R.B.I. Baseball 14, the first new R.B.I. Baseball game in 20 years, is coming to current- and next-gen consoles as well as mobile devices this spring, MLB announced yesterday.

Last seen on the NES two decades ago, R.B.I. Baseball was the first baseball franchise to actually obtain the MLB license and have actual player names appear in the game.

R.B.I. Baseball 14 will fall under MLB’s Advanced Media branch, best known for providing the web streaming services many baseball fans rely on. Last week, WWE announced a partnership with MLB Advanced Media to help launch the recently revealed WWE Network.

This news follows 2K Games’ announcement last week that they were done making MLB games, leaving many wondering what would happen to the state of baseball videogames, since only Sony’s MLB: The Show series remained. With R.B.I., those who chose something other than a Sony console can still get their baseball fix.

Still, many questions remain surrounding R.B.I. Baseball 14. Will it be an arcade-style baseball game or a simulation experience? What modes will it provide? How long has MLB been working on the game? How much will it cost? Is MLB working with any other, more experienced game studios?

I guess we’ll find out soon enough when R.B.I. Baseball 14 hits home consoles and mobile devices sometime in spring 2014.
