Guess who's in Mario Super Sluggers

Candace Savino

Sports nuts and Nintendo fans alike are probably anticipating the release of Mario Super Sluggers, which hits the streets of Japan on the 19th of this month. Mario won't be the only one slugging, though. You can expect his usual posse of Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, and Wario to join in on the fun.

Yet, you might be wondering who else is coming to play ball. Thanks to some tiny screens from the game's exposition mode (as well as perusing our gallery and other media), we can get an idea of a few playable characters. Unfortunately, the screens are so small that it's difficult to make out everyone.

For the spoiler sensitive types, we've posted the pictures and dropped some names after the break.


Some of the noticed characters include:

  • Waluigi (from gallery screens)
  • Bowser Jr. (from gallery screens)
  • Daisy (from gallery screens)
  • Diddy Kong (from gallery screens)
  • Miis (from gallery screens)
  • Magikoopa (from gallery screens)
  • Birdo (from gallery screens)
  • Lakitu (from boxart/logo)
  • Petey Piranha (from boxart/logo)
  • Toadette (from boxart/logo)
  • Dixie Kong
  • Shy Guy
  • Goombas
  • Paragoombas
  • Baby Mario
  • Baby Luigi
  • Parakoopa troopers
  • Boo
  • Birdo
Is there anyone else your eagle eyes can pick out?
