Well, then – here’s your first look at NBA 2K22 “gameplay”. We put that in quotes not necessarily to be snarky, but to note that it’s not technically gameplay at all. Alright, there’s no doubt this is captured using PlayStation 5 footage, but all of the fancy camera angles aren’t really representative of what you’ll see when playing the release yourself.
Despite that, it’s a well-cut trailer, and showcases the series’ insane face scans in their best possible light. We’re particularly fond of some of the edits, like where Luka Dončić temporarily transforms into another Dallas Mavericks legend: Dirk Nowitzki. A new Courtside Report, digging into the nuts-and-bolts of this year’s title, is schedule to follow later this week.
