Mario Super Sluggers is the sequel to Mario Superstar Baseball. Adding new playable characters, stadiums, error items, and even a brand new Challenge Mode! This is also one of the few Mario games to not be released in Europe.

Unused Graphics

Bowser Jr's Paintbrush

MarioSuperSluggersBowserJrPaintbrush.png

The texture for Bowser Jr's paintbrush has unused graphics for the E. Gadd logo, the two spikes on the sides, and the blue ring around the logo. This is a leftover from the original paintbrush texture used in games such as Super Mario Sunshine, and Mario Power Tennis.

King K. Rool's Scepter

The texture for King K. Rool's scepter has an unused graphic for a green diamond. This suggests that at one point in development, the blue diamond on top of the scepter was originally going to be green.

Unused Music

bgm_captain

An unused song labled "bgm_captain". This song would've played during an event involving the team captain.

  • The Japanese version has the MAIN MENU graphic with all letters capitalized, which was changed in the American version.
  • Toy Field's icon in the Japanese version has colored text saying TOY. This was changed to the Toy Field emblem in the American version, consisting of two bats behind a large baseball.

Audio Differences

Birdo

Japan America
"Catherine!"
"Birdo!"

In the Japanese version, selecting Birdo on the character select screen has her say "Catherine!" This is because Catherine is the Japanese name for Birdo. This was changed to Birdo saying "Birdo!" when choosing her on the character select screen.

Team Names

A handful of the team names were changed.
