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.

2K Sports held a media event for NBA 2K18 this week, and the Switch version was finally playable. All sorts of outlets went hands-on with the game and shared information about how it’s shaping up on the system.

According to Game Informer, up to four Switch systems can be linked together for local play. Eight players can participate locally as well.

A lengthy gameplay video has come in showing off-screen footage of NBA 2K18 on Switch. Check it out below.

Nintendo of Europe has announced NBA 2K18 will be physically released on the Switch on October 17. We can also confirm that the game will be released in North America on the same day.


The digital version of NBA 2K18 will be coming to Switch on September 15 as previously announced. We were originally supposed to see the physical release at around the same time, but it was delayed for unspecified reasons.

We have more news about the Switch version of NBA 2K18 stemming from a hands on event that took place today.

First up, NBA 2K18 will be about 25GB. That puts it as one of the larger digital downloads on Switch, but if you have a big microSD card, it’s not entirely unmanageable.

We also have good news about updates on Switch. Nintendo is allowing developer Visual Concepts to push updates day and date with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. That means the Switch version won’t be forgotten, and will be receiving the same treatment as other platforms post-launch.

2K Sports unveiled a new mode debuting in NBA 2K18 for the first time. MyPARK, Pro-Am and the popular MyCAREER experience will be brought together in The Neighborhood.

Here’s the full rundown:

The Neighborhood is unlike anything ever seen in NBA 2K or any other sports career mode before. MyPLAYERs live in a neighborhood environment with several locations in the city blocks to visit, flush with other MyPLAYERs and characters with whom to interact. Experiences and ratings revolve around player actions, whether it’s running into Kyrie Irving while getting a shave at the barbershop, competing on the courts in The Playground, getting inked at the tattoo parlor, listening to the latest beats or showing off the latest gear to friends while strolling the block. A user’s experience is entirely shaped by how they compete, allowing them to reap the rewards of playing NBA 2K18 the way they enjoy it most.

It’s not too much, but the first glimpse of NBA 2K18 footage on Switch has come in with an off-screen video. See it below.

Update: Another important detail has come in. NBA 2K18 will run at 30 frames per second, while the PlayStation and Xbox One versions are 60 FPS.


2K Sports and Visual Concepts seem to be treating the Switch version of NBA 2K18 well. Folks are starting to go hands on with the game, including USgamer, and we’re hearing that it’s feature complete and will be identical to the PlayStation 4 version. NBA 2K18 players on Switch can expect the inclusion of MyGM team-management, MyLeague, MyCareer, Story mode, and everything else. It’s the same engine across all platforms.

amiibo support is officially confirmed as well. However, the specifics are being kept under wraps.

Retailers are updating the boxart for NBA 2K18 on Switch. It’s mostly the same, but the packaging has one key addition. As shown above, it’s noted that an internet download and microSD card are required.

The boxart change isn’t just limited to one retailer. Best Buy and GameStop have both made the change for all versions – the Early Tip-Off Edition and Legend Editions.

We still have to assume that NBA 2K18 will come on a cartridge on Switch. However, you may need an extra download before you can begin playing. NBA 2K games tend to be huge, so perhaps it couldn’t fit on the cartridge alone. That’s just our speculation, however.

Thanks to megasnorlax for the tip.
