Sony hosted their annual PlayStation Experience event this past weekend, and we’re still sorting through all the trailer and announcements unveiled during the showcase. And for all you baseball fans out there, here’s a look at the first gameplay trailer for Sony’s MLB The Show 17.
The trailer also gave us a quick glimpse at Retro Mode, an SNES-styled mode that transforms MLB The Show 17 into something that more closely resembles 1994’s Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball. Here’s what Sony San Diego’s Ramone Russell had to say about MLB The Show 17’s Retro Mode on the PlayStation Blog:
Introducing “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.
MLB The Show 17 will be released for the PS4 on March 28.
