This past Wednesday, LAist was lucky enough to head over to Dodger Stadium to party in Nintendo's VIP suite in celebration of Mario Super Sluggers, the latest sports release for Wii. With dodger dogs and Wii-motes in tow, various media gathered to check out how Nintendo would answer their last successful Mario-related soccer game, Mario Strikers Charged. Product developers and PR reps went through the motions of how to negotiate all our favorite Nintendo characters in swinging a bat, stealing bases, and jumping on our fellow outfielders to catch unruly homeruns.

After playing the game we were treated to an all-star seat at the Dodgers/Rockies game, and with the sun setting across Chavez ravine and a review copy of Super Sluggers, we couldn't think of a better way to promote a video game.

Super Sluggers comes out August 25th.
