MLB The Show 17 Retro Mode Detailed, Regional Cover Athletes Revealed

Ramone Russell posted a new blog on the official Playstation Site talking about some new details on Retro Mode in MLB The Show 17.

Retro mode is pretty much a one-button mode, but with surprising depth, and all the new animations, gameplay additions, and improvements found in the regular version of the game. For example, in an effort to simplify the batter vs. pitcher battle, we’ve taken all the pitching attributes out and boiled them down to velocity, break, and control. Because there is no high and low in the strike zone, you have three pitches at your disposal that you can trigger with the touch of one button. To throw a fastball you hold down on the left analog stick and press X. To throw a changeup you hold up on the left analog stick and press X. And to throw a slider you press to the left or right on the left analog stick after the pitch is released.
One of the wrinkles we’ve added is that velocity is controlled by holding down or up on the analog stick just before the pitcher releases. In closing, you choose velocity before the pitch is thrown and you can affect movement (left or right) after the pitch is thrown.

Also revealed are two regional covers for MLB The Show 17. The Canadian version of the game will feature Aaron Sanchez and the Tawianese version of the game will feature Wei-Yin Chen.
