NBA fans are set to get a brand new gaming experience later this year.

Nifty Games, a newer studio known for its mobile-first focus development, has announced a partnership with both the league and its Players Association to bring a brand new basketball game to mobile devices.

The game, which is set to launch in late 2020, will feature full teams and venues.

“The NBA is one of the biggest sports leagues in the world, and Nifty Games is fired up to partner with the NBA and NBPA to deliver a new kind of mobile-first basketball to gamers worldwide,” said Jon Middleton, CEO of Nifty Games. “Mobile is the most accessible games platform in the world, and we’re focused on bringing NBA fans fast, authentic action with head-to-head mobile gaming that delivers NBA basketball and the teams and players fans love most.”

“Nifty Games has a unique vision for bringing the excitement and intensity of the NBA to fans around the world on their mobile devices,” said Matthew Holt, SVP of Global Partnerships at NBA. “We’re always looking for new ways to engage our fans and bring them closer to the teams and superstars of the NBA. The developers at Nifty Games have a strong track record of building genre-defining games and NBA fans will love what the team is creating.”

The new game joins the like of NBA 2K and NBA Live Mobile as the main titles vying for mobile players’ time. To capture that audience, Nifty Games is promising an authentic basketball experience that will focus on quick-session, head-to-head matchups on mobile devices.

As of now, no word on the cost of the game has been announced.
