NBA Playgrounds 2 officially announced, coming to Switch
Yesterday just a classification, today a reality. NBA Playgrounds 2 has been officially announced and it’s coming to the Switch this Winter in Australia (Summer elsewhere).
Independent developer Saber Interactive has revealed NBA Playgrounds 2, the next installment in the bestselling arcade-sports franchise. NBA Playgrounds 2 raises the intensity of the series’ over-the-top, two-on-two street action with a new line-up of online and local multiplayer game modes, as well as new courts from playgrounds across the world.
Playgrounds Championship mode introduces a new worldwide ranked league system, featuring multiple competitive solo and co-op division ladders for players to climb. Season mode is a new single-player experience that recreates the feeling of leading a team through the regular season, playoffs, and, ultimately, the NBA Championship itself. There’s also improved matchmaking with dedicated servers, the arrival of four-player online matches, the return of three-point contests, custom matches, and more – pick your team and play without limits!
NBA Playgrounds has had a weird life on Switch, going unpatched for months then “re-released” with a new version but it still sold solidly. Hopefully, Saber will be able to handle the ball a little better this time around.
