83

NBA 2K24, it’s the game we’re all crossing our fingers for on the Nintendo Switch this year. This franchise never fails to deliver that on-court buzz, but does it deliver on the Switch? Well, maybe it’s not quite as impressive as it would be on new-generation consoles, but it still hits hard. Each game, each dunk and every hard-earned victory still feels unique and rewarding. Plus, the developers have kept the controls pretty much the same, so you’ll be dropping buckets in no time.

 

This guide’s got the full rundown on the Switch controls, whether you’re rocking Joy-Con or Joy-Con Grip. Have you ever been balling out and suddenly forgotten which button is for the epic slam dunk? Don’t stress… We’ve got you. Keep this guide on deck, and you’ll never fumble a play.
