Virtual Batting (バーチャルバッティング) is a Sega Titan Video arcade baseball batting mid-size attraction developed and manufactured by Sunsoft. Released exclusively to Japanese arcades in 1994, the attraction is a one-person simulated batting cage, and features a large screen opposite the player which displays pitchers and their throws.


Advertised as aiding players in improving their batting skills[3], the game was once planned to be released in the United States. On October 17, 1994, Sun Corporation of America (the American branch of Sunsoft) filed a trademark application for Virtual Batting[3]; however, the company never followed through on the application, leaving it legally abandoned[3], and the game ultimately remained a Japanese exclusive.


Virtual Batting was developed by Sunsoft programmer Michio Okasaka, who later departed with other staff in December 1994 to form developer Santaclaus.[2]
