2K has announced that they will publish NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, the slightly rebranded sequel to Saber Interactive’s arcade-action sports game, NBA Playgrounds.
The news comes after the developer had announced that the over-the-top, two-on-two basketball experience had suffered a last-minute delay, although had teased that there were “exciting things brewing” that would “take arcade basketball to new levels.”
“The original NBA Playgrounds was a fantastic throwback to the glory days of arcade-action sports,” explains Visual Concepts president Greg Thomas.
“The new NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will step up this energy and attitude big time – with a bit of added NBA 2K flair – giving fans of both franchises an exciting new way to game with friends around the world.”
Saber Interactive CEO Matt Karch adds: “No one is more committed to bringing fans a great basketball experience than 2K. We can’t wait to share more on how we’re teaming up to make NBA 2K Playgrounds 2’s incredible arcade action bigger and better than ever for players.”
NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Fall 2018.
