Super Mega Baseball Sets Release Date of December 16 on PS4 and PS3

Posted December 3rd, 2014 at 10:45 am


First announced back in September the unlicensed digital game Super Mega Baseball now has an official release date and pricing details. The game is set to arrive for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on December 16. It’ll go for $20 and is cross-buy meaning once it’s purchased for one it’ll be owned for both systems.

Despite the game not having any online play, which was initially disappointing news, the arrival of Share Play with PS4 could provide that H2H online experience depending on individual connection speeds. Share Play has worked tremendously well with the majority of games but a few – most notably MLB: The Show – have sadly proven to be unplayable through it.

The sim-arcade hybrid Super Mega Baseball features: 

2-4 player couch co-op/competitive
This can be head-to-head, 2v1, 2v2, or co-op vs the CPU. When you’ve got a teammate, you’ll be alternating batting/running each at-bat, and alternating pitching/fielding each inning. This means everyone’s involved and you’ll have to be on your toes. There’s per-user, sliding difficulty settings, meaning you’ll be able to easily setup a close game between friends of any skill levels.

Ultra responsive, blazing fast gameplay
In a nutshell, you’re going to spend most of your time telling your players what to do. All the cinematic stuff is skippable and you’ll be able to cut through 9-innings in 20 minutes. The basic controls are ultra-easy to learn, but you’ll need to master jumping, diving, wall-catches, power-swings, and cut-off plays to properly dominate your friends.

Realistic simulation and physics
Backed by a solid baseball simulation with accurate physics, realistic statistical outcomes, and full tracking of batting and pitching statistics across individual games and seasons.

Leveling System
Earn Starpoints for your in-game achievements, level-up, and hire the best coaches and trainers to improve your team over the longer term.

Team Customization
Fully customize the name and appearance of your squad to your heart’s delight with the in-game character editor.
