Here are the details:
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2016
Due out in spring 2016 in Japan, the latest entry in the Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball series (first teased at the Tokyo Game Show) introduces a new “Power Fest” mode. In this mode, players will train their team while winning games in a tournament held on the south island. You’ll only play the important scenes of each game, including critical moments and chances. You’ll play your way through the Success characters of the previous 19 games, including the app. You’ll earn experience points and items by defeating opponents, as well as acquire players. You can also befriend managers.
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2016 is 75 percent complete.
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball Success Special
Due out in spring 2016 as a free-to-play game with micro-transactions, this game’s main mode is the series’ familiar “Success” mode. Players can enjoy a Success mode different from Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2016.
While it will start off with the “Powerful High School Chapter,” the training system is different, and additional scenarios will be released one after the other.
The familiar event deck system from Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2013, 2014, and the app will be included.
The characters you train can be registered for Power Challenges, and you can compete with other players in online rankings.
You can also use the characters you raise in Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2016.
Development on Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball Success Special is 75 percent complete.
In a staff interview, the developers said that while there is no difference between the gameplay, the PlayStation 4 versions of these games will have significantly better graphics.
