An April launch is still the plan, but due to complications of COVID-19, it might slip a week or two into May.
The brand-new Franchise mode in Super Mega Baseball 3 offers a unique spin on the tried-and-true sports game mode. A new video from the developer Metalhead Software shows off the details of the new mode.
The game, set to launch simultaneously on Switch and a variety of other platforms, was slated to launch in April and while hope springs eternal, Metalhead said "Industry-wide changes due to COVID-19 have led to some logistical delays in the game’s release. Metalhead is not ready to announce a change from the April window yet, but is optimistic that if there is a delay it will be minor."
The latest video update digs into more than Franchise mode, though. A variety of small improvements have been made to modes from the previous games like Season and Elimination. Additionally, players can import their custom-made teams from Super Mega Baseball 2 into the sequel.
Lastly, Metalhead Software teased there is a "major online gameplay feature" that is under development for a post-launch release and will be discussed before the launch.
Super Mega Baseball 3 is set to launch on Nintendo Switch soon for $44.99. A free trial will be available day and date that will let players play the online Pennant Race mode to their heart's content.
