Today Super Mega Baseball 3, the cartoony baseball game from Metalhead Software, released a new update to the game dubbed ‘Update 4’. This new update includes a brand-new mode called Online Leagues with cross-play support for Switch, PC, Xbox One, and PS4 using the invite codes option. Additionally, Metalhead Software also announced that the game will be coming to Amazon’s new cloud gaming service, Luna.
As its name suggests, Online Leagues allows you to set custom leagues with up to 32 players via matchmaking. For the more competitive-minded, you can look for specific matches against specific users as well. Unlike Pennant Race though, Leagues’ default settings open all of the settings you can use: all Standard teams are usable, full visual customization, and full Ego (difficulty) settings. Together with Online League, Super Mega Baseball 3 is adding Watch Mode. With it, you can control various cameras around the stadium while simulating AI versus AI matches. ‘Update 4’ also features a surprise mode that has yet to be announced.
Metalhead Software co-founder Scott Drader showed his excitement in introducing cross-play to Super Mega Baseball 3 in a public statement,
We’re excited to give our users a really interesting way to recruit friends into the game. Between the cross-platform invite codes and the fact new users can get started in Online Leagues with just the trial or demo version of the game, we’re stoked for the potential this mode has to massively grow the [Super Mega Baseball] community.”
Super Mega Baseball 3 was first launched on May 13, 2020, for all current-generation platforms, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam. Despite its cartoony and colorful visual style, most user and professional reviews noted that the game managed to deliver a pretty in-depth baseball experience. Our review agrees that the game lets you have “real fun playing baseball” in any way you like it. What do you think of ‘Update 4’? Let us know in the comments below.
