Mario and Sonic Baseball is a Mario and Sonic sport title for the Nintendo Switch and is the first installment of the Mario and Sonic Baseball series, being the first dedicated baseball game in the Mario and Sonic franchise. As with most Mario and Sonic Sports titles, it has traditional rules of the sport, but with special, Mario and Sonic-themed quirks and mechanics to differentiate itself from the real sport. This includes characters using Star Skill abilities to cause the ball behavior to behave differently; team captain's Star Skill abilities are unique and cause a wide variety of special effects such as attacking outfielders if batting and causing the pitched ball to behave erratically. Characters also have field abilities to differentiate themselves from other teammates. Chemistry is a feature unique to the Mario and Sonic Baseball games where players perform differently whether they are neutral, like, or dislike another character they are cooperating with. Additionally, most fields in the game have stage hazards that can affect outfielders such as the Piranha Plants serving as obstacles in Yoshi Park.

Aside from the main Exhibition mode, where players can play baseball freely with up to two players, players can participate in a single-player oriented Challenge mode that has them playing as a designated team captain and their preset team and recruiting other captains and team players to face off against Bowser and Dr. Eggman. This game also introduces the Toy Field mode where individual characters play on an interactive baseball field and get coins based on where the ball lands. Finally, players can play in Mario and Sonic-themed minigames that have baseball mechanics, such as hitting Bob-ombs to create fireworks or collecting gems in the baseball diamond while avoiding a Chain Chomp. Toy Field and Minigames mode are the only modes that can support up to four players.

Cutscenes

The game's opening begins with Mario, Sonic, Luigi and Tails playing catch. The four then see a wanted poster featuring Bowser and Eggman on it float from the sky. Elsewhere, Princess Peach, Amy Rose, Yoshi, Silver, Donkey Kong, Vector,  Wario and Knuckles all receive the same posters. They then decide for some baseball training.

In the match against Amy and Yoshi, Amy makes a home run, much to Yoshi's disappointment. In the match against Shadow & Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong uses his climbing abilities to catch the ball, but he realizes he is right above a Chain Chomp. It tries to attack him, making him drop the ball. Diddy Kong makes a bunt, but Wario goofs around with the ball.

Finally, in the match against Sonic and Metal Sonic, Sonic is running for home base for an inside-the-park home run, but Donkey Kong is on the verge of catching it as Peach, Amy, Daisy, Knuckles and Toad look away. Mario then flips on top of him, earning his team a point. When the teams change sides, Metal Sonic makes a home run as he and Waluigi celebrate Metal Sonic's home run and Donkey Kong pounds Wario to the ground while Mario and Sonic's team is getting tired. Then, Cream and Amy throw the ball and Blaze catches the ball, getting Waluigi out. Donkey Kong makes a powerful hit, but Luigi jumps from the edge of the spectator's bleachers, catching it. Mario throws the ball so fast that it catches on fire and Wario misses it. Even the machine that's used to calculate the ball's speed malfunctions. With all three outs, the teams change sides.

When Sonic is up to bat, he makes a swing. Then everyone (Including Daisy, Amy, Red Toad, Peach and Knuckles) looks in awestruck to where the ball is flying too. It then lands in the spectators' bleachers, making Mario and Sonic earn a home run and with their team winning the game. As everyone celebrates their victory, Bowser and Eggman are shown in the audience with no one noticing, foreshadowing the Challenge Mode.

The game's ending plays when Bowser and Eggman's team is finally beaten in Challenge Mode. It begins with Mario and Sonic entering a park at night, with Luigi, Tails, Princess Peach, Amy Rose, Red Toad, Chao, Sticks, and Diddy Kong excited over their arrival. Then Bowser and Eggman confidently arrives for a rematch, with characters such as Wario, Bowser Jr, Metal Sonic and Waluigi as his teammates. After everyone gets to their positions, all prepared for the re-match, Sonic makes the pitch. As the ball is thrown, the camera zooms in the ball, revealing the hidden words on it, "WE LOVE BASEBALL!", then the credits roll.

Gameplay

Mario and Sonic Baseball plays similarly to actual baseball; teams take turn batting to run on the bases and fielding. The team who bats hits the ball to the field while the fielders attempt to make the batters out. Once a runner touches the home base, their team earns a point. There are three outs on an inning for the batting team. Once a team gets three outs, they switch sides. Whichever team obtains the most points wins. Teams, led by specific team captains, can have up to nine members.

