Family Stadium, or Famista, is a series of baseball videogames by Namco. The name comes from the Family Computer, or Famicom, the original console on which the games were released.

The games feature many real life players as well as fictional ones, both original and guests from other series, but in all games the players are represented in a simple stylized way, without much difference between them besides the uniform.

Most games were only released in Japan, except for four, localized in North America with different titles: R.B.I. Baseball (Arcade, NES), Extra Bases (Game Boy), Batter Up (Game Gear) and Super Batter Up (SNES).

Other "Stadium" games

The Family Stadium games were adapted to non-Nintendo consoles under different titles; since they are basically the same games we can still consider them part of the same series. For this reason the series is sometimes called the Stadium series instead. The Stadium games that we consider part of the series are:

  • Gear Stadium (April 5, 1991), Game Gear. Released in North America as Batter Up.
  • Gear Stadium Heiseiban (October 20, 1995), Game Gear.
  • Wonder Stadium (March 11, 1999), WonderSwan.
  • Wonder Stadium '99 (September 30, 1999), WonderSwan.

The same may be applied to the World Stadium series, but since it features a large number of titles produced independently, rather than being ports, we consider it a spin-off of the Family Stadium series instead.

Other media

A series of adventure book based on the series was published only in Japan between 1988 and 1990.

Some merchandising items were also released, including a series of collectable cards.

Links to other series

Note: all games in the series feature a Namco Stars team, including players named after classic Namco games, characters and other properties; Famista Online introduced unlockable "player cards", showing an image of the player, in some cases depicted as a caricature (the generic Famista player only with some exclusive clothing and facial features), in some cases represented through an actual photo of the player, or an artwork if it's a fictional character; regardless of the player's depiction on the card, all games show them as generic people during gameplay; based on this there are three types of guest characters in the games:

  • Players named after classic characters: these only create an out-universe, or Type 3, link.
  • Caricature characters: these create an in-universe, or Type 1 link only when the character represented is a humanoid being; players named after non-humanoid characters still create a type 3 link when in caricature form.
  • Artwork characters: these create a type 1 link.

The origin of the player names are given in official guidebooks, and are therefore confirmed, despite sometimes being very ambiguous.

Mascot links: Najave from the Namco Namja Town theme park appears during a homerun in the Namco stadium in Famista 64 and as a player in Famista Online, Pro Yakyuu Famista 2011 and Famista Dream Match; Uketsuke Komachi, the robot receptionist from Namco's headquarters appears as a player in Famista Online (altough this might count as non-fiction since Uketsuke is a really existing robot); Pandameko (one of Bandai Namco's mascots) appears as a player in Famista Online 2009 and Famista Dream Match.
