Mario Superstar Baseball, known in Japan as Super Mario Stadium Miracle Baseball (スーパーマリオスタジアム ミラクルベースボール Sūpā Mario Sutajiamu Mirakuru Bēsubōru) is a sports game that was developed by Namco and NOW Production and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. The game was created in the vein of other Mario sports games such as Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour and Mario Power Tennis. The game has a sequel, Mario Super Sluggers for the Wii.

Gameplay mainly focuses on the player assuming the role of any Mario series character to challenge any opposing teams compatible in the Challenge Mode, the final being Bowser, having baseball matches to see who will win the Cup of the mode. Other playable modes include Exhibition Mode, in which players choose the leader and the other rosters in the team and challenge another team to a single baseball match, and Minigames where the player must complete a certain mission. A common power-up in the game is a charged swing, a hit by a baseball bat performed by a character that will give the ball a strong hit, causing the length of a normal hit baseball to be twice as powerful.


Black Texture/Shadow Problems

In the stands and below flags along the walls only the left side of the stadium, there is some sort of odd shadow. The practice area also has an area that is completely blacked out similarly. This occurs in OpenGL, D3D9, and D3D11. Only Software can render it appropriately, but even then it has a black bar along the bottom and extreme slow speed. See issue 6009.


This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
