Saber Interactive's NBA Playgrounds is hitting the Nintendo Switch eShop next week, it has been revealed.
We already knew that this NBA Jam-style title would be coming this month, but now we have a solid release date: May 9th. The game will cost $19.99 in North America.
Interestingly, it has also been revealed that NBA Playgrounds will occupy more space on the Switch's internal storage than the recently-released Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: 7.4GB, to be precise.
Here's the PR:
