Cactus 2.0!
This article has just been started and needs the article basics added.
Help us out and add them.
To do:
  • Add known unused animations/enemy models/textures and investigate other remnants.
  • English, Spanish, and French text differences between the US and European versions.

Mario Sports Mix is a game about playing real sports games instead of video games, in a video game.


English Translation Differences
The US and European translators can't seem to agree with each other.

Early Textures
The Scrapped Dutch version is a Goldmine of unused elements.

Unused Stage Intro THPs

In the game's /movie/ folder there are THP video files with the suffix '_c' for Smash Skate. They contain preview camera videos (when selecting a stage) for old versions of the stages and are unused in the final game.

Unused Bahamut Boss

Stored in /chr/n08C00.mdl and n08XX.mot The only existing animations he has are n08_DUMMY and n08_IDLE.

Unused Stages

Inside the game's /menu/bin/ folder there is an UnLock.bin file containing a XML with the rules for unlocking the many characters in this game. It make reference to stages 18 and 19, that are not present in the game:


Crystal Grande. Likely some stage based on the "Great Crystal" from Final Fantasy XII.


Super Mario Galaxy. Likely some stage based on the game of the same name.

Both these stages have entries in the game's .msbt files under UsEn.bin, UsSp.bin and UsFr.bin, but they are blank.

Internal Project Name

It appears that the game was called Mario Sports Wii during development. This is indicated by some unused textures, some internal strings and file names such as MSW.sel.
