Pump up your kicks and get all your stretches in; it's time for another round of arcade-style b-ball action as NBA Playgrounds 2 gets set to launch later this month. In less than two weeks on May 22 the game will hit PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC for the retail price of $19.99. 

NBA Playgrounds 2 is somewhat of a spiritual successor to the NBA Jam series, only you don't need a code for giant head mode, that's just how the players look. The character designs for the all-star roster, which features an impressive amount of all-time kings of the court, is undeniably cartoonish, but it fits right in with the over-the-top gameplay. Along with the who's who list of current NBA all-stars like Stephen Curry, LeBron James, and Kevin Durant, there are several all-time greats playable such as Dr. J, Larry Bird, and the Shaq-attack. Overall, there are more than 200 pros for players to choose from. 

There's also several brand new courts this time around along with functionality for online four-player games and dedicated servers to get players connected even quicker. NBA Playgrounds 2 will also feature a brand-new single-player season mode where gamers will get a chance to take their team through the regular season and take a shot at the playoffs. 

NBA Playgrounds 2 launches May 22, for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC for $19.99
