Metalhead Software has announced the release of Super Mega Baseball 3 next month. The game will be released on multiple platforms on the same date in April.

Along with the release was an announcement trailer that features some of the gameplay and other upcoming content.

“Run up the score in a relaxed slugfest or push the limits of your reflexes in this refined baseball simulator. The third entry in the series features an all-new Franchise mode, major graphical enhancements, and on-field additions including pickoffs and situational player traits.” states the game’s summary on YouTube.

Super Mega Baseball 3 will include a revamped UI, new audio, team and player content, plus stadiums with variable lighting conditions that are perfect for seasoned veterans or newcomers. There are 14 new ballparks with day and night cycles.

The game will also have a brand new Franchise mode, where players will help build a team over multiple seasons. This includes aging, retirement, and signing or releasing free agents.

One of the most exciting features is cross-play across all release platforms. Gamers will be able to compete with others who own the game, no matter what platform they’re playing on.

The co-founder of the studio also shared good news for those who don’t like additional in-game purchases after buying a brand new game.

“This is the most well-rounded experience we’ve put together yet with a lot of content and a good variety of modes that cover single-player and online gameplay,” said Metalhead co-founder Scott Drader. “We’ve kept it simple – one purchase gets you the whole package, and there are no in-game purchases.”

A free demo and trial versions were also released. They contain an unlimited number of games in Pennant Race mode, which features competitive multiplayer. This trial version promotes short matchmaking times and an active userbase.

Pennant Race mode also allows players to compete online to win pennants and work their way up to higher divisions.

The Super Mega Baseball series has evolved since it was first launched in 2014 on PlayStation 3 and 4. The game was updated until the sequel was released in 2016. The second game even was even given an award by the National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers Awards for “Game, Franchise Sports.”

Super Mega Baseball 3 is scheduled to release in April for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch for $44.99.
