Two weeks ago, the Nintendo Switch version of NBA Playgrounds received an update which added Online Play into the game. Due to that feature coming so late after its release, developer Saber Interactive decided to give its other game Shaq Fu; A Legend Reborn for free to any player who bought the Nintendo Switch version before the update released.

NBA Playgrounds was originally released on May 9th, 2017, and is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. You can check out our review by clicking here.
