Mastiff Games brings us a face stuffin frenzy, all in a bid to out-chomp your opponents. Major League Eaters: The Game will be available through WiiWare in the US in May; with no European date set for the homebrew initiative only American gamers will get to plug their yaps, virtually of course.
Belching and mustard gas (I assume the non-lethal, non-DNA damaging kind) are to be the new time honoured distractions to be used in slowing your competitors down.
“Major League Eaters aren’t just elite athletes,” says Bill Swartz, Head Woof at US publisher Mastiff. “They are the people who built America. Or at least the competitive eating part of America. And I am deeply honored that the International Federation of Competitive Eating and Major League Eating choose Mastiff as their exclusive videogame partner.”
“We knew this sport would lend itself very well to an interactive format,” said George Shea of Major League Eating. “Mastiff has the stomach and the sense of humor to pull this off.”
