Per a press release we just received:
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to watch Joe Nathan pitch against SpongeBob SquarePants? With 2K Play’s upcoming Nicktoons MLB video game, Twins fans will wonder no more. The attached screenshot proves it! Available next week on Tuesday, September 13th for Xbox 360 with support for Kinect, Wii and Nintendo DS, Nicktoons MLB is rated E for "Everyone," so it’s perfect for each and every Twins family to enjoy together.
The game allows fans to spice up the Twins lineup like never before by adding beloved Nickelodeon Nicktoons characters like SpongeBob SquarePants and Dudley Puppy to a roster of real-life Minnesota Twins players (and any of the other 29 MLB clubs should they choose). Set in iconic MLB stadiums as well as six outrageous Nicktoons-inspired stadiums, Nicktoons MLB gives all-new meaning to the phrase “one for the record books!” To see six of Minnesota’s finest in action alongside the animated all-stars.
They sent six screen grabs: Nathan, Denard Span, Francisco Liriano, Justin Morneau, Jim Thome and Michael Cuddyer. Maybe we can just call this 2011 season "The Curse of the SquarePants." Here are a couple more images, which we find oddly captivating. Looks like Liriano is getting taken deep. *Sigh*
