MLB Stickball for XBLA tomorrow

Urban baseball and big heads.

MLB Stickball will be the Xbox Live Arcade game released tomorrow, Wednesday 8th October, as Microsoft says we've been asking for baseball game for a while now.

Oh have we.

Anyway, Stickball isn't quite baseball; the characters have got oversized heads for a start, and they go at it in famous urban areas from around the US: San Francisco, LA, Chicago, etc.

Each of these has specific rules to abide by, like hitting cars or surrounding objects with balls to earn points.

For those that do follow the sport, there's also 120 Topps cards of real-life players to unlock as you go.

MLB Stickball is handled by 2K Sports and costs 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).

Look out for our thoughts on the game soon.
