Super Mega Baseball 3 Is Available Now, And Its Generous Demo Lets You Play Online
Super Mega Baseball 3 is here, and it's keeping the online Pennant Race mode occupied by making it free.
Super Mega Baseball 3 is available now on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and a free demo has been released alongside the main game. But this demo isn't just designed to let new players decide whether they'd like to take the plunge on Metalhead Software Inc's third go at the sport--it will also keep the online Pennant Race mode populated at launch.
The demo gives players limited access to single-player and same-room multiplayer Exhibition mode matches (albeit with a 3-inning limit), but it also grants them unlimited matches in Pennant Mode, the new online mode. While demo players can't access the leaderboards, they'll be able to play against other players who either own the game or are just playing the demo themselves.
Here's a screenshot taken from the demo, showing what is and isn't available in the demo version.
Having tested the demo myself, there was a short wait to find a match at "beginner" level on Switch, but once I was in it ran smoothly. The exhibition mode also gives you a brief overview of the controls, although it will likely take time to master all of the game's nuances and timing, especially if you are new to the series.
The demo is available on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and Steam--as is the full-game, which costs $45.
