PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition Early Access This Month

Ranida Games announces PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition will enter Early Access this month on Steam, offering the PC edition of a mobile hoops game. The PBA stands for the Philippine Basketball Association, shattering our dreams of a basketball simulation from the Professional Bowlers Association. The Early Access Teaser shows off two-on-two gameplay featuring players with big heads, and we're not just talking about their egos. Here's more on the game, its origins, and how it's being adapted to the new platform:
PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition is a 2-on-2 arcade-style full court basketball game with exaggerated gameplay where anything goes. It features epic moves, high-flying dunks, a unique mix of fun, and gameplay experience inspired by the 1990s basketball arcade game NBA Jam and Street Dunk.

The Arcade Edition will have multiplayer features with full keyboard and controller support and will allow up to four players to play together via local multiplayer or play with friends remotely via Steam's Remote Play Together. Campaign Mode and Quick Game features will also be included on its Early Access release.

"Bringing Basketball Slam to PC will allow more players to enjoy the game and will also allow us to enhance the game further, says Ben Banta, CEO of Ranida Games. "With the success of the mobile game having more than 10 million downloads worldwide, we've been able to polish the user interface and experience for the PC version, and more features will be added as we go through development,” he added.
