Major League Baseball 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars will put fans in touch with the action like never before while offering a wildly fun and interactive gameplay experience featuring starting lineups from all 30 Major League Baseball clubs, a variety of exhibition and tournament modes, All-Star training mini-games, along with fantasy-themed baseball stadiums.
Utilizing the functionality of the Nintendo DS touch screen, Major League Baseball 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars provides fans the unique opportunity to control the power and technique of their swings and the speed and accuracy of their pitch by performing specific gestures and intuitive usage of the stylus. Fielding, baserunning and other controls will also utilize the DS touch screen, as players drag and trace lines to execute these specific baseball actions.
Adding to the addictive gameplay experience, players will also have the ability to obtain special "power ups" to complete incredible batting, pitching, and fielding performances. Players can force their opponents to chase after the "chicken ball" that runs away from fielders once it's on the ground, or confuse them with a "crazy ball" that takes an unpredictable flight path. Pitchers can throw amazing new pitches such as a "super splitter" that splits the ball into two pieces to confuse the batter or a "fireball" that screams over the plate at rocket speeds while engulfed in flames. Fielders can join in the power up fun with the "brick wall" that causes a wall to instantly rise out of the ground to stop the ball in its tracks or the "super jump" that allows them to jump incredibly high toward the ball in flight.
