It’s a declaration of intent that goes beyond their admittedly excellent NBA 2K ports, which have proven time and again that they absolutely mean business. The remarkable thing about these titles is that they are content complete, run exceptionally well, and are frankly a marvel to play in handheld mode. This is a triumphant achievement for the dev teams involved, and hopefully an indication that more games will make the leap down the line.
