Arcade style street ball is officially back, NBA Playgrounds out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC

YES! It’s here! Arcade style, two-on-two street ball is back! NBA Playgrounds out now for consoles and PC! I wish I didn’t get sick last month so I could have used a sick day to play, but I guess I just have to be patient… Anyway, go pick up your copy and if you want more information, read our first post about it or the official press release from Saber Interactive below:

MAPLEWOOD, N.J. May 9, 2017 – Independent developer Saber Interactive has launched the arcade-style basketball game NBA Playgrounds for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™, and Windows PC (Steam) as a digital-only release for $19.99.

For the first time in years, there’s a newcomer to the 2-on-2 basketball scene. NBA Playgrounds sports all 30 NBA teams and a deep roster of current and retired NBA players that you can level up over time, including Allen Iverson, LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Shaquille O’Neal, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Magic Johnson. Show your flair with over-the-top moves and all sorts of show-stopping dunks. Play two-player offline co-op, two-player online* competitive, four-player offline team matches, or just go solo. NBA Playgrounds also supports single-player and local co-op tournament play, with online tournaments coming in a future free update.

NBA Playgrounds features power-ups, collectible cards, special techniques, a killer hip-hop soundtrack, and a lottery pick system that rewards great play. Arcade basketball legend Ian Eagle of NBA Jam fame returns for NBA Playgrounds, delivering the same one-of-a-kind bombastic announcements fans loved in arcades past. E.J. “The Mayor” Johnson, the voice of Rucker Park, also provides color commentary.

NBA Playgrounds is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB and PEGI 3+. For more information, visit www.nbaplaygrounds.game, like NBAPlaygrounds on Facebook, and follow @NBA_Playgrounds on Twitter. NBA Playgrounds is published by Mad Dog.

*The Nintendo Switch version of NBA Playgrounds will not feature online functionality at launch. Online play will be made available in a free game update expected in a few days.