Exhibition mode

[1] Selecting characters for Exhibition Mode. [2] The start of a game in Exhibition Mode.

Exhibition mode is a standard one or two player game of baseball. Players fill out a roster and play a game. There are six different, unique stadiums in which players can choose to play in. The player, before playing in a stadium, can adjust options such as number of innings, mercy, which player bats first, and turning Star Skills on and off. Players can also adjust field settings, running, drop spots, and batting cursors.

Star skill

[3] Mario, using his Fireball as a Star Skill.

A new feature in this game is the ability to use a Star Skill. Star Skills can be activated either while pitching or while batting. Anyone in this game can use a Star Skill, but a team captain's Star Skill is superior to a sub-character's Star Skill. Team Captains have mostly different Star Skills, however, captains that usually pair with each other (Mario, Sonic, Luigi, Tails, Peach, Amy, Daisy and Blaze) have similar Star Skills. The amount of Star Skills that can be used is represented by 5 Team Stars in a meter. The amount of starting Team Stars depend on the sub-characters' chemistry with the team captain.

Star Skills can be replenished by hitting ball park features. They can also be replenished by striking a player out or making a batter reach a base safely when the words, "Star Chance!" appear. Team captains and sub-characters use up one Team Star while captains as members use up two Team Stars.

Challenge mode

[4] Wario in Challenge Mode.

Challenge mode (the main game mode of Mario and Sonic Baseball) is a game mode where one player selects one of ten Team Captains (Mario, Sonic Peach, Amy, Donkey Kong, Vector, Wario, Knuckles, Yoshi, and Silver) and plays with a pre-made team. The player wanders a map of the Mushroom Kingdom and can play minigames to earn rings and coins and spend at a Shop, where power-ups can be bought. The player's objective is to beat the other four captains in a game of baseball, on their own course. In order to get the others, the player should see the scout flags for the match. Scout flags are earned by completing scout missions, such as getting a hit, or scoring a run. If the scout mission is not completed, you will not earn the scout flag(s). There are scout flags next to the characters' faces. These flags serve as a purpose for recruiting other characters to the player's team. Each character has a set number of Scout Flags (up to five flags), with team captains requiring more Scout Flags (3 on the Mushroom/Chao level, 4 on the Flower/Spring level and Star/Emerald level, and 5 on the Special/Big Bang level) and sub-captains and characters of race (excluding the characters with color changes) needing the median number (2 on Mushroom/Chao and on Flower/Spring, 3 on Star/Emerald, and 4 on Special/Big Bang) and minor characters needing the least (1 on Mushroom/Chao, 2 on Flower/Spring and Star/Emerald, and 3 on Special/Big Bang).

The only exception is Donkey Kong's and Vector's teams, with all their teammates needing only one scout flag on the Mushroom Level/Chao Level. Bowser's and Eggman's teams cannot be recruited due to no scout flags; the only way to do so is when Bowser and Eggman's are selected as challenge mode captains. When Bowser or Eggman is chosen, the team players require the same number of flags as the captain when they are not chosen. Before the match, the opposing team's has the message "Round up Players" on their batting order screen. The order of the opposing team is random as well as the fielding position, with the exception of Bowser's and Eggman's teams, whose batting order and fielding positions remain the same. Players from other teams can be recruited after clearing certain missions. When the player recruits the captain they are not able to recruit other characters on their team unless the player faces Bowser Jr or Metal Sonic.

After beating all eight opponents, the path to Bowser Castle and Eggman's Lair opens, where the player is able to challenge Bowser's and Eggman's teams. Once Bowser's and Eggman's teams are defeated, Challenge Mode is cleared. Additionally, Bowser Jr and Metal Sonic. wanders the map. Coming in contact with him starts a short, one inning game where the player is put in various situations. If the player has had a captain join their team, they can unlock characters on their team from Bowser Jr. and Metal Sonic sometimes, they are ahead by a point and must defend their position. Other times, they are behind and must make a comeback. Challenge Mode is the only way to unlock characters.

