Scott Drader, co-founder of Metalhead Software, announced on the PlayStation Blog that their new game, Super Mega Baseball, would be coming soon to the PS3 and PS4. Naturally the one question on everybody’s minds was “What about the Vita?” And surprisingly, Mr. Drader had an answer. “It’s in the works.”
Super Mega Baseball is an unlicensed baseball sim, so there are no real teams or players. This is actually seems to be a good thing (in my opinion) as it adds a little more humor and fun into a sports game. The game provides classic baseball gameplay but also allows you to completely customize your players, your team, your everything. It is very reminiscent of SNK’s Baseball Stars on the NES. And just like that Nintendo classic of old, you will also be able to load your team up with female players.
Drader says that the game will be fast and fluid, and that all of the cut-scenes and animations can be skipped. This should allow the player to finish a nine inning game in around 20 minutes.
There’s no word yet on a launch date for Super Mega Baseball on the Vita (or even an official confirmation) but the game is expected to be released on the PS3 and PS4 this fall.
In the meantime, check out the official trailer.
