News: Bulging Brewers first baseman takes on The Bigs boxart.
2K Games has announced that Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder will adorn the cover of The Bigs 2 when it is released on July 7. In his three full Major League seasons, Fielder has become a feared slugger, just like his father, Cecil Fielder. Prince Fielder is the youngest player to ever hit 50 or more home runs in a season and he, along with his father, is part of the only father-son duo to each 50 or more home runs in a season.
?I've been playing baseball video games for as long as I can remember. All of my idols have appeared on a video game cover, and now to have that same opportunity is truly an unbelievable feeling,? said Fielder. ?I can't wait to see myself in The Bigs 2. I'll be the guy crushing mammoth home runs into the stands.?
?Prince is a rare and tremendous talent that comes around only once in a generation, and we're absolutely thrilled to be working together with him on The Bigs 2,? said Greg Thomas, senior vice president of sports development for 2K. ?After reading through all the different community message boards and forums, we're excited to deliver a variety of new features that our fans have long been clamoring for, as they'll surely notice the big leagues just got bigger this season.?
The Bigs is in development for the PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360. We'll have more soon.
