2K Sports has posted their third MLB 2K12 Developer Diary. Audio Director, Joel Simmons talks about some of the new dialog additions for the game.
This year was a really big push for detailed pitching and hitting analysis, especially because of the new gameplay feature for Pitch Trends. First off, we wanted to go much deeper into the specific analysis about the current game. What are the pitchers throwing to yield success via fly-outs, ground ball outs, or strikeouts? Or maybe more importantly, what pitches are being put into play? How are you utilizing the strike zone in terms of mixing locations, or getting hitters to chase? And how effective are you mixing up your pitch types? These are some of the analysis angles we set out to design for the new broadcast segments in MLB 2K12.
