Arcade sports games have always been among fan-favorite games to play when between big game releases. Over the years sports games have changed to full-on simulations and I think they have never enjoyed them as much as those older arcade-style games. Now, whenever an arcade sports game hits the stores I try to pay attention and Ranida Games made a perfect fun game to play, PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition.

PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition is a new PC port of the famous mobile game Basketball Slam 2020! which has accrued over 10 million downloads since it was released. The PC port will feature 2v2 arcade gameplay with over the top physics and dunks. The game can be played with controller or keyboard and mouse and supports up to 4 players in local play. By using Steam’s Remote Play Together feature, you can even play with your friends living far or near and even play in your living room!

“Bringing Basketball Slam to PC will allow more players to enjoy the game and will also allow us to enhance the game further. 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.”

— Ben Banta, CEO of Ranida Games

At release, the game will come with campaign and quickplay game modes with more to come during development. A number of authentic Philippine Basketball Association teams and players will also be included. Ranida Games is based out of the Philippines so I think it’s awesome they are able to give their league representation all over the world! Fun fact, the PBA is the second oldest basketball league in the world and the first one in Asia. That is so cool, isn’t it!

PBA Basketball Slam: Arcade Edition will be launching on Steam Early Access later this month.
