Freddie Flintoff Hits DS for Six

First cricket game heading to the handheld

Last year's Ashes Cricket 2009 on Wii was a huge success for Codemasters, but the lack of a DS version disappointed fans who wanted a bit of leather-on-willow on the move. Thankfully UK developer Fuzzy Frog Games has stepped in to fill the gap with Freddie Flintoff's Power Play Cricket on the way to DS in August.

Taking an arcade-style approach to the sport, the game promises all the high-speed action you'd expect from the sport, with multiplayer, World Tour and Challenge modes all included. England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff (nicknamed Freddie) is lending his name to the game, and the touchscreen controls should make for intuitive batting and bowling. We'll see if this one bowls us over when it launches across Europe on August 6th.
