2K Sports and Konami today co-shipped a new baseball game for the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 2, hitting MLB Power Pros 2008 out of the manufacturing park and into North American retailers.
MLB Power Pros 2008 includes more than 10 game modes such as Practice, Exhibition, League and Home Run Challenge, but it does do using comedic miniature Major League Baseball players.
In spite of its cartoony appearance, MLB Power Pros 2008 has the same depth of the “big boy” baseball games, as it puts players in a general manager role. With this label, players can control the destiny of their franchise in Season mode or engage in various role-playing story modes such as Success and MLB Life. Gamers can also make trades, sign free agents, coordinate practice schedules, purchase new equipment, call up and send down players from the Minor Leagues and adjust numerous options to try and bring in fans.
Fans will also enjoy pick-up-and-play hitting and pitching controls, support of 40-man rosters, change of ball speed, adjustment of defensive shifts and a real-time bullpen. MLB Power Pros 2008 also lets players import their Miis from their Wii or Wii Remote. Up to 10 Miis can participate.
A Nintendo DS version of MLB Power Pros 2008 will ship next month.
