MLB The Show 22 is coming to Switch, Sony just announced. It will release on April 5, 2022.
It was announced at the end of 2019 that MLB The Show would no longer be PlayStation-exclusive. While it did have an Xbox version last year, it still wasn’t on Switch. That’s changing for 2022 though and it will be the series’ first appearance ever on a Nintendo platform.
Shohei Ohtani from the Angels is the cover athlete for MLB The Show 22. During the baseball season last year, he hit 46 home runs, had 100 RBI’s, and had 26 stolen bases while also pitching to a 9-2 record with a 3.18 ERA and 156 strikeouts.
When it comes to the Switch version of MLB The Show 22, players will be able to go up against those on PlayStation and Xbox with cross-platform play.
