Eyes Wide Games today revealed that their upcoming one-touch baseball title Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Watch This Homerun Ã¢â‚¬â€œ will arrive exclusively on Apple Watch later this April as the platformÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s debut sports game.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen where Apple Watch is going, and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s clear that giving sports fans and gamers fast and easy ways to plug into their favorite pastimes anytime will be a defining feature of the platform,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Eyes Wide Games CEO Stephen Griffin. Ã¢â‚¬Å“With Watch This Homerun, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re distilling the complete baseball experience down to its greatest hits in a form players can enjoy in just 10-15 seconds on the go.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Watch This Homerun puts players in the batterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s box with the game at stake, taking heat from fastballs, curveballs, changeups and more to knock as many pitches out of the park with the touch of a finger before the game is over. While the focus of Watch This Homerun is on short, satisfying bursts of excitement, a progression-based League system offers players a deeper, more persistent baseball experience over time. The gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s iPhone companion app tracks competitive leaderboards, achievements and personal stats against friends and the community.
Watch This Homerun is the first in a series of one-touch sports titles Eyes Wide Games has planned for Apple Watch. Future releases will play to audiences for soccer, football, basketball and more with the same streamlined approach to game-on-the-line fun and season play that can be enjoyed 10 to 15 seconds at a time.
Watch This Homerun will be available to download on Apple Watch later this month. For more from Eyes Wide Games, please visit www.eyeswidegames.com , and follow the studio on Facebook.
