History

The first game, Super Mega Baseball, was released on December 16, 2014 as a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 cross-buy title on the US PlayStation Store.[2] It was released on the European PlayStation Store on April 1, 2015.[3]

An updated version called Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings was released on Xbox One on August 14, 2015 and it was released on Steam for PC on August 21, 2015.[4] The extra features from this version were released as free DLC for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2016.

Super Mega Baseball was a critical success, earning an average score of 85/100 on Metacritic, based on 14 reviews.[6] Gaming-Age gave the game a grade of "A," saying that "Because really, Super Mega Baseball is the sort of fun, easy to pick up diversion that video game baseball was at the very beginning of its lifespan -- and if it's as great as it is here, there's every reason to believe it can still fulfill that function."[7]IGN, meanwhile, gave the game an 8.1 "Great" rating, praising the game's sense of humor and easy pick-up-and-play gameplay, but criticising its presentation.[8] It was named "Sports Game Of The Year" by Polygon.[9]

Super Mega Baseball 2 earned an 81 Metacritic score for Xbox One based on 21 reviews.[16] Forbes gave it an 8.6/10 saying "While it's not a full-fledged AAA title, SMB 2 blurs the lines with its fantastic gameplay and mode depth."[17] Gaming Age gave it an A-, saying "There's a good argument to be made that it's the best baseball game of 2018."[18]
