Metalhead Software has announced Super Mega Baseball 3 will release on May 13, for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam for $44.99. The team has also released their third video.

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.
  • Take in the sights and sounds of 14 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).

While no release date has been given for the Super Mega Baseball 3 demo and trial versions, they will allow users to play an unlimited number of games in the competitive online Pennant Race mode, play Exhibition games against the AI, or experiment with the customization suite.

  1. Yeah, I’m getting super excited for this. Honestly, the addition of an online customizable franchise is a huge draw. I liked playing the first two, but mostly dropped off.
    For me, sports games are about online competition. Solo play was for practice and scouting. While one off games work in most sports, baseball only makes sense in a season of some sort, as you compete against teams that also gave to manage resource use over the course of a season.
    I’ve started playing a ton of SMB2 in prep. It still astounds me just how dialed in and perfect the gameplay is from both strategic and pure fun points of view.
    I don’t need MLB licenses, because they do a great job of not only creating what feels like a living world of players, but you can edit them however you want.
    My plan is to try and start a small online league based on pop culture. Teams choose something pop culture reference they like, and name the players after characters and such.
    This game has me so hyped. Still playing 2 and loving it. When you can set difficulty from 1-100 in 4 different skill areas its a new challenge everyday. Adding Franchise mode, makes my drool with excitement.
    I can't wait. I only recently discovered SMB 2 and fell in love (and i've only played the demo)!. Can't bring myself to pay $30 for SMB 2, to turn around and pay $45 for SMB 3 a few weeks later.
    I'm starting to really think through how I want to play the game. Generally in sports games I like to place myself, and maybe 1 or 2 others on a team. Then sprinkle other friends/public figures on other teams, to keep those teams interesting and give me something to look forward to in those matchups.
    Always fun, and an interesting talking point to say, "man, I put Ash Ketchum on Arsenal in my season, and he lit us up today."
