2K Play has today announced a new sports game with a twist for Wii, coming this summer. If you love your Nicktoons, and you love your baseball, then Nicktoons MLB is the game for you! For the first time ever, an all-star roster from Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons series will take on players from all 30 MLB teams.
Playing for the Nicktoons we have the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants, ZIM, Dudley Puppy, Fanboy, Chum Chum and Ren and Stimpy, and on the MLB side we have Matt Holliday (St. Louis Cardinals), Andre Ethier (Los Angeles Dodgers), Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers), Jason Heyward (Atlanta Braves), Cliff Lee (Philadelphia Phillies), and Robinson Cano (New York Yankees). Together they’ll play in custom created digital ballparks ranging from the famed Fenway Park to the frigid Frosty Freeze Field.
“The Nicktoons are an animated bunch and it’s no secret they have been petitioning our office to facilitate this unprecedented match up,” said Steve Lux, Vice President for business development of 2K Play. “Whether an extraterrestrial from Planet Irk, superheroes who wear underwear on the outside of their costumes, or a secret agent dog, time will tell if these heavy hitters have the grit to play in the big leagues.”In the lead up to the release of the game in the summer, fans can expect social media and special events in Major League ballparks throughout the country.
