This past February Tomy released a Wii game with the Major anime license and later this year the series will come to the DS. While sports games aren’t a major topic on Siliconera, Major DS Dream Baseball has an innovative control scheme to check out.
Instead of just pressing a button to throw a ball Major DS has players use the touch screen. You start by picking the corner where you want the ball to end up. Then you create a custom curve ball by drawing its flight path on the touch screen. Batting is equally as innovative. Players start by tapping the ball then dragging it out of the hit box and hopefully out of the park. Have a look at the slash batting/pitching system in the video below.
I’m not sure how many Major fans read Siliconera, but if you’re planning to import this mark July on your personal planner.
