Sports games, as we know, are a hell of a big deal. If you think of one of the big names like Madden or FIFA Soccer, these are some hot ticket items right here. Like the immense, indestructible Call of Duty, they’re slapped into the ACME Game-Recycling-O-Matic machine annually, and lapped up.

‘Videoball will come out July 12 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for $9.99. The Xbox One and Steam versions support six-player local multiplayer while the PlayStation 4 supports four players.

The trailer sure speaks for itself. Feast your eyes:
