NBA 2K23 has received a batch of fresh details courtesy of 2K, including confirmation of enhanced dribbling and shooting mechanics that come off the back of fan feedback that has helped shape this year’s franchise instalment.
Visual Concepts’ Mike Wang commented:
We value community feedback when deciding how to bring each version of NBA 2K to life, and this year’s gameplay enhancements reflect many of the changes our community was calling for the most.
From focusing on how players can attack the basket, to more realistic on-ball defense and a new tiered badge system, all the features we’ve brought to life in the game this year will create a more authentic gameplay experience that is enjoyable for everyone.
Meanwhile, players can enjoy shooting attributes that offers each signature jump shot its own unique stats that help you determine their effectiveness on the court. There will be five new shot meters to choose from at launch, and 2K will add 15 more for players to unlock throughout the year.
NBA 2K23 also enhances the Pro Stick with new gestures combos that afford new avenues of attack for shooters and passers alike.
NBA 2K23 is scheduled for release on September 9, 2022 for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
