Although this will be one of the smaller titles to be released that day, as BioShock: The Collection and the Dead Rising Triple Pack are also being released, it is nice to know these titles from generations past are trickling in. Moreover, this seems like a sports game that characterized that era’s catalogue of colorful sports games, including Mario’s sports outings. At this point, they seem to have been drowned out by the more realistic sports games, such as the NBA 2K games.
However, this game is getting one more release on PS4. Don’t miss it when it hits the courts on Tuesday.
