While MVP Baseball Online is a Korea only title. I’m inclined to believe that, like a Transformer, there is more than meets the eye.
Pure speculation, but it is my belief that EA Sports is laying the ground work for a comeback to the US market. Just looking at the PC mod community that has grown up around MVP 2005 its obvious that people want EA back in the big leagues. Starting off in Korea gives them time to develop the game and work out bugs before re-launching the MVP series in North America.
Depending on how the MLB chooses to handle it’s licensing, we could see the making of an MLB resurgence in 2014 between MLB 14: The Show and MVP 14 on the PS4. This could get even more interesting if Konami wanted to bring their Japanese Pro Baseball Spirits series to an American crowd.
