It’s 28 years old and first arrived as a NEOGEO launch title. Now though it’s time to head to the field and smash out a home run or ten in ACA NEOGEO Baseball Stars Professional on Xbox One.

Available to purchase and download right now, ACA NEOGEO Baseball Stars Professional is one of the very first NEOGEO title from way back in 1990. Many of you out there may not have even been born when it first released, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a shot and if you’re a fan of all things retro, or just need to try and load some bases, then it may well deliver the goods.

Don’t expect anything too complex, and the recent Super Mega Baseball 2 may be a better way to get a baseball fix, but with a Vs Mode and Tournament Mode both present, and the chance to throw out a pitch or power up with a home run, it shouldn’t be ignored.

It’s priced rather well too – £6.39 from the Microsoft Store if you’re interested – so make sure you get on over and give it a little purchase.
