Will MLB The Show 22 be on the Nintendo Switch?

Is it in the cards?

It’s been a long time since a Nintendo console has had an official MLB simulation game. No such game has been offered on the Nintendo Switch since its launch in 2017. And in fact, you would need to go back nearly a decade to 2012 to find the last game in that genre on a Nintendo console, with the Wii release of MLB 2K12. Will the streak end in time for MLB The Show 22? Let’s go over what we know so far.

But before we get into the info, let’s take a trip back in time.

In December 2019, Major League Baseball, along with the Major League Baseball Players Association, and Sony announced a multi-year agreement to extend the partnership between the parties. The announcement noted that the agreement will allow the MLB The Show franchise to continue, but with a change. In the same release, MLBPA and Sony stated that MLB The Show will be brought to “console platforms beyond PlayStation platforms as early as 2021.”

This announcement confirmed that MLB The Show’s time as a PlayStation-exclusive title would be coming to an end, and let’s just say that Nintendo had no problem stirring the pot upon the joint statement. Shortly after its release, the Nintendo of America Twitter account teased that MLB The Show might soon be headed to users in the near future.

The exclusivity of the MLB The Show franchise on PlayStation platforms did officially end in 2021, with the release of MLB The Show 21. The title was made available for the Xbox family of consoles for the first time ever, but Nintendo Switch users did not luck out.

Will this change for MLB The Show 22? Yes, it will. Sony and SDS confirmed on January 31 that on April 5, MLB The Show 22 will launch for old and current-gen Xbox and PlayStations platforms, plus the Nintendo Switch for the very first time. It might be odd for an Nintendo game to have the PlayStation Studios logo on it, but in 2022, almost anything in the video game industry seems to be possible.
