Power Pro 2022 Review Score Revealed in Latest Famitsu

With Power Pro Baseball 2022 just around the corner, Weekly Famitsu not only covered the game extensively in the latest issue of the magazine (the April 28, No. 1741 issue with Ichiro on the cover), but they also dropped their review. The game received 9’s across the board from their reviewers (36/40), earning it a “Hall of Fame Platinum” award. The only other games to receive the same reward in the issue were Ghostwire: Tokyo (PS5) and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands (PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX). 

The reviewers were pleased with the sheer volume of modes on offer in Power Pro 2022 and praised Success Mode and the brand new Power Park mode. In case you didn’t know, Power Park allows players to use their created athletes in a variety of mini-games. While the number of available at launch is a bit small, this will grow over time. One reviewer commented, “With the continuous release of mini-games in Power Park, you can expect more things to do with your created characters over time.” 

eBaseball Powerful Pro Baseball 2022 hits the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on April 21. Both versions of the game are identical with the only difference being PlayStation VR support for the PS4 version and amiibo support on the Switch. Power Pro Baseball 2022 is on the “two year release” cycle, meaning that the 2022 version will receive support from Konami until the end of 2023. We will have more coverage for the game with gameplay footage and a review shortly after and around launch. In the meantime, be sure to check out our preview for the game below.

Will the game drop at midnight Japan time on the eshop tonight?

I haven't seen anything that specifically said that, but if it's anything like other bigger third party titles, yeah, it absolutely should. For the past few Japanese baseball games I've picked up I went with physical versions, so this is something I didn't have to think about until now. Getting this one digitally, though!

Awesome. I have always gone digital just because I’m not patient enough to get it shipped to the us lol. But I know that last 2 dropped on the eshop at midnight. So surely it will! I can’t wait to play. Your videos always help me get through the menus! 😀
