Ready to play ball? Another bat-and-ball game for these chibi players! For a brief background of baseball or yakyū in Japanese: Baseball is played between two teams of nine players. Each team will take turns in batting and fielding. In batting, the team must score runs by hitting the ball with a bat and must running counter-clockwise around the four bases.
In the 2018 edition, this game includes Pawafuru Festival. This mode is where the players battle in a tournament against Success characters of the successive generations. The place of the battle is in a passenger boat named “Queen of Festival.” Also in this edition, the roulette decides all. The roulette decides the conditions for befriending characters from the opposing characters and the team for the field without a designated hitter.
Konami announces that the 2018 edition of Jikkyou Powerful Pro adds another announcer to Hideo Doumae, Hisashi Shimizu, and Muneatsu Atsumori. However, the announcer’s name is not yet revealed. Ohh! An element of thrill and surprise for Powerful Pro fans out there!
