We proclaimed Super Mega Baseball to be a super mega fun arcade-style baseball title, so we're totally thrilled that Metalhead Software has confirmed a sequel for current generation consoles and the PC.
Super Mega Baseball 2 sounds like it'll be quite a nice upgrade with new/enhanced features that include totally new character models, co-op and pvp online play, more customizations and more. SMB2 is currently scheduled for a 2017 release.
Have a look at some concept art and the teaser trailer below.

Make the jump from All Star to MVP next season as independent developer Metalhead Software today announces Super Mega Baseball 2, sequel to the award-winning Super Mega Baseball. Launching in 2017 on Xbox One, Steam, and the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Super Mega Baseball 2 builds upon the original with a more realistic presentation, a bevy of new customizable features and the launch of online multiplayer.
Major new features include:
- Revamped Graphics: Complete with enhanced character models, new and updated stadiums, and a modernized interface, Super Mega Baseball 2 has a fully rebuilt look that carries forward the personality and spirit of the original.
- Player & League Customization: Build the ultimate fantasy baseball league with full customization of your league, teams and players. Choose the number of teams in your league and customize each team’s logos and uniforms. Then dig deeper by customizing individual player stats and appearance.
- Online Co-op & PvP Play: Play cooperatively or head-to-head with online multiplayer. Or take it offline and play couch co-op or solo. In cooperative modes, teammates alternate batting/running each time at-bat and alternate pitching/fielding each inning, challenging ballplayers to stay on their toes in every play.
- Refined Gameplay: Just like its predecessor, Super Mega Baseball 2 features solid controls, but this time around features more refined gameplay and a more realistic scale.
“With the launch of Super Mega Baseball we received an overwhelming and positive response from the community, confirmation of sustained interest in this style of streamlined gameplay in sports games, and some excellent feedback.” said Metalhead co-founder Scott Drader. “That feedback was consistent with our roadmap for the product and that has made decisions on where to improve the game rather easy – we’re improving upon the original largely with the set of features most requested by the community.”
Super Mega Baseball’s initial iteration earned an 85 Metacritic score and “Sports Game of the Year” honors. The game and its sequel feature a unique “Ego” system, which offers fine-grained control of difficulty on a per-user basis, which has been widely praised for its ability to level the playing field in cooperative and competitive modes. This system pushes seasoned gamers to their limits while simultaneously providing a gentle introduction for beginners.
