The sequel to last year’s NBA Playgrounds has managed to make news in recent months despite none of it being related to the actual game that will be eventually played. Delayed just five days before it was set to release back in May, NBA Playgrounds 2 became NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 when 2K Sports jumped on as publisher. That was followed by almost two months of silence as promotional focus shifted to NBA 2K19.

Today though the new official release date of October 16 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4) and November 9 (Nintendo Switch) was revealed, along with a price increase that takes NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 from the $20 it was originally going to release for to $30 now.

The second “launch trailer” for the game and added info has also revealed the inclusion of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant who were not in the original, and surely the association with 2K is what allowed for them to be brought on board.
