The game leverages 2K Sports' exclusive MLB license to portray every MLB player in the series' trademark Precious Moments-like style, with enormous heads and small round bodies. The game will also feature representations of all the MLB ballparks.
In addition to Season Mode, the popular role-playing heavy Success Mode of the Japanese series will be included in the game. Players take on the role of an up-and-coming baseballer "dealing with real-world situations of academics, part-time jobs, and other social situations."
Though today's announcement didn't detail any Wii-specific controls, the game will use "easy pick-up-and-play mechanics in both pitching and batting," implying the possibility of motion-sensitive controls similar to those in Nintendo's Wii Sports baseball.
