When developer Saber Interactive first announced NBA Playgrounds, it said that the game would be released in May. However, no official release date was announced as the calendar turned to May.
With May underway, Saber announced NBA Playgrounds will launch May 9 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game will be available digitally at a price of $19.99.
The two-on-two arcade basketball title that takes hints from NBA Jam and NBA Street will feature current and former NBA players on street courts. The initial roster includes legends such as Magic Johnson, Allen Iverson and Shaquille O’Neal.
