Officially licensed by Major League Baseball Properties and MLBPA, MLB SlugFest 20-04 is the exclusive aggressive-style baseball videogame, delivering a proprietary blend of hardcore, lightning-fast gameplay combined with key baseball features that please even the most diehard sports fan. MLB SlugFest 20-04 also features cover athlete Jim Edmonds, of the St. Louis Cardinals® along with real MLB teams, players and stadiums. “MLB SlugFest debuted as the best-selling PlayStation 2 baseball videogame its first year on the market,” said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. “MLB SlugFest 20-04 will be another crowd-pleaser with its simultaneous launch across all gaming systems—including Game Boy Advance—and even more hardcore action combined with a robust list of all-new baseball features.” MLB SlugFest 20-04 offers real Major League Baseball® athletes with over-the-top abilities, including turbo-powered running, play-of-the-week fielding and out-of-the-park hitting. In addition, all-new features add plenty of adrenaline, including new modes such as Create-A-Team, which allows gamers to form their own All-Star team; Customizable Instant Replay, allowing gamers control of the camera and the ability to view their towering home runs and diving catches; and Home Run Derby™, which pits gamers’ favorite MLB players against the most feared long ball hitters in the league (PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube versions). Graphically, MLB SlugFest 20-04 combines more than 1,500 animations with revolutionary player models, resulting in each player being mapped to his exact likeness. Stadiums are also rendered to perfection. Authentic batting stances and wind-ups also add to the realism of the game as players in the field look and throw, and batters and pitchers look and move, just like their MLB counterparts. MLB SlugFest 20-04 also features music such as Hoobastank’s “Crawling In The Dark,” plus original DVD content that includes the behind-the-scenes making of the game and Jim Edmonds highlight footage: A Day in the Life with Jim Edmonds (PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube versions).
