MLB announced today that R.B.I Baseball 17 will be coming to Switch later this year.

The official press release suggests that the Switch version of the game (which was released on other consoles earlier this year) will make use of Switch’s unique controllers and portability.

An overview of R.B.I Baseball 17 itself can be found below:

R.B.I. Baseball, which has long featured fast paced and fun gameplay, is a full nine-inning game in less than 20 minutes with easy-to-use controls. The game features Season, Postseason, Exhibition and Local Multiplayer, including season saving and simulation capabilities. All 30 MLB ballparks are rendered in stunning detail and teams feature the latest rosters in regular updates. Players can modify lineups with complete MLB rosters or classic rosters allowing them to play their games their ways.

This will be the first baseball game available on Switch and, according to MLB, it will be the first officially licensed professional sports game sold at retail outlets for Switch — although it will soon be joined by other sports games later this year, including FIFA and WWE.

R.B.I Baseball 17 was met with largely negative reviews on release. Despite this, it remains to be seen whether the Switch version will have solved any of the issues that critics had with the game at launch.

In any case, we won’t have long to wait, as the Switch version of R.B.I Baseball 17 will be released on September 5 for $29.99.
