    Default Did Human Baseball for Super Famicon ever come to U.S.?

    I was reading a old issue of Die Hard Game Fan, and they had a preview for a Super Famicon baseball game called "Human Baseball". I believe it was made by a company called "Human". This game was one of the first baseball games to use Mode 7 to scroll the field after a ball was hit.

    At the time, Game Fan expected somebody to pick it up and release it stateside, but I personally don't recall a baseball game coming out here that used that engine.

    Tecmo Super Baseball was a SNES baseball game that featured the use of Mode 7, but this was not the same game.

    Has anybody ever played the Super Famicon game, "Human Baseball"? If so is the game pretty sweet?

    Did the game ever come stateside?

    Thanks.

    I don't know if it was released in the US, but it does look neat. The controls are a bit tricky. If someone could get me the serial code, it would make checking easy.

    Hmm I never heard about this game before but I'm not much into imports.

    Was Human Tennis ever released?

    FUN FACT: No Nintendo Release has ever had the word "Human" in it. "The Humans" for Game Boy is the only exception to this rule.

    Human baseball doesn't show up as a licensed, unlicensed, or cancelled title. and for the Record, Super Baseball Simulator 1.000 was the first SNES baseball game, released in September of 1991.

    Hmmm. I could swear that I bought Super Bases Loaded the day the SNES launched, and that Super Baseball Simulator came out a couple of months later.

    Both were released on launch day, actually. I listed it as first because it showed up in my computer numbered earlier, although that may not be totally reliable.

    Human, like Tecmo, tended to include the company name in its releases. Here are some:

    Human Baseball
    Human Grand Prix 1
    Human Grand Prix 2
    Human Grand Prix 3 - F-1 Triple Battle
    Human Grand Prix 4 - F-1 Dream Battle


    All Japanese releases. I think some of the F1 games did make it to the US, but they had different titles.
