After a decade absent of arcade-style basketball on consoles 2017 will offer at least two games that fit that mold. The unlicensed free-to-play 3on3 Freestyle released earlier this year and now there’s also one to look forward to that features NBA licensing and both current and legendary players with NBA Playgrounds. The game will release as a $20 digital download in May on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Nice! I actually played a bit of 3on3 out of sheer desperation for anything Street like

Awesome news, as it definitely looks promising. I'm probably more partial to Jam than Street, but I do like the Street series as well, and this looks like it could be a good hybrid of the two concepts. I'm tempering my expectations somewhat and not expecting it to be as good as its predecessors from EA and Midway, but I hope it turns out alright. Perhaps it'll revitalise interest in the arcade basketball scene, and we'll get some more Jam and Street titles, too.

And hey, a PC release. Maybe we'll be able to mod it!

Reminds me a little bit of Super Mega Baseball the way the players are sort of caricatures of themselves.

This is going to give us an idea of how much demand there is for basketball games on the switch. The response seems to be very positive especially from the Nintendo community so that's a good sign.

Looks like you can add Chauncey Billups and Jason Kidd(i think?) to the list of historic players. Also looks like you aren't stuck with picking players from 1 team. (Y)

This roster is much deeper than I thought it would be. Ray Allen, Shawn Kemp, and Mitch Richmond shown. I do hope that Westbrook face gets fixed though.

Looks like players on their 1997 teams.

But then Kidd & Chauncey earlier on teams from 2007/2008.

I think we could be looking at squads or legends grouped into specific years.

I wonder if there's an issue getting the Supersonics into the game, too. Obviously EA did it with NBA Jam: On Fire Edition and 2K has done it with the 1996 Sonics beginning with NBA 2K11, but I'd suggest they have more clout with the NBA. But yeah, era/season-specific Legends seems likely too, and it's a logical way of organising them.

They'll probably have rosters similar to NBA JAM, although I hope it's more expanded than NBA JAM

Maybe. Not sure how far you can go but I hear most games using the unreal engine 4 are fairly modder friendly.

When people where saying It had a Jam/Street influence, I thought it would be much more Jam inspired. You can really see both of the game in the movements and animations.

Surprisingly well done. (Y)

Disappointed it's not a street vol. 2 clone lol but it's cool. Looks like instead of the gamebreaker meter you fill up a bar for the lottery which is an interesting but similar concept.

I have to admit that I'm a little turned off by the upgrade system and bonus points on perfectly timed shots, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt until I've actually played it.

I'd like that, though it's probably not an option in the tournament mode (especially online). It kind of reminds me of the Hot Spots in NBA Jam TE, which were my least favourite feature in what is otherwise one of my all-time favourite arcade basketball games. I'd always turn them off.

Kemp was not fat for his first 2 seasons with the Cavs (He had one chubby season, his 3rd and last with the team), and averaged 20 PPG for them (highest of his career). Here is him in 1998 in great shape.

He was certainly bigger with POR and ORL. But I would have no issues using a Cavs Kemp.

Yeah, but Kemp with the Cavs is less memorable than Kemp with the Sonics

Well clearly, but... two points I was trying to make.

1. He was not fat with the Cavs his first two years (Which is the majority of the time he spent with them)
2. I certainly wouldn't mind using a Cavs Kemp

The Dell Curry/Steph Curry combination would be a fun one as well.

No Jason Williams? He would be a perfect player for the game like this.

Shocked he isn't in it...

I also feel like he would gladly give them permission to use him... but, I don't know him personally.. so who knows.

Good point. Perhaps he'll be one of the players that's added later; he's certainly a good candidate.

Historically, they have been. MJ is exclusive to 2K these days, though.

With the arcade-style game NBA Playgrounds — which launches May 9 for $19.99 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One — developer Saber Interactive is looking to fill a market niche that publishers like Electronic Arts have left wide open. And from what I’ve seen so far, the independent studio may have a hit on its hands.


May 9th release.

The person playing the game in the video shot a fade away 3 with Blake Griffin right off the bat. Should have their basketball game rights taken away

Key points of interest from the Polygon article:

  • There are over 300 dunks in the game.
  • Lottery Pick boosts include hot spots that multiply the point value of the shot, and debuffs for your opponent such as halving the length of their shot clock.
  • The shot clock is at 12 seconds, rather than the usual 24.
  • Four player local multiplayer is supported, along with two player head-to-head online. An early update will add four player online support. Post-release support will also include roster updates.
  • Players are unlocked with card packs, though there won't be any microtransactions (at least initially).
  • Each team has at least three active players in addition to retired players. More players will be added later, though Charles Barkley and Kobe Bryant are two noteworthy players Saber doesn't have access to.
  • A dunk contest and three-point shootout are planned to be added post-release.

It all sounds pretty good for the most part. I'm a bit iffy on the shot clock being so short, but with the pace of the game, it might be an appropriate rule change. I'm also still not a huge fan of the idea of the points multipliers for perfect releases and whatnot, but I'll give it a chance. The plans for post-release support sound great if they can make it all happen.

Those post-release plans are pretty great. Happy to see 4 player online as well. I don't think that was in NBA Jam: OFE?

It's nice to hear about post release additions. There's been a lot of good things said about this game, it almost makes me worried that it gets over hyped and actually sucks. I hope I'm wrong
