From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to: navigation, search
This page details one or more prototype versions of Mario Superstar Baseball.

A demo of Mario Superstar Baseball (at this point, Mario Baseball) was released on Interactive Multi-Game Demo Disc 27 in January 2005, well before the Japanese final was released on July 21.

Hmmm...
To do:
Help get into ZZZZ.dat to find some unused stuff. Same with the final game.

Title Screen

The old logo is different, with a baseball diamond as the design.

Main Menu

Numerous differences, including:

  • The title on the left says "SUPER MARIO STADIUM" instead of "Mario Superstar Baseball".
  • Several words are capitalized differently.
  • The description for Exhibition Game is aligned differently.
  • There seems to be two extra options, though they're both locked.

Minigames Preview

Some songs are a bit different at this point in development.

Sounds a little more MIDI-ish in the prototype.

GCM Information

The following can be seen by converting the demo to an ISO and placing it in the Dolphin (GameCube/Wii emulator) menu.

First of all, the game has its own save banner.

Secondly, the internal title reads: "Famista2003 GC" (ファミスタ2003 GC). This would appear to refer to Namco's Family Stadium 2003 (ファミリースタジアム 2003), which was released for the GameCube on May 30, 2003.
