MLB The Show 22

Shohei Ohtani’s 2021 season was one for the ages. Hitting 46 home runs, 100 RBI’s, and stealing 26 bases while also having a 9-2 record on the mound with a 3.18 ERA and 156 strikeouts.

It has been said, “The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.” Ohtani might seem like an overnight success here in the US but he’s been climbing the impossible mountain since his teenage years attending Hanamaki Higashi High School in Japan.

After having one of the greatest seasons in the history of Major League Baseball, Shohei Ohtani was really the only obvious choice to grace the cover of MLB The Show 22.

Today, we are thrilled to announce that MLB The Show 22 launches on April 5th, 2022. The Standard Edition on Nintendo Switch is $59.99 USD/$79.99 CAD. The Standard Edition on last gen consoles is $59.99 USD/$79.99 CAD. The Standard Edition on current gen consoles is $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD.

MLB The Show 22 Standard Edition on Nintendo Switch and on last gen consoles comes with the game and 5,000 stubs.

MLB The Show 22 Standard Edition on current gen consoles comes with the game, 10,000 stubs, and 5 The Show Packs.

I think this is going to be on Gamepass on day one which feels so weird but right thanks to the MLB.

^^ I read that as well.

Does anyone know if your rosters / franchise will transfer over to the new game? I really don't want to start a franchise over after having played 3 seasons.

God damnit, I like buying The Show digitally nowadays so I don't have to take the disc in and out, but the Shohei cover is going to force me to buy a physical copy.

Re: MLB The Show 22

This year's annual baseball game MLB The Show 22 will be coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox Game Pass day one. Releasing on April 5, the series is its first release on Nintendo Switch, and its second release outside of a PlayStation console after last year's MLB The Show 21 came to Xbox consoles.MLB The Show 22 has finally been announced, and it's hitting more platforms than ever before this year. Of course, that has immediately reignited a burning question: will it have crossplay?

The answer is yes! MLB The Show 22 will indeed have crossplay once again, and in a stunning move we'll even have crossplay to Nintendo Switch.

MLB The Show 22 Crossplay: Nintendo Switch debut still gets Cross-Platform progression (realsport101.com)

That makes it possible to crossplay between Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms, which is truly groundbreaking for sports gaming.

Now available on Game Pass... I d/l this year's version after playing 3 seasons of 21. Really bummed the previous years don't transfer into this game but I do love me some baseball and I'm thrilled to have this for "free".

Re: MLB The Show 22

Played it a bit. Easier to hit. Seems fun. Although I finally get the call to the majors and it crashes. It puts me back to the beginning of the season. I try again, get traded, and get called up. Crashes again. Back to my previous team at the start of the year.

Fuck this bugged piece of shit. I have plenty of other games to play.

Not a whole lot different from last years game. It's a little thing, but I do like the fan cam they added between innings.

I love this game, but I still think the whole card pack thing is needlessly convoluted and confusing. I guess people love it though.

I'm so glad I have no interest in that bullshit. I only ever play franchise mode.

DLC's have ruined so many video games, including sports games.

Re: MLB The Show 22

My game still crashes every time I try and play a game in the majors. It’s happened six times now. Right after getting promoted.

Just tried again. Seven times now. This after I restarted the Xbox.

Not sure if you care to submit a ticket, but the Devs fully recognize some game breaking bugs and ask that people do report the bug.

This game is pretty much last year's version with a coat of paint -- which i fine enough. I only play franchise anyhow.

One cool thing is they had a guy throw out the first pitch and it was almost a Baba Booey level shit throw lol.

Probably a direct reference. I know they have referenced the horsetooth jackass before in the game.

Re: MLB The Show 22

So...I joined two online leagues of 30 teams each and both of them have been full for weeks, but gameplay has yet to start - is it the responsibility of the creator of the league to start the games, and if he/she doesn't, is there a way of reporting them so they get flagged in some way or that Sony can give some other member permission to start the league?
