Activision announced today that Little League® World Series Baseball 2010, this year’s entry in the acclaimed hit baseball series, will be released this July for the PS3 as well as the 360. This is the first time the perennially popular Little League® franchise has “hit” these systems. This game seems a bit too casual for the major console players to me, definitely something that I would expect to see on the Wii. I just don’t think that hardcore gamers will buy this if they have option of buying a realistic pro baseball simulation, but hey it could be fully integrated with PlayStation Move and do well, guess we will see.
Little League® World Series Baseball 2010 is Activision’s third officially licensed Little League® video game, and once again it is being developed by world renowned Japanese studio NOW Production. Players will have the chance to become a Little League World® Series Baseball Champion, while online functionality offers the ability to upload records and leader boards. New features include an all-new Season and Career mode that leads players from chumps to champs on the way to the World Series.
Little League® World Series Baseball 2010 will be available this July for $39.99. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB.
