Furuta Atsuya no Simulation Pro Yakyuu 2 (古田敦也のシミュレーションプロ野球2?, "Atsuya Furuta's Pro Baseball Simulation 2")[2] is the sequel to Simulation Pro Yakyuu. This game has enhanced gameplay like extra meters to judge power and technique. There are faces to show the morale of the pitcher and the batter. Pitching is done through a television-like view while fielding is done through an overhead view. There is a still a guideline for pitchers to throw their ball; the inner box represents the strike zone while the outer box represents home plate.

The game's literal Japanese title has celebrity endorsement from former Nippon Professional Baseball player and coach Atsuya Furuta. He played from April 11, 1990 to October 9, 2007 - a career spanning 17 long years playing for the Tokyo Yakult Swallows. In many aspects, Furuta was like the Troy Aikman of Japanese professional baseball. This athlete had won the 1995 championship series and had defeated Ichiro Suzuki (who would become the batting champion that year). All the ball games take place on a domed stadium complete with a digitized group of spectators.
