Big Bash. Big heads.
Big Bash Boom was today announced by developer Big Ant Studios, in collaboration with Cricket Australia.
“Perfect for the whole family, Big Bash Boom mixes all the big hitting thrills of T20 cricket with instantly accessible arcade action,” Big Ant said of its latest in a press release.
“Anyone, anywhere, will be able to jump in and be hitting the ball like a pro with Big Bash Boom, which is fully licensed and includes all teams and players featured in this year’s KFC Big Bash League (BBL) and rebel Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) – meaning fans can take control of their favourite players.”
“Our previous cricket games, such as last year’s Ashes Cricket, have been known for being authentic, simulation style takes on the sport,” Big Ant Studios CEO, Ross Symons, said.
“We wanted to do something different with Big Bash Boom. Just as the BBL itself has grown to become Australia’s favourite family summer event, this is a game the whole family can jump into and have a great time with.”
All T20 BBL and WBBL teams will be present in-game alongside club mascots.
“Big Ant Studios really understands cricket and what it is that excites so many people about our sport. With the Big Bash now Australia’s biggest cricketing competition, we wanted to work together to create an accessible game for fans of all ages that reflects what people love about the BBL,” added Cricket Australia’s Head of the Big Bash, Kim McConnie.
Big Bash Boom heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch in 29 November.
