Take baseball on the go.

The Nintendo Direct, on Feb. 9, 2022, unveiled several key titles for coming to the Nintendo Switch during the first half of 2022. One title players can expect to see on the Nintendo Switch this year is MLB The Show 2022. Some players wonder if this game's Switch port will feature motion controls.

MLB The Show 22 will allow players to use motion controls in Exhibition Mode. While it isn't mandatory, users can take control of their players using a single Joy-Con controller when playing MLB the Show 22 on their Nintendo Switch console. Users can even enjoy online matches in the Switch version of this release against their friends. MLB The Show 22 also sports cross-play with other consoles and cross-progression so that users use the same account and progress no matter which version of the game they choose to play.
