New NBA 2K18 patch going out for Switch, patch notes

Posted on September 26, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

2K Games and Visual Concepts are readying a new patch for NBA 2K18 on Switch. It hasn’t been said when exactly it will be available, but you can expect it “soon”.

In any case, the full patch notes are as follows:

– Fixed a case where game framerate would drop for the remainder of the game following a called timeout.
– Users are now able to view the individual attributes and their values when upgrading their players in MyCAREER.
– Gray indicators have been added underneath the feet of your teammates in the Playground; it is now much quicker and easier to discern your teammates from your opponents.
– Global settings/options will no longer reset to default after entering a MyTEAM game.
– Users will no longer lose their facial hair when re-scanning their face.
– Addressed a case where Draft-and-Stash players in MyLEAGUE/MyGM would be signed to a $0 contract, while simultaneously being duplicated in the upcoming rookie draft (new save required).
– Generated prospects in future seasons of MyLEAGUE/MyGM will now always have heights appropriate for their position (new save required).
– Free agents 32 years or older will no longer pass up big money offers to sign for the MLE in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.
– Users will no longer display negative badge progress following an exceptional performance in MyCAREER. For those currently experiencing this, continue playing and your tally will be incremented towards your next bonus.
– Fixed a hang that could occur when the user was scrolling down the list of available shirts in the T-Shirt Kiosk.
– Improved framerate in the court area of the Playground when games are being played on most/all of the courts.
– Addressed a hang that could occur when bringing up the squad menu in a completely full Neighborhood.
– Fixed a soft hang in Live Practice where the ball would not get picked up when using the ball machine.
– Fixed an issue where the camera would always point to the middle of the court if the user had the Auto Flip option enabled while in the broadcast camera(s).
– (Switch) Improved framerate/audio syncing during tunnel/locker room scenes in MyCAREER.
– (Switch) Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented Local Play from commencing when there were four participants.
NOTE: All patch fixes will work in your existing game mode saves unless noted otherwise.

    Okay so it looks like they fixed a lot of problems people have with the game and the Switch version. Very nice. When does the physical version of the Switch will release?

    I am honestly surprised they didn’t abandon it and wait for next years version to fix problems. I’m glad. They’re treating the Switch like other versions.

    Has no one else noticed the blemish on the screen during a game? It’s on all versions. But most noticeable on Switch. It looks like a little moon or a finger nail on the screen. I need to take a picture and post it.

    I actually created a website that helps you find 2K players to run with. The website url is and it’s free to join. Just add your MyPlayer and search other Myplayers in the database. Lots of cool features.
