2K announced the launch of the mobile version of its recently-released NBA 2K16 console game on Thursday, and it is now available to download in the app stores.
While we've been waiting for the return of the NBA season, we've already had a chance to get in on some of the action early by playing 2K Sports' MyNBA2K16, a card-collecting game where you get to build a team of competitive players to win matches and earn rewards, including VR (virtual currency) for NBA 2K16. Even though MyNBA2K16 features many console connections (like entering in your Locker Codes), NBA 2K16 allows gamers to get the console experience while on-the-go.
Like the console version, NBA 2K16 features My Career mode, along with Season modes and the new Blacktop Mode that takes the game to the streets. This mobile game is said to have "improved graphics and game performance" compared with previous titles from this franchise, and there are also new controls for a more seamless gameplay, including support for a physical controller. The new animations are said to provide "smoother movement and more realistic articulation combined with new controls."
Other things will remain the same, such as the NBA 2K Store where you can purchase equipment, courts, VC, etc.
NBA 2K16 will also feature a soundtrack curated by rapper DJ Khaled, as well as producers DJ Mustard and DJ Premier, and new teams from the Euroleague basketball system.
