Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings will hit a homer to the Xbox One and PC this summer

While we may be deep into the 2015 Major League Baseball season, that doesn't mean its too late to enjoy a solid baseball simulation at home. Today, developer Metalhead Software revealed that they will be bringing their acclaimed indie sport game, Super Mega Baseball, to the Xbox One and PC platforms. The new version, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, will have some extra content.

The original version of the game was released in the fall of 2014 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles. Here's a description of what Xbox One and PC gamers can expect:

  • Realistic Simulation and Physics: Don't be fooled by the light-hearted/comical presentation; the fundamentals of baseball are well represented and if someone isn't familiar with the rules, they will be after playing Super Mega Baseball.
  • Groundbreaking Difficulty System: Super Mega Baseball boasts an innovative difficulty control scheme called the Ego system. The Ego system offers a fine-grained control of difficulty on a per-user basis, which has been widely praised for leveling the playing field in cooperative and competitive modes. This system will push seasoned gamers to their limits while simultaneously providing a gentle introduction for beginners.
  • Up-to Four Player Local Co-op Play: In addition to solo play, players can try their hand at head-to-head, 2v1, 2v2 and co-op against the CPU. In co-op mode, teammates alternate batting/running each time at-bat, and alternate pitching/fielding each inning, meaning ballplayers need to be on their toes every play. To even games, players can use the Ego system to set up a competitive game between friends of any skill level.
  • Ultra Responsive and Blazing Fast Gameplay: Controls are easy to learn, but players will need to master jumping, diving, wall-catches, power-swings and cut-off plays to properly dominate friends. Short load times and a streamlined interface means most of the time is spent in the action, with nine-inning games taking around 20 minutes to play.
  • Full batting and pitching statistics: Most baseball statistics imaginable are available and ballplayers can use these to show off their MVP-quality skills.
  • Leveling System: Players tally up Starpoints for hits, strikeouts and catches during each game and Level Up once they collect enough points. Players can hire staff to train and coach their squad, improving skill attributes such as Power and Speed. Use that jacked up team to win at higher difficulties (and post higher leaderboard scores than friends)!
  • Player Customization: Customize the look and names of a team's players to create a ragtag crew of family and friends. Make as many aesthetic adjustments as you can imagine!

As far as new content, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings will include two new stadiums compared to the PlayStation version, plus some other unnamed new features and improvements.

  • This looks fun
  • Seems like it would've worked well as a Kinect game.
  • Screw this game not supporting after making Xbox fans wait a. Long time before we get it
  • That's not nice. Plenty of games do the same thing with Xbox so should PlayStation people not play those?
  • How bout Windows phone? Needs a good baseball game.
  • Sucks it's not real MLB teams. I may check it out tho..
  • WP dose not have a baseball game yet the other guys have many jeez
  • I like baseball so this is cool. I'll check it out.
  • My issue with baseball games is the prospect system. It's always awful. Most decent I can remember playing was in the all star baseball series games. MVP was bad, mlb2k was terrible (no idea how the mlb the show is). Lolol I remember high heat baseball and that one was just ridiculous.
  • The Show is by far the most difficult game I have ever played. Don't bother; you'll end up throwing your device against a wall.
  • BS...i loved that game when I had a Ps3. Im seriously considering getting a ps4 just for that game.
  • Most computer and console baseball games are just not any fun to play. Glad to see RBI Baseball and this game are finally trying to change that.
  • XBOX is my entertaning console.... it is amazing Great news for Great Game
  • Jesus...can we get a real baseball game on Xbox One? This looks like a joke.
