Thrilling big league baseball action in a variety of fun and exciting mini-games for fans of all ages
2K Sports announced today that Baseball Blast! ®, the only officially licensed Major League Baseball® mini-game experience, will be available this fall exclusively for the Wii™ system from Nintendo. Offering a fun and unique new baseball experience, Baseball Blast! gives fans the opportunity to test their abilities in a variety of unique game modes, including skill challenges, puzzles, and trivia matches. Featuring every MLB team and today’s top baseball stars, Baseball Blast! will also include entertaining play-by-play commentary by popular baseball personalities Rob Dibble and “Mr. Baseball” himself, Bob Uecker.
“Baseball Blast! is the ultimate sports party game that will provide endless amounts of fun and entertainment for fans of all ages," said Greg Thomas, senior vice president of sports development for 2K. “While playing with family or competing against friends, everyone will enjoy the wacky themed mini-games that deliver an exciting new baseball experience.”
With over 20 different baseball-themed mini-games, such as Fly Ball Fury, Carni-ball, Power Pitcher, Bumper Base, Pennant Race, Galaxy Ball, and many more, Baseball Blast! allows fans to fulfill their virtual diamond fantasies by smashing home runs that soar past planets, hitting cannonballs back at pirate ships, and even stealing bases on a baseball diamond inside the Rock prison. Players can also rack up points to unlock trophies and new puzzles, and earn strategy cards to compete against their friends in a fun bonus game. A challenging trivia mode will also be available for fans to test their baseball knowledge, including over 100 questions that range from casual baseball knowledge to stumping even the hardcore baseball fanatics.
Baseball Blast!, published by 2K Sports, is planned for release this fall for Wii.
