We have had a severe lack of arcade, street-style sports games recently thanks to the massive market share of the big AAA sports simulation games. FIFA, Madden and NBA’s prowess is undeniable in the sports scene at the moment and none of the big series have any smaller, street-style sub-series. 3on3 Freestyle is here to hopefully remedy that.
From Korean developer Joycity, 3on3 Freestyle promises “a unique arcade basketball experience for the PS4”. The developer has previously created the PC Freestyle series along with numerous mobile games. Wanting to “build a truly authentic street basketball game experience for everyone” Joycity spent months travelling and speaking to gamers and basketball fanatics alike to create the best game they could.
Much of the title’s skillset comes from the many unique characters available, each with their own appearance/physicality, playing style, and story along with unique signature moves and tricks.
Featuring online multiplayer as well as offline co-op 3on3 Freestyle is set to arrive sometime during the end of the year. If you are eager to try out the game right now there is a closed beta which you can currently sign up to over at the website.
