Saber Interactive's NBA Playgrounds had a bumpy launch on the Nintendo Switch, with no online play available on release. Eventually this mode was patched in months later – after owners had been compensated with a free game – and at the start of this year the updated Enhanced Edition arrived, further refining the overall experience and adding even more content.
Now it seems Saber could be ready to move on from this series of tremulous events, with the Australian Classification Board yesterday revealing a sequel is on the way.
The date of this classification roughly aligns with the launch of NBA Playgrounds in May last year. Regardless of how soon the sequel could be arriving, like any good second entry in a series, we expect this one to build upon the foundations of the first game. Maybe it can even win over enthusiasts of NBA Jam.
Let us know in the comments if you would be excited about a potential sequel to NBA Playgrounds.