There are eight difficulties to Challenge Mode: Mushroom, Chao, Flower, Spring, Star, Emerald, Special, and Big Bang. Once Special/Big Bang mode is cleared, Bowser and Eggman become playable captains. In Bowser/Eggman mode, Bowser and Eggman must beat the other five captains, and then play a team of nine of the ten captains and sub-captains, led by Mario or Sonic (the excluded character is random). Bowser and Eggman can recruit other characters, excluding the captains and sub-captains, and in Bowser/Eggman modes, Bowser Jr. nor Metal Sonic does not wander the map.


In order for players to star characters, they must complete specific Star Missions for a character in Challenge Mode. These are optional, but Superstar characters have an increase in stats. The number of Star Missions vary depending on the character; generally, team captains have more Star Missions than team players. Characters have a star title: these change when characters achieve more missions. In addition, challenges are confined to specific difficulties: some challenges are exclusive to Mushroom/Chao difficulty while others can be obtained if players cleared it in Star/Emerald difficulty. Miis are unlocked after completing the Big Bang Cup in Challenge Mode alongside Rosalina.

After they see their 100th comet, Rosalina looks back at her home planet, which then causes her to feel greatly upset and homesick, and then comes to terms with the fact that her own mother is dead. The young Luma who traversed with Rosalina tells her that her mother is always part of her, and then transforms into a comet that can traverse to Rosalina's home planet. Rosalina then declares that the Lumas are her family now, and that they will visit her home planet every once in one hundred years. But now she is playing baseball alongside Mario and his friends."

Though he's supposed to be in his youth, you can play them both at the same time for some reason. He has excellent foot speed but lacks power due to his diminutive size."

Chemistry is a unique feature to Mario and Sonic Baseball and its follow-up. Player chemistry emphasizes the relationships between characters. When forming a team, the relationship status between the captain and their teammates affects the number of power stars the team starts with. Additionally, in the game, good chemistry occurs with two friends. When a player throws a ball to their "buddy", the ball travels faster than a normal throw would. Additionally, a player hits better when one of their friends are on base. Examples are Mario, Sonic,  Luigi, Tails,  Diddy Kong, Sticks, Dixie Kong, and Espio. Good chemistry is symbolized by a musical note.

Bad chemistry occurs conversely. When a character throws a ball to a character they dislike, the ball travels more slowly and is sometimes out of line. Bad chemistry is symbolized when a small zigzag line appears next to the players. Examples of bad chemistry include Mario, Sonic, Bowser, Eggman, Luigi, Tails and King Boo. However, bad chemistry only occurs when the characters are fielding, and it does not happen all the time.

Items

The shop in Challenge Mode.

These items can only be bought at the shop in Challenge Mode. Coins are obtained for purchasing items by either defeating Bowser Jr. or Metal Sonic roaming across the map or winning minigames at the stadiums.

One-game items

The following items last for one game of baseball.

  • Nice Bat - Lets the player's character get hits more easily.
  • Home Run Bat - Lets the players get home runs easier
  • Power Bat - Increases the power of the character's swings.
  • Super Ball - Increases the speed of the character's pitches.
  • Lucky Glove - Increases the Fielding ability of the characters.
  • Dash Spikes - Makes the characters move faster.
  • Buddy Emblem - Increases friendship between the team. Normally incompatible characters will become more friendly to their rivals.
  • Superstar - Increases all stats and boosts friendship. Not available until every other item has been purchased at least once over the course of multiple Challenge Mode Playthroughs.

Permanent items

Once these items are purchased, they never need to be bought again. All of them cost 200 coins and they all do the same thing: give a character the ability to use their special hits and pitches. The difference is that each one powers up just one captain. They become active when the compatible character is on the team.

  • Red Fireball – Mario
  • Speed Ball - Sonic
  • Green Fireball – Luigi
  • Flying Ball - Tails

The Secret Map only appears if the player has beaten every minigame on the Challenge Mode overworld.

Stadiums

Stadiums Corresponding Minigame Description

Mario Stadium

Bob-omb Derby

A stadium belonging to Mario in a sun-drenched beachside area. There are no features in this stadium, so this stadium is well suited for pure baseball.
Sonic

Stadium

Egg-Bomb Derby A stadium that is similar to Mario's but it's near the Emerald Coast.

