Victoria, British Columbia – May 1, 2018 – It’s time to jump back into the critically acclaimed Super Mega Baseball series with today’s launch of Super Mega Baseball 2 by Metalhead Software. Launching on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and PC via Steam for $29.99 USD, Super Mega Baseball 2 arrives with gorgeous new visuals, deep team and league customization, and long-awaited online multiplayer modes. Starting today Super Mega Baseball 2 is available for the month of May via Xbox Live Games with Gold. Metalhead is also releasing today three DLC packs with additional cosmetic customization content as an optional way for fans to show added support.

Whether a rookie or baseball purist, Super Mega Baseball 2 packs a mode for everyone. Compete in ranked Pennant Race mode (1v1), dominate friends in arranged matches (1v1, 2v1, 2v2), or take on the AI (solo, local co-op, online co-op) – all kept fair by Ego, the genre’s most flexible difficulty system.

“With the major leap in production values and the addition of online play, we’re excited for the possibility of SMB2 reaching a much broader audience than the original,” said Metalhead Co-Founder Scott Drader. “We expect SMB2’s inclusion in Games with Gold at launch to help it find that audience and establish a solid player base for online play right from the get go.”

Super Mega Baseball’s initial iteration earned an 85 Metacritic score and “Sports Game of the Year” honors. Building on the core features of the original, the sequel includes:

  • Overhauled presentation including 8 stadiums built from the ground up, more realistically scaled character models, and new, more athletic player animations
  • Comprehensive customization of leagues, team logos and uniforms, and player gear
  • New competitive and co-operative online modes, utilizing dedicated servers
  • Cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One, and between PC and PS4 in Pennant Race mode
  • Refined baseball simulation with visceral physics and realistic play outcomes
  • Enhanced image quality on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro
