R.B.I. Baseball 17 Coming To Nintendo Switch This Summer

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. 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. R.B.I. Baseball 17, officially licensed by MLB and the MLBPA, will be available September 5 for $29.99 on Nintendo Switch. For more information, visit and follow @RBIGame.

  1. The return of the NINTENDO SPORTS line-up of games for Nintendo Switch. First it’s NBA Playgrounds… and then FIFA 18, WWE 2K18, NBA 2K18… and coming this September 5th, RBI Baseball ’17!

      1. Correcting myself. Missing a few more sports. Football, Hockey, Golf, and the smaller sports. I think switch getting old time hockey so there is hockey.

    Well one of my Miiverse/PS4 friends is happy with his Switch now since he’s got all of these sports games to look forward to.
