This Week's Japanese Game Releases: Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Pro Yakyu Famista 2020, more

Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Pro Yakyuu Famista 2020 are the highlights of this week’s Japanese video game releases.

A celebration of 3D Super Mario games for the series’ 35th anniversary, Super Mario 3D All-Stars includes the 1996-released Super Mario 64, 2002-released Super Mario Sunshine, and 2007-released Super Mario Galaxy, as well as a music player featuring a total of 175 tracks from all three games. The physical edition will be sold in limited quantities, and the digital edition will only be available to purchase until March 2021.

Pro Yakyuu Famista 2020 is the latest entry in Bandai Namco’s baseball game franchise, featuring high-definition graphics that reproduce the stadium atmosphere with flashy effects, as well as an improved pitching and batting screen. In addition to 12 professional teams, players from nine other leagues are also playable. There is also an RPG-style single-player story mode where players take on the role of protagonist Puck and must prevent the invasion of baseball-loving aliens from Planet Metal, as well as a “Famista Party” mode where up to four players can play baseball-themed action mini-games.
