NBA Playgrounds 2

NBA Playgrounds is only available digitally on Switch. Its sequel, however, will also be sold physically. A listing on GameStop shows that 2K will offer NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 at retail.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is due out sometime this fall. Saber Interactive self-published the first title, though 2K is stepping in for the new game.

NBA Playgrounds 2 was originally planned for May 22. But just days before its release, a delay took place due to “exciting things” that were happening. 

NBA Playgrounds 2 has finally resurfaced. 2K announced today that it will publish the arcade-action sports game, which is seeing a slight name change to NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. The “over-the-top, two-on-two basketball experience will complement the best-selling NBA 2K simulation franchise and expand 2K’s footprint in the basketball video game space.”

NBA Playgrounds 2 will not be arriving next week as originally planned. Initially scheduled for May 22, Saber Interactive said today that the date has been moved out in the wake of “exciting things” happening with the franchise that the studio believes “will take arcade basketball to new levels.”

The developer wrote on Facebook:

Saber Interactive has set a release date for NBA Playgrounds 2. You’ll be able to purchase the game starting May 22 via the eShop. As was the case with the original, it’ll be eShop only. Pricing is set at $19.99.

Here’s a brief overview:

Putting the sport’s biggest players front and center, NBA Playgrounds 2 will launch with over 200 current and retired NBA players – including Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, DeMar DeRozan, Damian Lillard, Karl-Anthony Towns, Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Dr. J., Allen Iverson and Larry Bird. There are also new moves and power-ups to bust out, improved AI, and new player models and animations.
