NBA Playgrounds is Out Now
Independent developer Saber Interactive has launched the arcade-style basketball game NBA Playgrounds as a digital-only release for $19.99.
For the first time in years, theres 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.
We hope to have our review up for you as soon as possible.
