Publisher Com2uS has announced that pre-registration for their upcoming basketball game, NBA Now 22, is available for iOS and Android. The game will release on mobile sometime this autumn and will boast over 4000 and active legendary pros.

NBA Now 22 looks to blend basketball simulation with card collecting, meaning players will assemble their roster by gathering various cards. Once players have decided their lineup, they can make offensive and defensive calls during matches with simple one-handed controls. You can check out a trailer for the game below.

The game will feature several modes, including Regular League, a PvP Battle Mode, and Live League and Prediction Mode. Some of these modes utilise real-world stats and fixtures in a bid to make the game feel a little bit more exciting and connected to the NBA.
