Super Mega Baseball 3 Will Add A New Online Mode

Metalhead Software today announced a new online mode for the highly-anticipated Super Mega Baseball 3. Custom Pennant Race mode will expand on the existing Pennant Race mode to let players organize a private cross-platform Pennant Race and invite up to thirty-two friends to join and play.

Releasing on May 13 for PlayStation 4, XboxOne, Nintendo Switch, and Steam at $44.99 USD, SMB 3 will not have the new mode at launch. Custom Pennant Race will be added with a free post-launch update in early Summer 2020. Here is a trailer for the new mode:


We have additional details to share from Metalhead for Super Mega Baseball 3. You will be able to:

  • Challenge your hand-eye coordination or relax and hit dingers with fluid gameplay that scales seamlessly from novice to beyond-expert levels of difficulty.
  • Apply and refine your baseball instincts with a sophisticated baseball simulation featuring new pickoff and stealing mechanics, wild pitches/passed balls, designated hitters, and situational player traits.
  • Take in the sights and sounds of fourteen richly detailed ballparks, each featuring unique day, night and alternate lighting conditions.
  • Guide an evolving team to greatness over multiple seasons in the all new Franchise mode featuring player development, aging, retirement and signing/releasing of free agents (1vCPU, 2vCPU, local or online).
  • Compete online to win pennants and climb to higher divisions in the cross-platform Pennant Race mode (1v1, online only, controller only).
  • Create your ideal league with a comprehensive customization suite that includes season length/structure, team names/uniforms/logos, and player names/appearance/attributes.
  • Play or simulate any combination of games/teams in customized Seasons and Elimination brackets, solo or with friends (1vCPU, 2vCPU, 1v1, 2v1, 2v2, CPUvCPU, local or online).
  • An SMB2 Team Import tool will allow users to import their custom rosters from SMB2 to use in SMB3. This feature will come in an update soon after launch.

As you can see, Metalhead has really put forth a home run effort. In case you haven’t see it, below is Super Mega Baseball’s announcement trailer for you to check out. See you at the (virtual) ballpark May 13th!
