NBA 2K18 will be adding face simulation technology on Switch after launch

Posted on September 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

One of the features NBA 2K18 has added in recent years is face simulation technology. By using a mobile app, players can bring their visual appearance into the game.

Switch owners will have access to the functionality… just not at launch. 2K wrote on its official forums that the feature will be patched in “through subsequent updates”. A specific date was not mentioned.

    Even though they cheaped out on the carts, I gotta applaud 2K for trying to give us a complete experience compared to other consoles, and don’t use the “it’s too hard!” excuse to hide incompetence, like a certain other company’s sports game.

      FIFA is 60fps.

        I’ll give ’em that, but removing features is definitely a red flag in my book.

  • what if i scan a picture of my junk

      Shouldn’t look too different than your face then

        Dang…that was ruthless..

          Duke Hospital is about 20 minutes away. They have an excellent burn unit we can take him to.

        • not gonna lie that was damn funny

        Uncle Phil is going need some ointment from that savage burn

      Would trigger error message:” your face is too small. Moves closer to the camera”

    Requires an SD card for… Faces.

    Yep, we got a winning console here, folks!

      It doesn’t say anything about an SD card being needed for the Face Simulation.

      • Lance Devon

        Requires SD card for downloaded part of game. Face recognition being a part of a game that’s downloadable… yeah definitely not seeing a connection here…

        • Jack Red

          If you’re referring to that previous article on SD cards being needed, it also mentioned that you’d be able to play a portion of the game that had been downloaded onto the SD card. And last I checked, Face Recognition isn’t a portion of the game.

      And yet games like Zelda and Mario Kart do not require one. So who is at fault here, do you think?

      • Evan Gustavson

        Most games “like Zelda” take up WAYY more space than Zelda does. My bro was astonished at how low the file size was compared to other open world RPGs he owns on the PS4

        • Tlink7

          How big is NBA for Switch again?

        • yeah nintendo games are really small
          other companies don’t give a crap about compression for consoles
          NBA 2k for wiiu was the same size as xenoblade x

      • Lance Devon

        Probably those who aren’t willing to embrace more realistic quality of their games maybe?

        • Tlink7

          Realistic quality?

    If nintendo gamers do not support 2k18, this will prove that nintendo gamers dont support 3re party
