Baseball Live 2005 features all the gameplay systems from the Necchu! series, updated for 2005 with all the stats and data to reflect the big-time dealings that went down following the end of last season, including cross-league play. Presentation has been improved for the new version, with added player animation routines and Dolby Pro Logic II support. Namco is once again teaming up with Fuji Television to give the game the look of a real baseball broadcast. Necchu! featured five main modes of play. For Baseball Live 2005, Namco has upped the mode count to an amazing eleven: Pennant, Open, Highlight, Training, Asunard, Dream League, Time Slip, Dendou, Arrange, Tournament, and Necchu! Gekijou.
