Despite the game's unnecessarily long title, you might be happy to know that 2K is releasing Major League Baseball 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars
this April for the DS.
We're not big experts when it comes to portable baseball games
, but it's common knowledge around these parts that MLB 2K7
was pretty abysmal. Will this iteration be any better? Well, it probably can't get any worse.
will take advantage of the DS's stylus controls, utilizing the touchscreen for hitting, pitching, fielding, and running. You'll also be able to use "special power ups" (we hope that's not code for steroids) to help improve the players' performances. Other features will include themed stadiums, and -- wait for it -- Wi-Fi multiplayer.
We'll put this one in the "wait and see" category, because it sounds like 2K is really trying to improve this series. Hopefully Deep Fried Entertainment can do a better job with MLB 2K
on the DS than Skyworks Technologies.
