The Switch is getting a baseball game! It might not be a particularly good baseball game, more on that in a second, but yay variety!

The game’s Twitter page made the grand-slam announcement this morning. You’ll be able to grab it at retailers or digitally on the Switch eShop on September 5th! As for the price, it’ll be $29.99, which means its more expensive on Switch than other platforms.

Here’s more info from the press release:

R.B.I. Baseball 17 allows for fun, fast-paced gameplay in all 30 ballparks with over 1,000 MLB players. The Switch version will take advantage of the platform’s unique controller options that allow for gaming everywhere.

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will appear on the US cover and Blue Jays centerfielder Kevin Pillar will appear on the Canadian cover.

Now, onto the bad part: the game hasn’t been reviewing too well. Currently, RBI Baseball on Xbox One sits at a very low 1.8 user score, with three critics giving it a 42%, 20%, and 20%. Yeah..that’s not that great. Who knows, though, maybe the game will find a suitable home on the Switch with a lot of improvements? Only time will tell.
