You may remember that The Bigs was released for the Wii about two years ago. The game wasn’t spectacular, but it wasn’t terrible either. It must have been at least moderately successful though, as a new The Bigs title is on the way. The instruction manual for Major League Baseball 2K9 states that the game is coming this summer. No word yet on which platforms that game will be released for.
