Sony’s MLB The Show 22 plays ball with Nintendo Switch on April 5
Here’s some news straight out of left field. The last title of MLB The Show series, MLB The Show 22, is making its way to Nintendo Switch. Sure, baseball games have appeared on the system before, but this particular franchise was exclusive to PlayStation until MLB The Show 21 launched on Xbox One/Series. Now the Switch joins America’s favorite pastime.
This means MLB The Show 22 will start on Switch with the PlayStation logo

There’s even an official trailer on Nintendo’s YouTube page:
Savage! No gameplay, unfortunately, but at least we get some motion capture footage from Ohtani, along with some career highlights.
It was also announced that MLB The Show 22 will support cross-platform play, cross-progression, and cross-save between Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles. Because players who play together stay together.
You can pre-order the title digitally through the eShop for $59.99. It will launch on April 5. And, thanks to the stars above, it’s not a cloud version!
