GREE Announces Social Baseball Game With A Special “USP”

GREE announced that “Pro Yakyuu Dream Nine” will become available on GREE for Japanese feature phones on Friday, a social baseball game (yakyuu means baseball in Japanese).

There are social baseball games out there already, but this title, provided by Konami, is the first one carrying a license from the Nippon Professional Baseball League. GREE describes the title as a digital card game (see pictures below) and that thanks to the license, users will be offered “real” teams and individual players.

There will be over 1,000 different cards to choose from, once GREE officially releases the game this spring (on Friday, only a few users will be able to register for a trial run).
