Super Mega Baseball 3 has announced the release date of a new game mode: Online League (formerly announced as Custom Pennant Race). On September 29, SMB3 will launch its fourth update, which will include two game modes: Online League and Watch mode. 

Online League enables players to create customized leagues with cross-platform functionality. Set up leagues for casual intraleague matchmaking, or play according to your own externally coordinated schedule via a match-against-specific-user feature. Unlike Pennant Race mode, Online Leagues with default settings will allow usage of all Standard teams, full visual customization, and user-controlled Ego settings. Here's an overview of the new game mode's features:

  • Use invite codes to set up private leagues to play cross-platform with friends
  • Play in short-term or long-term seasons, with statistics tracked throughout the season.
  • Customize settings and rules, such as Ego (difficulty) level and game length.
  • Play with SMB3 standard teams or fully customized user teams.
  • Create large leagues - up to 32 players.
  • Queue for games against any opponent in the league, or queue against a specific user

The Watch mode offers users a new way to simulate AI versus AI games by allowing the user to control various cameras around the stadiums. These camera angles will let users observe the on-field action at different dynamic angles and viewpoints.

Honestly, I'm not sure why this "Watch" mode was added. But, hey, maybe some people like to watch computers play each other instead?
