Square enters the sports game arena on PlayStation2 with its Gekikuukan Pro Baseball, scheduled fora March release in japan. The game looks incredibly realistic--you can tell that the PS2 makes a huge difference just in the way the characters move and the way players' uniforms wrinkle.
As soon as the pitch is delivered, the catcher becomes transparent (but still outlined) so you get a good view of the ball. Action is fast-paced and there's plenty of little animations after plays and home runs which add to the visual style of the game--looks a lot like you're watching a real game being broadcast on TV. Of course, the downside for those of us in the U.S. is that all the teams in the game are from Japan--but this is the first glimpse we've gotten of a baseball game on PS2. Now it'll be even more interesting to see what companies like Electronic Arts have in store for us.
