MLB The Show 18 is shaping up to be a big year for Sony’s yearly baseball game. The game will feature a revamped Road to the Show mode, a “major gameplay engine tune up,” and a new player tagging system. The game itself looks quite impressive, and there are over 1,000 new gameplay animations that’ll be in the March 27, 2018 release. Now Sony has released a new video that celebrates the rivalries that baseball is known for.

Check out the new MLB The Show 18 trailer below:

Here’s what Sony had to announce about the upcoming MLB The Show 18 features (via the PlayStation Blog):
