Earlier today 2K Play, Nickelodeon, and Major League Baseball announced that Nicktoons MLB 3D is now in stores. The first baseball game designed exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, Nicktoons MLB 3D combines the talent and tenacity of baseball’s best players with the spunk and sponginess of Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons characters, adding a new dimension of fun and depth to the baseball gaming genre.
Players can step up to the plate with an outrageous roster of Nicktoons characters, including sophomore sluggers SpongeBob SquarePants, ZIM, Ren Hoek, Patrick Star, GAZ, and Aang, as well as rookie players Jimmy Neutron and Hiro Mightypaw, who are new to the Nicktoons MLB franchise. They’ll take on – or play side-by-side with – 175 top players from all 30 MLB clubs.
In addition to updated rosters and logos from last season’s Nintendo DS version – including the Miami Marlins’ colorful new uniform – Nicktoons MLB 3D features 15 ballparks like the all-new Ook Park of Monkey Quest fame and Chase Field, the site of the 2011 All-Star Game. New gameplay modes allow players to create a custom All-Star match-up in Showdown; use the augmented reality (AR) feature to enhance their cutter in Frosty Freeze Toss; blast line drives at oncoming boulders in Rock ‘N Roll and more. Nicktoons MLB 3D also supports wireless two-player action for the ultimate in head to head competition.
