MLB Advanced Media has released the first gameplay details for R.B.I. Baseball 14, which will feature a modern art style and faster-paced games.
R.B.I. Baseball 14 is the only officially licensed multi-platform baseball alternative to MLB The Show. Launching April 10 for Xbox 360, PS3, and mobile platforms, the new game will attempt to stay close to its classic roots, while featuring a more modern art style and brisker pace.
R.B.I. Baseball 14 will dig into its retro NES roots to provide simple two-button gameplay for Season, Postseason, and Exhibition game modes. Sessions are expected to run quickly, with the average game lasting under 20 minutes. Player stats will be built through MLB AM's statistical database.
R.B.I. Baseball 14 is also expected to release later down the line for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at an unspecified date.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what is video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
