It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
I am looking at a Famitsu scan of the index, and none other than Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 is listed under Playstation 3. I believe this is now a PS3 exclusive as I don't see a listing for this game under PS2/Xbox 360. I will link to scans and details later when they become available.

Thank you Ms. Westbay for putting this up so quickly.

So far I have only found 1 scan for the game. It is apparently from yesterday. Can't really see much except a picture of Iwakuma. On the left side you can see the name of Komatsu and Iguchi. On the second page there are some menus. Seems like a big selling point of this year's version will be an increase in the variety of commands/strategies you can give from the bench in the manager mode. Not sure if that's very exciting.

A bigger, different scan: [Image]

Confirmed: a new mode called Manager Play. You call plays from the dug-out, there is even a first-person view.

I would be very disappointed if this is the only major addition since I enjoy playing, not managing, in my baseball games.

The release date is still set at Summer 2009. Nothing more specific at this point.

We have a website! So release date somewhere around the middle of May?? Are there any big NPB events going on in May to coincide with its release?

Hey guys, I am reading the infamous Japanese message board and apparently, other than the manager mode (which can also be played online), there is also a "big mode" Konami says they can't announce yet! This has GOT to be the WBC mode or something huge. Now my excitement level is amped up once again.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest | Posted: Apr 16, 2009 5:11 PM ]

"Big Mode"?? Huh?? Luigi are you sure this isnt just a literal translation meaning that the players will have really large heads?? Anyways good find and keep the info coming when you can. Wheres BIG Z when you need him?

Famitsu has a short article with screen shots up at http://www.famitsu.com/game/coming/1223541_1407.html.

Anyone care to translate for us?
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!

The site has been updated with the date of 7/16 being the release.

Wow and it says something about a WBC mode. Glad I waited for this one.

you can preorder it on play-asia
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest | Posted: May 29, 2009 3:16 AM ]

I am definitely looking forward to the WBC mode. Any details as to what countries will have their official rosters? Fingers crossed for Korea and Cuba, but I highly doubt that Cuba will be.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Psunami | Posted: May 30, 2009 10:46 AM ]

It's up for pre-order at NCSX now as well.

I'm excited about the WBC mode. I've been buying the game for the last two years and have really enjoyed it each time.

Here 2 pitcures of a japanese magazine with new pics and info about Pro Yakyu Spirits 6 and WBC.

Seems the rosters of all National teams are official(we can see David Ortiz ,Chapman).

I guess official site is going to be updated in the next days. I hope so XD

The PYS6 Official Site has been updated......to include the first PYS6 video of the WBC!!!! Check it out http://www.konami.jp/prospi/6/

[ Author: Guest: pgoody | Posted: Jun 15, 2009 3:57 AM ]

Well if its the same as last year Konami should be coming up with steady updates usually every Friday, so expect the next batch of info, screens, vids, maybe on ht e 25th 26th.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest | Posted: Jun 15, 2009 1:33 PM ]

Updates will actually start on the 19th. (maybe even this Tuesday the 16th). That's if they stick to their update "formula" from last year (every Tuesday and Friday). Let's just hope July 16th comes sooner rather than later (and that WBC will have online play).
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: nyy4life | Posted: Jun 25, 2009 4:38 AM ]

The official site has been updated. All the info has been included and organized into categories. All the details of the game (including WBC) are in the site, albeit in Japanese.

Got a promo video on YouTube! Just found it last night, and it outlines not only the WBC mode, but also what looks like enhancements to the Stardom Mode and also online. I think I might've heard something about online updates too. That would be a major help throughout the season, and it could even eliminate the possibility of another kanzenban edition.

The video is here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4aJaTkDuJA

Enjoy!

Anyone else here salivating at the opportunity to play as Ichiro in a PYS game??!??!?!
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest | Posted: Jul 7, 2009 12:34 AM ]

Not just Ichiro; but ALL WBC Teams and Players. I just hope WBC can be played online; I would not play any other game.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: tampa | Posted: Jul 8, 2009 4:27 AM ]

Yeah I'm looking forward to playing as any team in the WBC, although Cuba more specifically. Looking forward to finally using Chapman, Lazo, Vera, Gurriel, Cespedes, and Cepeda in a video game. Korea and Taipei should be fun to use as well. Any news on whether you can modify the team rosters, because there were players that joined their teams late like Brian Roberts and Evan Longoria for the US, and Kurihara came in for the injured Murata later on in the tournament.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: PGOODY | Posted: Jul 8, 2009 1:48 PM ]

well they finalized the rosters well after the finish of the WBC so im sure they are up to date as can be

[ Author: Guest: PGOODY | Posted: Jul 9, 2009 1:44 AM ]

Ok what is the first thing you're going to do when you get PYS6?!?!!

I am going to do some practice modes, maybe a few exhibition games, then try my hand at the WBC mode and see if I can't take the USA all the way.


BTW, Tampa, in one screenshot I saw a menu for Utility within the WBC mode.

[ Author: Guest: Paul Hanlin Jr | Posted: Jul 12, 2009 11:27 PM ]

Does Konami really want sales to go through the roof in the US? Have an option which converts the menus to English. There's a market in the US for PYS 6 and it would have been great to offer such a thing.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: PGOODY | Posted: Jul 13, 2009 1:30 AM ]

Good point Paul. I've talked with a lot of people on other sports video game sites and they are tentative to buy only because of the language issue.
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: thenewcurse | Posted: Jul 13, 2009 3:43 AM ]

I wish that was the case. Nevertheless, its not going to happen. People on this forum as well as myself have been clamoring for such an option for years now. Konami simply denies that a U.S. market exists for PYS or believes that the cost of putting in english menu options is higher than the marginal revenue increase through U.S. sales. It appears to be clear to most of us on this forum however that this addition would at the very least be profitable for Konami even if the foreign nature of the game failed to win over the US market. If they were to make english text translations and advertised the game in the US, i guarantee that the game would sell at least 100 times the number of copies it sells in this country as is. This is not to say that Konami is entirely at fault however. We're still making the plunge, and most U.S. companies would resist making their menus available in other languages.

PYS 6 (PS3) received 10/9/9/9 rating from Famitsu, suggesting that this year's iteration will be as good as anticipated!
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: PGOODY | Posted: Jul 15, 2009 1:24 AM ]

Hey Curse, just curious, what are the four categories that Famitsu uses to rate games?

?/?/?/?
Re: It's here! Pro Yakyu Spirit 6 Announced!
[ Author: Guest: thenewcurse | Posted: Jul 16, 2009 9:08 PM ]

There are four independent reviewers who each rate the game on a 1-10 basis and their individual scores sum to a score out of 40 (I believe). This is the best review i can remember in recent years for a yakyu game.

Much appreciated, looks fantastic. Can't wait to get my copy here in the states. Proud owner of PYS 3,4, and now 6.

Excellent find on the videos:

Vid #5 shows some cool new animations.

Iwamura fields a hard hit grounder by Choo and has to turn to his glove side and pick it at his hip.

Ogasawara is up to bat and really bends low to send a liner to RF for an out.

And I liked how the User had to work while pitching. By the bottom of the 3rd he was around 45 pitches
