'Lethal League' combines video game violence and baseball bats

Thursday August 14th, 2014

Extra Mustard recently wrote about old-school video games we’d like to see make the next-gen leap, and it looks like one genre is happening.

Coming to online gaming platform Steam on August 27, Lethal League is a 2D fighting game in the Street Fighter mold, and just like countless 90's fighting games that had to stand out with gimmicky fighters (dinosaurs, Samurais, Shaquille O’Neal), every character in Lethal League is a baseball player. Or at least they’re holding bats.

The game will be available for $13.99, thought a free demo is available online now.
