ACTIVISION PUBLISHING’S BIG LEAGUE SPORTS AVAILABLE NOW FOR NINTENDO Wii
Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today Big League Sports for the Wii has hit retail shelves in North America. Developed by Koolhaus Games exclusively for Wii, the game is all about putting players right into the action in the most thrilling situations in their favorite sports.
There are multiple disciplines to master within tennis, basketball, football, soccer, lacrosse and hockey. But unlike other games the focus is not on the team – it’s on whether or not you can deliver in specific, adrenaline-pumping moments. Whether it’s acing an opponent in tennis, hitting a basketball shot at the buzzer, or bending free kicks around a goalie in soccer, Big League Sports offers a fresh interpretation of what a sports game can be on Wii.
“Big League Sports is perfect for family game night,” said Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. “The innovative Wii controls offer the kind of accessible head to head competition that gets everyone off the couch, playing and cheering!”
Big League Sports allows up to four players to compete in a variety of modes, including single game and tournament modes that offer hours of non-stop action. Players can also view their statistics and overall progress, as well as the trophies they have won. A character creation feature allows players to craft a character to their liking with dozens of customization options.
The game is out now for a suggested retail price of $39.99 and is rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB.
