The BIGS 2 Coming This Summer

Just the other day I wrote about my hope that someone would step up and produce an arcade baseball game. My original plea had always been for a sequel to The BIGS but no indication had been given that one was in the works. The BIGS was released in June 2007 and was my favorite sports title of the year. It mixed exaggerated action with solid strategic elements and also had one of the first online co-op modes to be offered.

Thanks to a teaser trailer (as confirmed to me by Chase and through his posting on OS) included on MLB 2K9 we now know that The BIGS 2 is in development and will release this summer, two years after the original came out. I had hoped to include the trailer in HD but unfortunately I have yet to receive a copy of 2K9.

So I’m really excited for this. As good as The BIGS was there was also a bunch of things that could’ve made it better. Lets hope more resources are put into The BIGS 2 than other releases (outside of MLB 2K/NBA 2K) coming out of 2K Sports of late.
