NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition Officially Launches On Apple Arcade

2K Games and Apple Arcade announced this morning that NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition has officially launched on the mobile gaming platform. In case you're wondering, no, it is not the fully maximized version of the game that you can play on PC and consoles, as that would be too big for a lot of devices to have. But it does come with several staples of the game as you will be able to experience a variety of exciting game modes including Arena and Blacktop Quick Matches, Online Multiplayer matches with friends and some unique MyCAREER storylines. You can read more about it below and check out the trailer as it is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac devices right now.
