Back in August, Konami announced Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu Heroes for the Nintendo 3DS. It’s the latest entry in the Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu series, and the first one to be released on a Nintendo platform in 7 years (since 2009 to be more precise). It will be released on December 15th in Japan.
It’s been quite a while since we last heard about the game: in fact, there hasn’t been anything at all since the trailer revealed at the Tokyo Game Show, back in… September. But it looks like we’re finally about to get some more details about the game… and it’s high time we did, since the game comes out in about a month!
Today, the official website was updated, and it was announced that Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu Heroes would get a demo version on November 30th (about two weeks before launch). What will this demo include? We don’t know for know, but Konami will most likely share some details closer to launch.
Just above, we explained that Konami hasn’t shared anything at all about the game since TGS, but it’s not quite true. There was a small update for the official website, with more characters revealed:
- Tachibana Mizugi
- Tomozawa Ryou
- Deita Daisuke
- Karasuma Takemitsu
- Chouno Hanjirou
Here’s some screencaps:
A quick reminder: in Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu Heroes, you get invited to a legendary baseball tournament, located on islands where baseball is said to have been born. The winner of that tournament will apparently be able to get their hands on the “Ultimate Baseball Technique”. To win, you have to create your ultimate dream team, by using the islands’ facilities to train your favorite characters.
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu Heroes (3DS) comes out on December 15th in Japan. The demo will be released on November 30th. Our Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
Thanks GamesTalk for the heads up!
