RBI BASEBALL IS BACK.
Let's say you're a gamer of a certain age, which is to say, old. Or maybe you're just young with extraordinarily good taste in video games. You undoubtedly owned RBI Baseball and played it, say, constantly on your Nintendo, because it allowed you to play as your favorite team or create famous moments in Bill Buckner's life. Or just bunt with the bases loaded. Plus it was a lot better than any of the football choices at the time.
Sure, there were many baseball games that came out after it did in 1988. Graphics got better. Simulations got better. For some reason robots fought and rode around like a motorized unicycle. The scoreboard at Fenway Park looks more real than the real one.
But there was never another RBI Baseball. Until now.
MLB Advanced Media made the announcement Tuesday that the franchise will return for the first time in more than two decades when RBI Baseball 14 is released across all consoles, old and new, and on mobile this spring.
Hallelujah, choirs sing. Wait. We can do even better than that. 8-bit music.
Just listen to that. Over and over and over.
Or just listen once and sing it to yourself over and over and over. It's the theme song you never forget.
