El Segundo, Calif. - July 6, 2010 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced The Cages: Pro-Style Batting Practice for Wii TM is now available in retail stores nationwide. The Cages: Pro-Style Batting Practice is a fun-filled batting cage simulator that lets players test their inner slugger by swinging against numerous pitches from a virtual pitching machine across numerous mini-games.

With The Cages: Pro-Style Batting Practice, players will take the motion controls of the Wii to a new level as their hand/eye coordination is tested by hitting against real-life simulations of 19 of some of baseball's most difficult pitches. From the slider, to curveball and the fast ball, players will feel like their standing in the middle of their favorite baseball park! An intuitive learning curve keeps players primed for the next challenge by showing players side and top down views to show exactly where they made contact with the pitch to help for areas of improvement. Players can snap on the Wii Motion Plus TM to make for an even more authentic experience and add greater depth perception. Take the individuality further by giving your batter real-world physics such as weight, height, stance and more to test how unique physical composition can shape ball trajectory.

The Cages: Pro-Style Batting Practice is also crafted with teamwork and fitness in mind! Team up with up to four friends to battle for supremacy in a homerun challenge! The in-game tools track your cardiovascular progress including how many calories have been burned while taking on pitches.

The Cages: Pro-Style Batting Practice is rated 'E' for Everyone by the ESRB and priced at SRP of $29.99.
