Today during PSX, Sony revealed the debut trailer for Sony Santa Monica’s MLB The Show 17, which is coming to PS4 March 28, 2017; and Stars Ken Griffey Jr on the Cover.
It also revealed the game will feature Retro Mode, a retro gameplay experience that pays homage to the classic baseball games many of us grew up playing
Retro Mode allows you to move the pitcher across the pitcher’s rubber and move around the batter’s box with ease, classic on-screen displays, an old school soundtrack, unique sound effects, a throwback pause menu and more.
Retro Mode is entirely separate to the popular Road To The Show, Diamond Dynasty and Franchise game modes. This new way to play MLB The Show is designed to be a fun, throwback game mode that instigates battles on the couch with friends. We’re not diving deep into those modes just yet, but there are a few teases about the changes coming to RTTS, gameplay additions and a couple of other things we snuck into the trailer for our eager fans. Some changes are more obvious than others and we’ll take a deeper look very soon in case the untrained eye missed a clue (I’m guessing our biggest fans will find most of them by the end of the weekend).
Below, you can check out the new trailer:
