NBA Playgrounds update will improve loading times on Switch, Shaq-Fu development finished

Posted on May 9, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Saber Interactive has spoken about supporting NBA Playgrounds going forward with multiple updates. On Switch, one of the big things we’re waiting on the ability to play online – which should be coming very soon.

In an interview with Just Pause, Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch also said that loading times are being improved. This is an issue for some on Switch, and loading takes the most time on Nintendo’s console than any other version. It should be addressed soon, as the team apparently improved the situation with the first upcoming update. Matt Karch

Additional players packs and playgrounds will be distributed for free. Also, journeyman players will receive updates to allow you to choose their team.

We previously revealed that Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is on the way to Switch. It might not be too long before the game debuts, as core development is finally complete.

Watch the full interview with Karch below.

    The loading times are my only issue. The game is really fun but having to wait to replay a game kills the fun especially when you are learning the game and the games are very short. Getting beat while you learn the timing is no fun only to have to wait 40 seconds for another game.

    I was not even aware this game launched. I thought non-physical games would only get a, eShop release on Thursdays.

    Loading times and resolution in portable mode is my biggest complaints. The resolution is so bad in portable mode I can’t even read the stats on players half the time because the game looks so blurry. So I REALLY hope they address that as soon as possible. The loading times are annoying but I can tolerate it to a extent. But the resolution in hand held is by far my biggest complaint with this game…
