Game Description:Astro Kyudan is based on a comic which ran in Japanese comic magazines between 1972 and 1976. The manga told the story of nine baseball players who were born with a ball-shaped birthmark on their body. The group created a baseball team called the Astros and aimed to become the world's best baseball team. The comic was known for dealing with themes unexpected of a sports manga, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Sunrise didn't just make a standard baseball game based off the license. The game is actually set up as an action-adventure, where players follow a storyline and work through mini games. The mini games feature a simple control scheme and artwork that sticks close to the series' roots.
