Regional Differences

Each version of the game features a different league (Major League Baseball, though only with a players' association license, and Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball, respectively), so a myriad of regional differences are present.

The title screen was changed completely, right down to the copyright. The Japanese version uses the scoreboard design of Chiba Marine Stadium; Super Batter Up opts for the center field scoreboard of Wrigley Field.

Super Famista has the count on the right side of the screen and the score on the left. This was reversed in Super Batter Up. Additionally, the count is displayed as dots in the Japanese version and numerically in the US one. The player graphics also differ between the two.

Home Runs

The home run cutscene features two blimps in Super Famista, whereas Super Batter Up has the fun sight of Pac-Man either on a rocket or in a plane. The player graphics also differ between the two.
