Back in November we announced Adrian Gonzalez as our cover athlete for MLB 12 The Show, and today we are excited to reveal that cover image. When sports fans look for MLB 12 The Show on store shelves beginning March 6th, they’ll see the Red Sox All-Star first baseman gracing a cover that has a new, sleek look and one that makes a bold statement – “Highest Rated Sports Game 4 Years in a Row.” Here’s a glimpse…
The Show has been and continues to be the market leading and most realistic baseball title of this console generation and the number-one rated sports video game over the past four years, so we’re psyched to have one the best all-around players in baseball representing MLB 12. The first overall pick by the Florida Marlins in the 2000 MLB Draft, Gonzalez has ascended to the top of his sport, both on the field and at the plate. He is a four-time All-Star (2008-2011), three-time Rawlings Gold Glove winner (2008, 2009, 2011), and 2011 Silver Slugger Award winner.
Here’s a look a few news articles highlighting our features, as well as Adrian Gonzalez: Operation Sports (MLB 12 @ CES), HighSchoolSports.net (developer interview), MLB Network (Gonzalez interview), IGN (studio visit), ESPN.com (Gonzalez interview), ESPN.com (first screenshots), ESPN.com (studio visit), and MLB.com (Gonzalez interview). MLB 12 The Show will hit stores on March 6, 2012 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, just in time for Spring Training. Be sure to keep an eye on the PlayStation.Blog and TheShowNation.com for more information in the coming days and weeks on this year’s game.
