Play MLB The Show 23 on Switch for Free Before Release (North America)
Update [Thu 16th Feb, 2023 04:30 GMT]: This is a reminder to residents of North America that this trial can now be downloaded on Nintendo Switch.
Original article [Sat 4th Feb, 2023 16:00 GMT]: If you’re excited for the release MLB Program 23 and happens to be located in the US or Canada, it looks like you won’t have to wait long to try this latest version.
Only like last year, there will be a technical test taking place before the game’s launch. Players on all platforms (including Nintendo Switch) will be able to participate, as long as they have an internet-connected console. It will start on February 15 at 10am PST and run until February 21.
You will be able to download this demo from the Switch eShop and no registration is required. It’s basically a massive stress test against servers, online matchmaking, cross-platform play, and online co-op.
MLB The Show 23 will launch on March 28, 2023. If you choose to use the physical version, you will have to download an additional download. Something also missing from the Switch version is the Stadium Builder (specifically for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S).
