NBA Playgrounds Bringing Arcade Basketball Back

Remember the days of NBA Jam and NBA Street? Fast-paced, arcade basketball action that took itself lightly and made the game of virtual basketball fun to play even for non-basketball fans. Developer Saber Interactive is bringing that action back with NBA Playgrounds. The game will feature the NBA license and will even include retired players. The game will be 2-on-2 and the players can be leveled up. It will features hundreds of over-the-top dunks and moves. Players can play the game solo, or with local multiplayer or online. More importantly, the game will retail for $20 and be available for digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It will arrive in May of this year, just in time for the NBA Playoffs. Check out the trailer to get an idea of the look and feel of true arcade basketball.
