Mario's Baseball League (also known as マリオのスーパースターベースボールリーグ Mario's Superstar Baseball League in Japan) is a Super Mario series title for the Wii U, set for a Winter 2016 release as the third Mario Baseball title, succeeding Mario Super Sluggers. The third title changes the idea of the past two with a "League", where you can choose a captain at the beginning of the game (which can be changed anytime) and recruit players to play on your team, as you fight other players online (or locally) to increase your rank. Also added to the game is more customization, a new story mode, and more.

Making Your Team

Online Rankings

As you win exhibition or tournament matches online, you can gain points to boost your online ranking; as such, losing matches can cause you to lose points. You start out with a BR (Baseball Rating) of 1000, which increases or decreases depending on matches won or loss. A specific BR will merit a new rank and prize money.

  • Win Exhibition: +5
  • Lose Exhibition: -5
  • Win Tournament Round: +10
  • Win Tournament Finals: +35
  • Lose Tournament: -15

Note that, upon reaching a rank, you cannot go down a rank no matter how many BR points you lose, as you can only increase your ranking once you have it.

One thing that returns from the previous title; you can choose to turn on or off items in-game so you can mess with the opposing team or give boosts to your teammates, where you can use the Wii Remote/GamePad to aim at players. Items activate depending on the player at bat and the player up next's chemistry; positive chemistry is 100%, negative chemistry is 0%, and neutral chemistry is a random 30%-70% chance. There are 15 items in-game; 10 are usable by default, while 5 can be unlocked in the shop.

Dugout Shop
