R.B.I. Baseball 17

If you’ve purchased R.B.I. Baseball, a new update should be waiting for you. Version 1.0.1. came out this week.

All signs point to the patch being small in nature. An official tweet says that “a few bugs” were addressed.


R.B.I. Baseball 17 came out today on Switch both physically and digitally. Have a look at some gameplay below.

The MLB has tweeted a new trailer for R.B.I. Baseball 17. As the tweet points out, this is the first time in two decades that the series has appeared on a Nintendo console. The last entry to appear on a Nintendo console was Super R.B.I. Baseball for the SNES.

R.B.I. Baseball 17 is available now. Watch the trailer below:

The Switch eShop has updated with a listing for R.B.I. Baseball 17. It’s due out very soon, as it’s planned for September 5.

R.B.I. Baseball 17 will be sold physically, but also as a digital download. The latter option will require 3.1GB of free space.

The eShop also lists supported controllers. You should be able to use the Joy-Con or the Pro Controller in docked mode. Also noted is the ability to pop off the Joy-Con and play with a friend, which makes it sound like the split Joy-Con setup is supported.

Thanks to Jes T for the tip.
