Batter up!

Bases Loaded is considered to be something of a classic with North America NES players, and many rejoiced when the title got a new lease of life via the Virtual Console service a while back.

Those same fans will no doubt be tickled pink to discovered that the game is getting a sequel of sorts in the form of Bases Loaded 2016.

Expected to launch in Japan this year - where the franchise is known as Moero!! Pro Yakyuu - the game uses an 8-bit graphical style and will be launched as a 3DS eShop title for 864 Yen. It will include a two-player mode via a local connection and will allow players to create their own athlete and team using the game's editor mode.


Mebius and Clarice Games are the ones behind the new version, and a PS4 edition was announced last year.

There's no word on whether or not we can expect to see this game in the west.
