NBA Playgrounds Release Date Announcement & Gameplay Video

NBA Playgrounds Release

Independent Developer Saber Interactive has just announced that it’s officially licensed 2-on-2 basketball game NBA Playgrounds will be coming to Xbox One on the 9th May.

This homage to the much revered NBA Jam lets you take to the court as both current superstars and legends such as Allen Iverson, LeBron James, Steph Curry and Shaquille O’Neal, (here’s hoping for the inclusion of a Shaq-Fu shaped Easter Egg!!!).

NBA Playgrounds gameplay looks impressive, the Xbox One giving the series a polished feel without taking away from the arcade style and frenzied pace that made the original NBA Jam so enjoyable to play. Featuring a progression system that allows you to unlock further players, each player will also have discoverable moves giving an element of reward for extended gameplay. There will also be a lottery pick system giving players unique rewards.

Just like NBA Jam, NBA Playgrounds promises flamboyant dunks and cross-court, last second shots to keep the action entertaining. You won’t be stuck with these by yourself, NBA Playgrounds will have local and online multiplayer as well as regular tournaments for you to enter.

NBA Playgrounds will be available for $19.99 or the equivalent in your home country.
