NBA Playgrounds Releasing May 9 On Nintendo Switch

If you played video games in the early ’90s it was impossible to avoid NBA Jam. It was one of the most popular arcade machines around and the Super NES and Genesis home versions were a blast to play, whether you were into sports games or not. Now we have a new contender in the same vein: NBA Playgrounds.



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.


We have more on NBA Playgrounds at our preview page. It will release on May 9, 2017 for $19.99 on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
