Shohei Ohtani: Unanimous AL MVP is Your MLB The Show 22 Cover Athlete

MLB The Show 22 launches day one with Xbox Game Pass on April 5.

Shohei Ohtani’s 2021 season was one for the ages. Hitting 46 home runs, 100 RBIs, and stealing 26 bases while also having a 9-2 record on the mound with a 3.18 ERA and 156 strikeouts. Vince Lombardi Jr. once said, “The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.” Ohtani might seem like an overnight success here in the United States, but he’s been climbing the impossible mountain since his teenage years attending Hanamaki Higashi High School in Japan.

After having one of the greatest seasons in the history of Major League Baseball, Shohei Ohtani was really the only obvious choice to grace the cover of MLB The Show 22.

Today, we are thrilled to announce that MLB The Show 22 launches on April 5, 2022. The standard edition on Xbox One is $59.99 USD/$79.99 CAD. Standard edition on Xbox Series XIS is $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD.
