Now Available for Nintendo DS

The BIG Leagues just got BIGGER
with Nintendo DS stylus and touch screen functionality

2K Sports today announced that The
BIGS 2, the sequel to the popular arcade baseball franchise, is now available
for the Nintendo DS. Featuring MLB All-Star first baseman and 2009 Home Run
Derby champion Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers as its cover athlete and
spokesman, The BIGS 2 gives fans the thrilling opportunity to experience BIGS-style
baseball on Nintendo DS for the first time.

Utilizing the Nintendo DS stylus and
touch screen functionalities, players will be able to hit monster home runs,
throw blazing fastballs and make heroic defensive plays that keep the gameplay
fresh and rewarding. Incredible power-ups will also be available in The BIGS 2,
including the ability for players to crush Big Blast home runs and throw Big
Heat fastballs past opposing batters. Along with the traditional Home Run Derby
mode to test for power hitting skills, the hugely popular Home Run Pinball mode
will be included as well. Fans can smack baseballs into Las Vegas windows,
billboards and even parked taxicabs – the more targets that are hit, the higher
the score.

“We’re excited about offering The
BIGS 2 for Nintendo DS and reaching an even wider audience,” said Greg Thomas,
senior vice president of sports development for 2K. "With addictive fun and easy
to pick-up-and-play controls, The BIGS 2 provides an amazingly entertaining
baseball experience for fans and casual gamers of all ages."

The BIGS 2 is now available for the
Nintendo DS and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. The BIGS 2 is also
available for the Xbox 360, the PLAYSTATION 3 and PlayStation 2, PSP, and Wii,
and is rated E 10+ by the ESRB. For more information about The BIGS 2, please
