Features

The big news around MLB The Show 21 is that, for the first time, The Show will not be a PlayStation exclusive.

The title has been confirmed to be arriving on Xbox, but could Nintendo Switch players be joining the greatest Show of all too?

Will MLB The Show 21 be on Nintendo Switch?

The burning question.

In terms of confirmation, we haven't had anything that confirms The Show's arrival on Nintendo Switch.

That said, there was a tease from the Nintendo America Twitter account in response to MLB's decision to open up the game to more platforms.

Of course, this could just be Nintendo celebrating the news - but is there more than meets the eye?

With still over two months to go until release, there's plenty of time for San Diego Studios to add Nintendo to MLB The Show 21's roster.

Release Date

MLB The Show 21 arrives on Tuesday, 20 April.

Following a leak, we believe there is to be Early Access on the more lucrative editions of the game.

This should be four days of Early Access from Friday, 16 April.

Platforms

MLB The Show 21 has been confirmed for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Just like Switch, it remains to be seen if The Show will be available to play for PC players.

If there was a version arriving on Switch, we imagine it would contain the same features as the PS4 and Xbox One versions - similarly as to how EA release a Legacy Edition for FIFA 21 on Switch.

Cover Athlete

21's Cover Star is the youngest ever - in the form of San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr.

It looks as if Jackie Robinson is to be on the cover of the Collector's Edition - of which there are three - the Jackie Robinson Deluxe Edition, Jackie Robinson Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition.

Features

So far, we still know very little about MLB The Show 21.

The one big feature we know about is that Crossplay arrives on The Show - allowing Xbox and PlayStation players to battle each other online.

Even if the game does come for Nintendo - we would be surprised if Cross-Platform play will be extended to Switch.

As for game modes, we are still in the dark - but for what we want to see in the game - head here.
