The game will debut on August 17 and will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The game will give fans a chance to toss, slide, line up and rally their way to the famous South Williamsport stadium for a chance to win a World Championship.
“Following the highly successful 2010 Little League Baseball World Series franchise over a decade ago, and as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Little League Baseball World Series in August, Little League is pleased to return to the playing space and highlight the fun and excitement of the tournament in a digital experience,” said Liz DiLullo Brown, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Little League. “We look forward to enhancing Little League fan interaction, both on and off the field, and bringing the World Series experience into the homes of fans of all ages in this new exciting way.”
Players will be able to choose a team and compete through the World Series bracket with the goal of becoming the Little League World Series Champion. Players can also skip the bracket and play against friends.
