May NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch Players rejoice as Saber Interactive have at last begun distribution of the long awaited Nintendo Switch update that will allow Switch users to play online with others in tournaments and matches.
That is not all the new update brings as it also comes with 15 new players that you can unlock in-game and has also had some tweaks to the shooting system. Below is the news update taken from the NBA Playgrounds News Channel on Nintendo Switch
Many thanks for the continued support! We have the best players in the world and we are privileged to serve you.
Update 1.1.3 for Nintendo Switch brings the heat! Online is here at last. Play online, compete is ranked matches for top spots in the leaderboard and challenge your friends, enemies and other players. Game on! With the new Challenge feature, you’ll be able to directly challenge another player to a game on the Playgrounds. All you have to do is agree on a code, open the online mode, switch to Challenges, enter that code and face each other.
In response to great feedback, we’ve also tweaked the entire shooting system from jump shots, to threes, to dunks, layups, and everything in-between. We’ve redone the timing, added a meter, and clarified the entire system. Keep those comments coming!
As a big thank you to our rabid fans, we’ve also added 15 new players, including Isaiah Thomas and Dennis Rodman! Those two all-stars and 13 others can be unlocked regularly through player packs, earned during tournaments or when leveling up your profile.
