Art improvements showcased for Super Mega Baseball 2 and release month revealed

Posted May 26th, 2017 at 7:00 am

Metalhead Software today released a new video for Super Mega Baseball 2 with this one focusing on the improvements that have been made to stadiums, characters, and animations. Without licensing there’s a certain creative freedom the developers can take but they’re also responding to feedback received from consumers about the look of the first game.

SMB2 is the sequel to one of the biggest surprises of 2014, with the original finishing near the top of numerous Sports Game of the Year lists. The follow-up will add online play, enhance the character models, refine gameplay, and provide greater customization features. It’ll also “maintainĀ and improve the game’s fantastic original mechanics (Ego system, mojo mechanic, infield slow down, pitching system).”

Unfortunately release is being targeted for September, and with at least seven other major (all licensed) sports games releasing right in that same abbreviated late-summer window the decision is absolutely devastating for its prospects at having any success.
