Take a good, long look at NBA 2K16 in its biggest trailer yet

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

2K Sports has made something of an annual event out of its "Momentous" trailers for the NBA 2K series, which typically arrive shortly before launch, and the one for NBA 2K16 doesn't disappoint.

The trailer, which contains about two and a half minutes of in-game footage, shows off players throwing down thunderous dunks, crashing to the floor, faking out opponents, draining jump shots and getting very, very pumped up about all of it. Seriously, check out Joakim Noah's bulging neck tendons.

NBA 2K16 will be released Sept. 29 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Pre-order customers can start playing tomorrow, four days early. For more on NBA 2K16, check out a trailer for the game's upgraded studio show below.
