Bandai Namco has announced Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax for 3DS, following up on Pro Yakyuu Famista 2011 and Pro Yakyuu Famista Returns.

Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax is the 30th anniversary title in the series. For this game, the main phrase is “Create, Raise, Battle!”.

With acknowledgement from the Nippon Professional Baseball organization, data of actual pro baseball athletes is being used as of the 2017 season. Some new elements will be present for the first time.

The game adds members of the Meikyu-Kai (Golden Players Club) such as Sadaharu Oh and Shigeo Nagashima plus female athletes from the JWBL (Japan Women’s Baseball League). Team mascots will also be in as playable athletes.

Existing game modes will also be enhanced, such as Team Raising mode, Famista Quest (mini-game in which players collect athletes), and online versus.

For a limited time, a download code will be given for Famista Retro. This contains data of the 2017 season athletes from 12 teams. Also, there will be a code to obtain the legendary athlete Masahiro Yamamoto, who as the main promotion character of this game will appear on Namco Stars team as Yamamomo.

Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax launches in Japan on April 20. See the debut trailer below.

The Monster Hunter series is no stranger to collaborations. Even the latest entry, Monster Hunter XX, already has several partnerships announced.

The latest collaboration is for the Long Sword named Uranometria. It’s an original design from mangaka Hiro Mashima, the creator of Fairy Tail. The sword blade is drawn with a sparking sky of stars, and the scabbard’s silhouette will look like an ancient key.

During the latest episode of Capcom TV, Monster Hunter XX gameplay will be shown that uses the new weapon. Mashima will also be appearing as a guest.
