Cricket 19 – The Official Game of the Ashes

Good news for fans of cricket: Big Ant Studios have announced that Cricket 19 – The Official Game of the Ashes is coming to the Nintendo Switch, in May. The game is built on Ashes Cricket (a fan favourite), and features all the formats of the international game, men and women’s teams, and all venues (including the Specsavers Ashes, which was fully licenced for both England and Australia).

Here’s more details and some screenshots:

Deep enhancements to the AI engine mean that the opposition is more realistic than ever before. When bowling, the AI will suss out your player and team’s weaknesses, and target that with a concentrated bowling strategy. When batting, the AI will rotate the strike to protect weaker players, and actively look for gaps in the field.



New features to be added to Cricket 19 include a scenario mode, which allows players to recreate the greatest matches in history, and then share them online to challenge other players to achieve difficult run-chases, or play out a draw from a disastrous situation. Enhancements to the career mode build a story around your player; how you look in the news headlines affects your potential career trajectory.
