Konamiís Baseball Pitching Simulation game is out today for the Nintendo Wii in North America, for an SRP of $29.99.* The Cages: Pro-Style Batting Practice is a batting cage simulator that lets players bust out their inner slugger by swinging against numerous pitches from a virtual pitching machine across lots of different mini-games.
In the game, which is fully compatible with Wii MotionPlus, players will have their hand/eye coordination and swinging skill tested by real-life simulations of 19 of baseballís most difficult pitches. From the slider to the curveball and the fast ball, players will have to face it all!
An intuitive learning curve keeps players primed for the next challenge by showing them side and top-down views to let them know exactly when they made contact with the pitch. Using Wii MotionPlus will add to the authenticity of the experience and provide enhanced depth perception. You can also give your batter real-world physics, such as weight, height, stance and more to test how unique physical composition can shape ball trajectory.
The game has also been made with fitness and teamwork in mind, giving you the opportunity to team up with up to four friends to battle for supremacy in a homerun challenge. The in-game tools will track your cardiovascular progress including how many calories have been burned while taking on pitches.
