NBA Playgrounds now has a launch window, it is releasing on the Nintendo Switch in May. NBA Playgrounds is an arcade basketball game that harkens back to the days of NBA Jam with two-on-two arcade action. When it releases in May, it will cost $19.99 and be available only digitally.
All 30 NBA franchises will be available, as well as a selection of current and retired NBA all-stars including Allan Iverson. The game will feature single player and both local and online multiplayer – online multiplayer will have tournaments, too.
“Basketball is such a pick-up-and-play sport at heart – we really wanted to bring that spirit into gaming,” said Saber’s CEO, Matt Karch. “NBA Playgrounds has a lot of depth for pros who’ve mastered their game, but it’s accessible enough that anyone can jump in, have fun and feel competitive.“
