‘NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition’ is Now Available on Apple Arcade – TouchArcade

Hey, sports fans! And video game sports fans! I know it’s sometimes not the same thing. I know many basketball fans, video or otherwise, are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the latest in 2K Sports’ long-running hoops series on Apple Arcade. Well, wait no more, friends. NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition () is now available in your App Store of choice. Go get that download started now, and then come back here to have a little read about the details. It could be a minute or two.

Yes, you need a heavy one 10.8 GB free on your device to download and install the game. If you compare that to the versions of the game on other devices, that’s actually quite economical. But there’s no two ways about it, that’s a big pants game. Fortunately, that emphasis also refers to the contents of the game. You get the usual experience here, with controller support and all. Everything you loved about last year’s version? Here it is again. There are also expected updates like new rosters and more. This season’s cover athlete is Allen Iverson, and for longtime fans of the franchise that’s a great look back at where it all began. Iverson was on the cover of the very first game, NBA 2K on the beautiful SEGA Dreamcast.

But that’s just window dressing. What is really new? There are apparently some new modes including The Endorsement, some new customizations for MyPLAYER and MyCOURT, and some legendary showdowns in The Greatest Fantasy Team challenge, and more. I’m not really sure how it all shakes, because it sounds pretty familiar even to my ears. But if the App Store description says it’s new, it should be! No one interferes with the internet.

As mentioned, most of what you saw in last year’s version is carried over here. You can play in Quick Match, go all-out in MyCAREER, take on a more supervisory role in The Association mode, play online in real time, and enjoy cross-platform play across the entire Apple ecosystem. I recommend playing with a controller, but you can also make do with the time-honored touch controls if needed.

Okay, that should be enough time to finish downloading. Or maybe not, if you’re an avid reader. You can only take me so far. NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition: here it is, it’s now, it’s potential wow. Put that meat on a plate and dig in, Apple Arcade subscribers. Steak sauce… OPTION.
