Slated a few days ago to be released this May 9th on the European Nintendo Switch eShop, there was little doubt that NBA Playgrounds wouldn’t hit the North American stores on the same day. Well, it’s now confirmed.
The Nintendo of America official website just got updated and lists the basketball game to hit the Switch eShop on May 9th as well, for $19.99. NBA Playgrounds will throw us back in the glory days of NBA Jam/Street with arcade style action and more than 150 “Super-Deformed” players from past and present teams. Here’s the full roster, and see below an official description:
Classic NBA arcade action is back! Take your ‘A’ game to the playground and beat the best in high-flying 2-on-2 basketball action. Practice your skills, play with up to three others on your Nintendo Switch and use your talents to posterize your opponents with acrobatic jams and ridiculous displays of skill. Collect your favorite players from a massive roster of current and retired NBA superstars from every team. Travel to playgrounds across the globe to compete against the very best with your massive arsenal of dunks and moves. Use your fine-tuned skills to take on the master of the playground himself – Allen Iverson.
