If you were a Wii U owner and a sports fan, aside from when the system first launched, you were pretty much screwed on sports titles for the platform. The Nintendo Switch already has FIFA, NBA 2K, and WWE coming to the platform this year, but one of America’s greatest past times, baseball, was missing in the lineup (and football. Where you at Madden!?)

It looks like that will be changing in a few months however, as today, R.B.I. Baseball 17 was announced to be coming to the Nintendo Switch in September. From the press release:

R.B.I. Baseball 17, developed by MLBAM and featuring Los Angeles Dodgers 23-year-old All-Star shortstop Corey Seager on its U.S. and global covers, is set this summer to release a new version of the Major League Baseball video game for Nintendo Switch. This latest edition of R.B.I. Baseball 17 will be available September 5, at which time it will become the first officially licensed professional sports game to be available at retail outlets for the Nintendo Switch console.


Fans will have yet another platform to access the authentic R.B.I. Baseball experience on the go or share with friends and family at home, competing in unparalleled MLB action and features in new ways with the Switch’s myriad and unique controller options that supports gaming everywhere. R.B.I. Baseball 17 will be among the few sports titles with widespread platform distribution, making it available to fans across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets and now Nintendo Switch consoles.

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.

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.
