Believe it or not, some retailers have the much anticipated title, Mario Super Sluggers, on their shelves. The official release date for this game is August 25, 2008. Its not surprising that some stores are handing a few copies here and there before the actual launch date. If you see a friend with his own copy of Sluggers, you will most likely ask where he got it from. Sooner or later (and I presume sooner), you will go to that same retailer and get your hands on that particular game. Pretty spiffy promotion, don’t you think?
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I got some investigating to do at my nearest Gamestop…
Most of us already know about the Wii’s rendition of Mario Baseball, Mario Super Sluggers. But has this game been made to suit everyone’s expectations? Nope, not really. Although Mario Sluggers is sure to be a good game while it lasts, there won’t be any “baseballing” through Nintendo’s wi-fi connection. The only means of multiplayer fun will rely on having friends or family come over for a game or two. After Mario Strikers proved to be a decent game with its wi-fi, why wasn’t Super Sluggers a candidate? This leaves much questioning on Nintendo’s part. As we anxiously wait for the Mario Super Sluggers release, let’s hope the adventure is worth the trouble.
