It’s been a long wait for NBA Playgrounds’ first update on Switch. The game is still missing key features on Nintendo’s platform such as online play. And unfortunately, we’re still without a definitive date for the update.

Saber Interactive Matthew Karch did at least offer up some comments as to why things have taken so long. He says that online play “has been functional for weeks” and he’s “at wits end”.

As for the holdup specifically, it sounds like Nintendo guidelines are getting in the way. Karch had this to say about the situation:

Sumo Digital introduced Time Trials and leaderboards to the Switch version of Snake Pass this week with version 1.2. However, players quickly began to notice an issue with the Joy-Con. After applying the patch, the controllers have a tendency to rumble excessively.

The good news is that Sumo already identified the problem and has a fix in the works. Another update should be distributed soon.

Sumo wrote on its website:

“As many of you know, on Wednesday Snake Pass Update 1.2 was released across all platforms. Whilst there’s been plenty of incredible feedback we also aware that some of you have had some issues with the update. Most notably we’re aware that a number of users on the Nintendo Switch have been experience excessive rumbling of the Joy-Con controllers. We just wanted to let you all known in an official capacity that this is an issue we’re very aware of. You’ll be thrilled to know that we’ve identified the issue that is causing this problem and are working as quickly as possible to get a hotfix out to resolve it as soon as we possibly can.

We apologies for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding with this matter. Hold on tight!”

Update: Although not officially confirmed, Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure might be seeing a physical release on Switch. A boxart image has surfaced on 365Games:



Original: Merge Games and Prospect Games announced today that Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure will be heading to Switch in Q4.

Below is an overview of the game:

“Assuming the guise of Newbie, a cardboard box, players must bounce and roll their way through glorious 3D worlds filled with scenic vistas, mountains, islands and the like. Newbie’s lot in life is to prove his worth as a sentient, self-delivering package and in doing so save the Global Postal Service from bankruptcy.

As a living cardboard box, Newbie can explore epic worlds accepting missions and challenges as he goes. Along the way he’ll meet new friends, discover a plethora of collectables and uncover oodles of super-secrets. Of course, there are unfriendly inhabitants out there too, the Wild Cards and their boss are out to ruin the GPS. Only by completing challenges and collecting reward stamps will Newbie be able to square up to menacing world Bosses!

In addition to a single-player adventure mode, Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure also offers classic split-screen action. Up to four friends can gather together and challenge each other in madcap speed races and last-man-standing battles. Endless cardboard carnage awaits as players create their own customisable Tournaments, playing on dedicated multiplayer maps.”

We’ve included a trailer below that offers a good look at Unbox: Newbie’s Adventure.
