Sony has released the first gameplay trailer for MLB The Show 20 which shows the gameplay. A lot of the game is actually composed of action shots to elicit some excitement to the tune of Little Bit of This by GTA featuring Vince Staples. There’s some gameplay as well showing elements of batting and fielding, including moments where players miss catches by not stepping into a target quick enough. There are also quite a few shots of players celebrating runs with dances in the dugout.
Back in December Major League Baseball announced that it was entering a multi-platform partnership from 2021. This would see MLB The Show lose its PlayStation exclusivity as it heads to Microsoft’s and Nintendo’s platforms. A Nintendo confirmation was announced by Nintendo on its official Twitter account.
Here’s the blurb for MLB The Show 20:
With new ways to play, greater customization, and more exciting new paths to rake in rewards — this is the biggest and best Show ever. Write your own baseball legacy in an expansive RPG experience, or build and manage the team of your dreams to face intense online competition*. The Show 20 is your ticket to play America’s pastime your way.
MLB The Show 20 will be available on March 17th, 2020 though pre-orders can get early access on March 13th.
