Nickelodeon, 2K Play and Major League Baseball will release Nicktoons MLB for Xbox 360, Wii and Nintendo DS this summer. The game pits Nickelodeon's Nicktoons characters against players from all 30 MLB teams in a baseball gaming experience that takes advantage of Kinect for Xbox 360.

Featured Nicktoons characters will include SpongeBob SquarePants, ZIM, Dudley Puppy, Fanboy, Chum Chum, Ren and Stimpy. Featured MLB players will include Matt Holliday (St. Louis Cardinals), Andre Ethier (Los Angeles Dodgers), Miguel Cabrera (Detroit Tigers), Jason Heyward (Atlanta Braves), Cliff Lee (Philadelphia Phillies) and Robinson Cano (New York Yankees).

The games are under development at High Voltage Software and Black Lantern Studios. The summer launch of Nicktoons MLB will be supported with special events in Major League ballparks throughout the country.

"Our Nicktoons stars are taking the field and plan to 'go yard' against the best players in Major League Baseball," says Shaan Kandawalla, vice president of digital retail games for Nickelodeon/MTVN kids and family group. "Nicktoons MLB will introduce a whole new rivalry on the baseball diamond and mark the first time our popular animated characters and MLB's players will be featured in the same game."
