Reflective of the classic 1993 basketball arcade game NBA Jam, developer Saber Interactive has revived that retro appeal with an upcoming video game, NBA Playgrounds.

Consisting of a 2-on-2 basketball match, the game offers a mixture of modern-day and former NBA stars such as LeBron James, Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook, Dirk Dowitzki and legends like Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson. As shown in the preview above, expect a street-style atmosphere with a barrage of dunks and special effects for an amazing gameplay.

NBA Playgrounds will debut in May for $20 USD via download only, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch.

In other video game news, PaRappa the Rapper is returning this year.
