Darumeshi Sports Shop, the first free-to-play title released by Nintendo in Japan, will be heading to North America under the title Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball.

Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball

This is Nintendo’s second free-to-play title to be released in the west, the first being Steel Diver: Sub Wars which released earlier this week.

Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball stars dog named Rusty Slugger who is an ex-baseball player and owns a sports store. He is in dire need of money as he has 10 puppies to feed.

You as the customer, will purchase mini-games from Rusty, such as Bat & Switch, Cage Match, Drop & Pop, Volley Bat, and more per Siliconera.

The game and its first mini-game will be free, and the other mini-games will cost $4 each. You can end up paying less though if you can successfully haggle with Rusty, using doughnuts or being a good listener when he tells you of his problems. Put him in a better mood, and he may knock the price of a mini-game down for you.

Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball will be available this April for Nintendo 3DS through the eShop.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
