SGO has posted a new developer interview with Christian Zuger, Richard Gibson, and Scott Drader from Metalhead Software, as they talk about the upcoming Super Mega Baseball 3.

Discussions include their reaction to the feedback from SMB 2, development difficulties, new feature decisions and more. Of note, the developers also reveal some new and interesting details on offseason roster management, that you won’t see in any other sports game.

Super Mega Baseball 3 will release on May 13, for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam for $44.99.

What’s Coming in Super Mega Baseball 3:

Step up to the plate and experience the deepest on-field simulation yet, comprehensive online and offline game modes including a brand new Franchise mode, and vastly refined graphics. Super Mega Baseball 3 offers a revamped user interface plus tons of new audio, team/character content, and stadiums with variable lighting conditions. All this with the same easy-to-learn gameplay that scales seamlessly from beginner to super mega levels of difficulty.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  1. FF to the 16:15 min mark, Scot describes a new online feature that has yet to be discussed. What's everyones thoughts?
    I think they have an online franchise mode coming.
    GAME CHANGER!!!
    I wish roster share of team share was in, but I doubt it. If I could pick one, id pick online franchise though. Playing a quick fun game with some of you guys would be great.
    Can't we already play online though?  You can't get the user name of someone you want to play  and play against them?  
    I rather open up the roster sharing than go deeper with online modes.  I get online but I need rosters lol.
    I’m really looking forward to this. I bought RBI this year for a baseball fix and because I wanted the official stadiums etc. It’s ok, but after reading this I loaded up SMB2 again and man, I forgot how good the baseball “feels” in that game, much more satisfying than RBI. I can mod in the MLB teams and just accept the lack of real stadiums, so count me in for SMB3 this year.

    I have read that people really want a "home run derby mode", and I really hope this is not it. There are many better options that it could be: online franchise, roster share, cross-platform co-op, 2v2 Pennant Race, or even an online draft mode (basically MUT Draft Champions). I think I would take anything over a home run derby mode lol.

    I’m really hoping for this. This game plays so well and fast online, it would easily best the best online baseball league I’ve done. And I doubt they limit us to using every team and forcing CPU owners.
    But, it really might not be that. I’m excited for this release regardless.

    Surprised to hear that aggregate/career statistics (for franchise) are not currently in the game.

    That’s really too bad. Franchise mode isn’t as fun without career stats, so I think I might just stick with SMB2 until a sale.

    I really think you’re missing out if you do that. Besides, this literally is exactly the kind of company that deserves our money compared to some others that don’t innovate, throw out a reshashed stale game, or play it overly safe every year. Hopefully you pull the trigger because to me, this is release 3 of a 4 year awesome game cycle.

    As a SMB veteran, I'd actually like a derby for single player with distances to chill out and mash bombs and try to hit it out of the park - that's one thing in SMB1 I remember being able to hit MASSIVE bombs a bit more often - I actually think in 2 you just couldn't hit it as far with 100% connect and power - maybe I'm wrong but in the ocean level it was cool jacking it right out of the park in Left Centre field as well as some of the other parks in certain parts.

    Putting it this way is making me rethink things. I’ll probably still at least wait for the team export since things are a little lean right now and I’m not sure it’s a good time to spend $45 when I’m still enjoying the last one a ton. The developers for this game are fantastic and I’ll try to support them when the time is right.
    Need roster sharing so we can simply download and play with real MLB rosters, or any other kind of fictional roster. Many I know simply wont convert until they can press a few buttons, and have MLB rosters, silly as that may be

    I know not everyone has a PC, but those that do, it is simple as a click to get rosters imported.