Peach Garden

Wall Ball

A courtyard ball park just outside Peach's Castle. Blocks float high above the fielders in this ball park. When a fly ball hits one of these blocks the ball will bounce and fly to a random direction. Brick Blocks can be destroyed while Note Blocks can't be destroyed. Blocks also give out Star Skills when hit.
Amy Garden Heart Hit A courtyard ball park that is similar to Peach's but Amy has a villa not a castle.

Wario Palace

Chain Chomp Sprint

A ball park owned by Wario in a middle of a desert. Chain Chomps guard the extreme right and left fields where the ball is fouled when landed upon there. Chain Chomps will attempt to bite the ball and they can hit characters if there is any contact. Sandstorm generators also float and make the balls change direction where it will land by generating whirlwinds. Star shaped dunes can be found in the sand and they will give a Star Skill when a ball rolls into it.
Past Village Emerald Catch A Stadium that appeared in Sonic Adventure.

Yoshi Park

Piranha Panic

A scenic ball park owned by Yoshi. Piranha Plants grow widespread across the field and attack anyone who goes near a stray ball. Yellow Piranha Plants do not harm players and they give out a Star Skill when hit.
Castle Town Fruit Feed A Stadium from Sonic 06.

Donkey Kong Jungle

Barrel Batter

A stadium set in a jungle, owned by Donkey Kong. Barrels get launched from a cannon and hit any player they touch. Klaptraps are also found in a stream and they will bite a player who comes too close. When hit with a ball, Klaptraps give out a Star Skill.
Seaside Hill Bomb Ball A new stadium appeared from Sonic Heroes.

Bowser Castle

Star Dash

A ball park inside Bowser's castle. Flying fireballs are found in chain link lava picts and they harm anyone who touches it. Thwomps also crash down to stop any would-be home run balls. Star panels give out Star Skills when they get touched in this stadium.


  • The player must complete Challenge Mode once to unlock Bowser Castle.
End of the World Egg Pawn Attack A Ballpark from Sonic 06 that makes easy home runs. But watch out for the flames.
  • The player must complete Challenge Mode once to unlock End of the World.

Toy Field

Main article: Toy Field


Toy Field

Toy Field is a mode up to four players can participate in a special field. Players take turns hitting pitched balls into a field made up of many spaces. Players earn coins depending on where the ball has landed. The player with the most coins win. Items can be used to either help or deter a player's progress depending if the ball landed on a ? area. Players can also get coins by striking a player out or catching a fly ball.

Minigames

Minigames are extra games outside of playing regular baseball. They usually feature baseball rules, but with a tweak added to it. Unlike exhibition, up to fours players can participate and players choose single characters instead of constructing a team. All minigames correspond to a stadium, such as Bob-omb Derby to Mario Stadium. Four difficulties are involved, though only one is available in the start for all minigames from easiest to hardest: Mushroom, Flower, Star, and Special. Flower and Star difficulties are simply harder than Mushroom, but Special usually has a tweak to it: players who play Special difficulty sets records if they beat the standard high score of the minigame.

When players beat Star difficulty for all minigames, they unlock Grand Prix Mode. Grand Prix mode is basically a collection of all minigames in this order, in Special difficulty: Bob-omb Derby(Mario and Sonic), Heart Hit, Wall Ball, Chain Chomp Sprint, Piranha Panic, Barrel Batter, Egg Pawn Attack and Star Dash. When completed, the player will earn a Grand Prix medal, which is stored in the Records mode.

Practice

This mode allows players to master and practice the basics of Mario and Sonic Baseball, including batting, pitching, fielding, and base running. The player can also go here to practice against a CPU with any character they choose. Options in the Practice mode include: Batting, Pitching, Baserunning, and Fielding, where the player is given instructions on the category, playing as Mario or Sonic. The last option, Free Play, is where the player can practice the four ways of playing baseball with any character they wish and as long as they want.

Records

The records for past MVPs.

This is where all outcomes of Exhibition, Challenge, Toy Field, and Minigame Mode are stored. The player can navigate through a number of menus to see all the information stored. The following are stored: past MVPs, challenge mode trophies, Grand Prix medals, star statuses, high scores for all minigames in Special difficulty, and high scores for Toy Field

Options

The options allow the player to modify game settings. Settings include turning on and off music, setting the sound scheme (Mono, Stereo, and Surround), and turning the Controller's Rumble Feature on or off.
