GREE reveals first English language sports game MLB: Full Deck

Japanese mobile-social gaming giant GREE has released its first major sports game MLB: Full Deck for iOS, featuring officially licensed Major League Baseball teams and players from and the Major League Baseball Player Association.

MLB: Full Deck allows users to build a team of superstar major leaguers from all 30 MLB teams with more than 650 MLB players and challenge their friends, a similar concept to traditional fantasy sports titles. The game also features a Season Mode where players can play against all 30 MLB franchises, train players to improve stats and receive player boosts based on current MLB stats.GREE MLB: Full Deck screenshot

Other baseball games in the mobile app ecosystem include Gamevil’s Baseball Superstars 2012, Hothead Games’ Big Win Baseball and Com2uS’ Homerun Battle 3D and 9 Innings: 2013 Pro Baseball.

Com2uS’ 9 Innings: Pro Baseball franchise, in particular, has been a success for the developer with three entries in the series and shares some similarity with MLB: Full Deck in that both titles have officially licensed players from the MLBPA, but 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2013 doesn’t have the official license for MLB franchises like GREE’s game. According to our traffic tracking service AppData, 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2013 is ranked No. 75 in the top free app games genre on iOS and ranked No. 4 in the sports game genre on Android.9 Innings Pro Baseball 2013 AppData
