Bandai NAMCO announced ahead of the delisting that Pro Yakyuu Famista 2020 for Nintendo Switch would be removed from sale on May 31st, 2021. No explanation was given but considering the numerous sports leagues and TV networks credited on the game’s homepage, it would seem that expired licensing was the cause for the delisting. The announcement from the game’s homepage follows:
