That's pretty soon! If y'all have good things to say about it, I might make it one of my first downloads for the console. Cool

Preview from Polygon

----

The gameplay is looking fun enough but the commentary seems like it'll annoy after a bit as he doesn't sound as fun as the NBA Jam announcer.

Looks good in motion, I just hope you can mute the commentary

All features for this won't be available for the Switch on launch, And so it begins... no word I'm what or for how long though.

It won't have online day one but it isn't as bad as you think.

The online play for NBA Playgrounds Switch will *not* be available at launch – it will arrive a few days after launch via an update. Once this update comes out, the Switch version will have the exact same functionality as the PC, PS4, and Xbox One version – this means you can connect with people online and play against them 1v1, and there are online leaderboards. However online tournaments will not be up and running at launch for any platforms, this functionality will come at a later date via an update. We’ll share details on timing  for the online tournaments as soon as we get it.

So, I went ahead and bought this yesterday & for folk who will be playing mainly in single player there isn't much content for you so definitely only pick it up if you play a lot of local MP or will be interested in playing online when that get's added soon. The game looks oddly blurry when played in handheld mode as well.

The core gameplay is really fun though with simple controls that make it easy to pick up but still has an element of skill to learn when it comes to shooting even with the easier to pull off over the top dunks. The lottery pick system keeps matches interesting and they can sway a match back in your favour if you're down by say 10 pts, only one of the powers seems over powered so far & that is the lightning ball which is a shot that will never miss no matter how bad you time it. The devs do seem keen to support the game post launch as well with new game modes & players so the content issue for single player is at least being looked at.

If this had come out a year or two ago, I'd have been confident I'd be getting into the co-op. As is, I don't think I'll pick it up but I am looking forward to having a pop at the weekend.
