-hit.
Game Storyline: Characters drawn from all of the Mario games gather to play baseball and baseball-related mini-games.
Characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi™, Birdo, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Wario™, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong® and more than 20 other characters from the Mario universe.
How to progress through the game: Play exhibition games, complete baseball-related missions in Challenge mode, beat multiple skill levels of the mini-games and play Toy Field matches to unlock new characters, features and stadiums.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: All of the captains have a unique Star Skill that allows them to perform a special move while pitching or batting. These range from turning the baseball into a fireball that sets players on fire (Mario and Luigi) to transforming the ball into a banana that whirls erratically through the air (DK and Diddy Kong) to launching a somersaulting Bullet Bill instead of the ball (Bowser and Bowser Jr.)
