Sports fans that own a Nintendo Switch are currently thrilled by the assistance of 2K Sports on the platform, what with each WWE 2K18 and NBA 2K18 making their technique to the system this fall. But what a few of them might not know is that 2K could incredibly nicely have a hidden agenda for its forthcoming basketball sim.
The game’s official solution web page within the Nintendo Retailer indicates that the forthcoming dunkfest will probably be compatible with Nintendo’s line-up of Amiibo figurines. It really is noted that the technology are going to be incorporated in to the game somehow, but stops just brief of listing how, precisely.
Now, this could imply one of two points. The initial is that 2K Sports may be generating a line-up of exclusive Amiibo figurines for the game, like a Steph Curry figure or some thing like that.
Or, and this is probably the more clear option, the game are going to be compatible with all the Amiibo figures which might be available, delivering particular boosts to players in NBA 2K18, or, dare we dream, placing Mario in to the on-court action. It wouldn’t be the very first time that the plumber has created his way to the sports scene within a dream crossover. Back on the Nintendo GameCube, Mario, alongside Peach and Luigi, appeared in two EA Sports Big titles – SSX On Tour and NBA Street V3.
We’ve got some time to see exactly what the game will do, considering that NBA 2K18 is not due out for a handful of additional weeks yet. But hopefully either 2K or Nintendo will come clean and give us an notion of just what we can expect from Switch-exclusive characteristics for the game. It’d surely sell much more copies, that is for confident.
NBA 2K18 releases on September 19th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch, along with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
