    At the Nintendo Media Summit today, Nintendo announced the first details of the Mario Baseball game..

    - firstly.. the game is renamed Mario Super Sluggers
    - The controls for the batter and pitcher work like Wii Sports, twisting the remote while throwing the ball gives you a curveball
    - Power moves can be pulled of with an A+B button combination, when charged
    - Fielding appeared to be largely controlled by the game's AI, with a shake of the Wii Remote making your fielder sprint to the ball.
    - Throwing to a baseman requires just a simple toss.
    - A quick press of A will make your defensive player dive for the ball, for dramatic last second catches.
    - Characters include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Daisy, Shy Guy, Monty Mole, Donkey Kong, Hammer Bros, Birdo and others..
    - Like Super Mario Strikers, Mario Super Sluggers uses a similar coach character team set up, with second string NIntendo characters like Shy Guy and Baby Mario covering the field while the player handles pitching duties.

    Seems boring, if practically everything is AI controlled

    Never have liked any of the Mario sports games.
    They all tend to suck. :/

    I'm perfectly happy with Wii Sports Baseball [​IMG]

    Camelot has made a terrific work so far with the Mario Sports series -Golf and Tennis-, Mario Strikers was awesome for multiplayer on the GC, Square Enix..well, I didnĀ“t really like Mario Basketball, but some people certainly did.
    Nintendo needs to do a better job with this one if they want it to succeed, with Smash Bros and MKWii out, the competition for the sales is gonna be hard.
