Basketball Slam 2020 is one of Philippine-based developer Ranida Games’ highlight titles; after all, it does feature teams from the Philippine Basketball Association, the first professional basketball league in Asia and the second oldest in the world.
Now, players on PC can finally play this locally-loved basketball game as Ranida Games announced that PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition will release on PC via Steam! This Pinoy basketball game will go live on Steam Early Access sometime in August 2020.
In case you’re unfamiliar, PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition is a 2v2 arcade-style basketball game that features exaggerated gameplay where anything goes; think of it as a modern version of 90s arcade classics such as NBA Jam and Street Dunk. Unlike a more serious basketball title where players must have a proper game plan, PBA Basketball Slam features pure, high-octane action complete with lots high-flying dunks.
While the game will release first on Early Access, PBA Basketball Slam on PC will feature full keyboard and controller support, as well as local and Remote Play multiplayer modes. Finally, the game’s Campaign 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.
