Developer Saber Interactive has confirmed today via a press release that those of you who purchased NBA Playgrounds on the Nintendo Switch before the pending update which will bring online play functionality will get a free copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn which launches on the platform this fall.
“We had every intention of launching online play for NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch within days of release, but, despite our best efforts, it didn’t play out that way,” said Matthew Karch, CEO of Saber. “We sincerely apologize for the delay and want to let everyone know the fix will be coming very soon. But words are cheap, and games are not. So we’re giving everyone that bought NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch before the online play patch hits a free copy of Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn on Switch when it is available this fall to express our gratitude.”
