NBA Starting Five ships
Konami of America announced today that NBA Starting Five for the PlayStation 2 has shipped to retailers. Konami stated "the game [is] fast-paced and emphasizes the player models and animations." ESPN NBA 2Night 2002 was the company's previous project, and NBA Starting Five is said to be a great improvement from that format.
"This is the most accessible and exhilarating basketball game that Konami has shipped thus far," said Robert Goff, product manager at Konami of America. "By improving on our strengths, we're kicking off our new basketball game with style, and setting a strong precedent for the future."
