The original NBA Playgrounds game on the Switch eShop had a rough launch. There was no online play on release - requiring players to wait several months before they could access this mode. Eventually, they were compensated with a free game.

Saber Interactive has since moved onto development of the sequel and already missed the released date. This was all because 2K Sports took over the publishing rights and rebranded the title to NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

With the game meant to arrive on the Switch eShop soon, a listing on BestBuy Canada reveals the title will now also be available on the Switch in physical form for $39.99. 2K has not yet made an official announcement regarding such a release.
