Super Mega Baseball 2

I'm sure everyone is aware this was delayed about 6 months. There's been a few videos on updates that look really good. This game (thanks Jay'!) was brought to my attention and it was a real winner. Great physics, game play and graphics (which have been toned down from the cartoon like original players).

My wish, that somehow MLB would be made aware of this great game and offer up a license contract so they could finally offer a good baseball game to the X-Box catalogue (and get rid of RBI Baseball!).

Wow, this looks way better than the original. If we're never getting another Power Pros game over here then Super Mega gets my money every release.

Yeah, I'm pretty pumped for SMBB2. Not gonna lie. I'm secretly hoping the delay was a secret deal to get MLB licensing. Regardless, I have a lot of hope that the online aspect of the game is actually going to be a lot of fun. I'm hoping we can get a league going here that was similar to the APF2K8 league we had going.

Here's the videos released so far:

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I really hope they don't license it with MLB. I love the RPG aspect of the game.

Seconded. Loved the first game almost as much as MLB Power Pros and maybe more in some ways. Looking forward to it. I liked how streamlined it was and it got right to the heart of the game. While a MLB license sounds good (and worked in Power Pros), I really like the emergent stories that come out of the fictitious characters that don't carry any of the real world baggage and preconceptions. I also like the plans to slightly increase the roster by adding two pitchers and another position player.

What platform will most of you be looking to get this on? I am thinking XBone personally. Man, this would be so nice to have on the Switch.

Will be getting this on XB1 day one.

I do get what what you are saying about going with the fictional guys, and that is a fun aspect.

Personally, I just like familiarness real stadiums, teams, and players. I’d be completely okay with the RPG stuff allowing it to go in any direction. I don’t need it to be sim and realistic potentials and such.

One thing I did see was that while it will have online play, it looks like online league play will not be in, which is a bummer.

I was hoping for a good six man online league like we did with APF2K8, where the fun was competing with friends, not worrying about sim quality gameplay.

Dang, too bad. That would have been fun, especially with the hot/cold streaks and pitcher fatigue carrying over from game to game.

I will be getting it on PC. I played the crap out of SMB. I hit me right in the Baseball Stars nostalgia feels. Blowfish for life!

I saw a Jan 24 tweet of theirs that they were testing an on-line multiplayer function(!)

The plus were for multiplayer in this edition. What is not in the plans, so far, is an ability to run an online league, which kind of blows.

This is a flimsy report, but...I got a quick reply from the company about my enquiry to on-line leagues, '...

In versus play it'll be exhibition games and ranked/matchmaking games only. More info to come on that!

...' (I had asked on Facebook about wishing for on-line league capabilities and he tweeted this comment back to me)

So not sure what he's actually saying, but there it is.

I'm pretty sure that means no leagues. It will be more like a score chasing mode, where wins will get you ranked higher and such.

About 3 hours ago, on their Tweeter page, they have a VERY short video of a baseball stroke from the game. The stroke is very sweet to look at:) (BUT don't blink!)

Look at beautiful upgraded stadiums.
