San Diego Studios revealed two new legends, Randy Johnson and Ryan Howard, for MLB The Show 22 on Feb. 9 as excitement for the new entry continues to build.

The MLB The Show 22 hype started to build when San Diego Studios first revealed that reigning American League Most Valuable Player Shohei Ohtani. After that, a Nintendo Switch version was announced, a special edition was revealed and also cross-save/cross-progression for those wanting to take their Diamond Dynasty saves across multiple platforms. Even with the current MLB lockout putting a dampener on the upcoming season, The Show 22 hype train is rolling on.

The latest reveal building up to the April 5 release date was two new legends coming to the game: Randy Johnson and Ryan Howard.

MLB The Show 22: Randy Johnson and Ryan Howard Confirmed as New Legends

Johnson, known as the Big Unit, is one of the most prolific pitchers in baseball history. During his time with the Montreal Expos, Seattle Mariners, Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks, New York Yankees and San Francisco Giants, Johnson amassed 10 All-Star appearances, five Cy Young Awards, a World Series ring and MVP during the 2001 season.

Expect San Diego Studios to release multiple cards for Johnson in DD, possibly for either his no-hitter or perfect game.

Howard is the second new legend and was a vital player for the Philadelphia Phillies during his 12 year career for them. Nicknamed the Big Piece, Howard notably had three All-Star appearances, a World Series ring in 2008, an NL MVP and was a two-time MLB home run leader.

MLB The Show 22 launches April 5 on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
