MLB The Show 17 is getting a retro mode

Uh, okay

So we knew that Ken Griffey Jr. would grace the cover of MLB The Show 17, but today at PSX, Sony announced that the March 28, 2017 bound baseball game would get a “retro mode.”

It’s just as obvious as it sounds, essentially low-fi-ing (is that a verb?) the experience into a grainier version. I mean, it’s not as retro as Bad News Baseball, but it’s something! The Show 17 is out on March 28, 2017, which is less than a week before the start of the MLB season on April 2.
