After rampant speculation since E3 2016, Microsoft finally lifted the technical curtain on their anticipated new console; Project Scorpio. Packing an unprecedented level of power, the newest addition to the Xbox family will easily out-muscle its competition upon its release later this year. Eurogamer’s Oli Welsh put it nicely in his “Scorpio made simple” rundown of the monster machine. “It’s a far cry from Xbox One, Kinect and TVTVTV. It reminds us of the original Xbox and Xbox 360 – this is Microsoft throwing its considerable engineering resources at making the best possible games-playing machine. Xbox is back.”

Further additions: revamped graphics (obviously), improved character models, and updated, as well as new, stadiums. The interface has also undergone a modernization overhaul.
The online multiplayer will support co-op and versus player. Single player and local couch co-op has also been confirmed.
“With the launch of Super Mega Baseball we received an overwhelming and positive response from the community, confirmation of sustained interest in this style of streamlined gameplay in sports games, and some excellent feedback,” Metalhead co-founder Scott Drader said in a statement. “That feedback was consistent with our roadmap for the product and that has made decisions on where to improve the game rather easy–we’re improving upon the original largely with the set of features most requested by the community.”
