Konami has revealed that the next entry in its Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball series will feature Super Mario-themed content.
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball Heroes - which hits the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on December 15th - will allow players to dress up the famous Power Pro Kun as Mario. As well as being a dead ringer for the famous Italian plumber, Pro Kun gets the special "Fire Ball" throw and "Fire Shot" swing, as well as that iconic Super Mario theme.
If you have a Japanese 3DS then you can check out the game's demo on November 30th.

Wait.........Konami still make games??? 😂😂😂
We need more Baseball games here in Europe, especially of this silly-arcadish type T_T; We didn't even get Super Sluggers DX
Not even try to raise my hopes of seeing Konami releasing this here, but good thing that at least Mario Sport SuperStar is coming next year
MLB Power Pros for Wii was a good baseball game.....I was disappointed that it never made it to Wii U.
@fox_mattcloud Yeah. This franchise happens to be the best-selling one, which is why it gets lots of love (from the corporate suits).
By the way, the title is a bit misleading since it implies that the new entry is for the New 3DS.
We need more baseball here in the US for Nintendo systems. Last fun one was the Mario Wii game years ago.
@fox_mattcloud I just clicked on the article to ask the exact same thing
Konami back again ?
Consider Konami will contribute for Switch.
I won the first of the 2 Wii games of this when they actually ported it over. It's a great series. I want it for my 3DS. Make it an eshop exclusive if you have to, but I want this!
@Krisi I thought Konami made PES, Metal Gear (if that's what you wanna call it now) and those stupid slot machines and that was it. I thought they didn't see a future in actual videogames anymore because Konami are Konami and Konami have clearly lost the plot #NibelsnarfKonami
I wish this game would come to the US. However, all previous entries that were released here flopped so it is highly unlikely.
So far, there is NO Cute Cartoonish Boxing games on 3DS. Too bad, Animal Boxing NDS was the only one Cute Boxing game that I really interested. 3DS really need some cute Boxing games like that. Well, if I can say some minority sports should be on 3DS too.
I'd for sure get this, but we probably won't get it and it's fine because Mario Sports Superstars is coming at some point!
Eh...Konami also create one of phenomenal games, DDR !
Sure, DDR still exist until today.
Dance Dance Revolution Ace.
Also with other Bemani games such as BeatMania IDX, Guitar Freaks, DrumMania, jubeat, Sound Voltex, Para Para Paradise, Pop n Music, etc. Those are BEMANI series that I really LOVE it. Well, too bad. Naoki Maeda, the maestro behind DDR names moved to Capcom, create CrossxBeats. Bemani games will never be same again without him.
Is this the same as MLB power pros for the wii?!? I loved those games, much more than the show for some reason, hope this makes it west!
I wish this series had continued in the US.
I loved the Wii games.
@Jaredfrogman MLB Power pros was awesome! I really hope to see this return to west again
Would be an insta-buy for me if this ever came state-side.
I remember when this series was shown in a promotional video for the N64... it hasn't really changed much, has it? Considering what Konami has done to the rest of their franchises, that's probably a good thing.
I really liked Power Pros on the Wii. I would love for it to come to the US.
That is cute. I have a few of the SNES games.
