This edition features the 2003 updated Japanese pro players and team stats. The game has more realistic television quality graphics. New additions to the game include: fielder cursors, stamina gauges, and fluid defensive plays which allows you to grab those normally out-of-reach line drives. A training mode gives you a chance to practice pitching, defense, batting and even Konami's new "Shock System" which makes for more fluid game where players react immediately after hitting a pitch or when on the hunt for towering pop-ups. The Shock System also allows for balanced control during the game.

There is improved AI, running commentary by announcers, comfortable camera angles, and accurate recreations of team stadiums. [source:mobygames]
