Late in 2014, Super Mega Baseball was released, and quickly became a fan favorite sports title on the PlayStation 4. While somewhat cartoony in presentation, players raved about the gameplay mechanics and customization. Not resting on their laurels, Metalhead Software has announced Super Mega Baseball 2 will be released some time in 2017. Promising “a more realistic presentation, a bevy of new customizable features and the launch of online multiplayer’, we anticipate this title will eclipse the success of the sleeper hit initial game. Please see the full press release below.

Victoria, British Columbia – September 28, 2016 – Make the jump from All Star to MVP next season as independent developer Metalhead Software today announces Super Mega Baseball 2, sequel to the award-winning Super Mega Baseball. Launching in 2017 on Xbox One, Steam, and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Super Mega Baseball 2 builds upon the original with a more realistic presentation, a bevy of new customizable features and the launch of online multiplayer.

Major new features include:

• Revamped Graphics: Complete with enhanced character models, new and updated stadiums, and a modernized interface, Super Mega Baseball 2 has a fully rebuilt look that carries forward the personality and spirit of the original.

• Player & League Customization: Build the ultimate fantasy baseball league with full customization of your league, teams and players. Choose the number of teams in your league and customize each team’s logos and uniforms. Then dig deeper by customizing individual player stats and appearance.

• Online Co-op & PvP Play: Play cooperatively or head-to-head with online multiplayer. Or take it offline and play couch co-op or solo. In cooperative modes, teammates alternate batting/running each time at-bat and alternate pitching/fielding each inning, challenging ballplayers to stay on their toes in every play.

• Refined Gameplay: Just like its predecessor, Super Mega Baseball 2 features solid controls, but this time around features more refined gameplay and a more realistic scale.

“With the launch of Super Mega Baseball we received an overwhelming and positive response from the community, confirmation of sustained interest in this style of streamlined gameplay in sports games, and some excellent feedback.” said Metalhead co-founder Scott Drader. “That feedback was consistent with our roadmap for the product and that has made decisions on where to improve the game rather easy – we’re improving upon the original largely with the set of features most requested by the community.”

Super Mega Baseball’s initial iteration earned an 85 Metacritic score and “Sports Game of the Year” honors. The game and its sequel feature a unique “Ego” system, which offers fine-grained control of difficulty on a per-user basis, which has been widely praised for its ability to level the playing field in cooperative and competitive modes. This system pushes seasoned gamers to their limits while simultaneously providing a gentle introduction for beginners.

In addition, we have the teaser trailer below. Super Mega Baseball 2 will hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam in 2017. Stay tuned to PS Nation as details emerge.
