A new developer diary for NBA 2K14 explores the new stick controls the team at Visual Concepts are introducing in the franchise’s latest installment.

Iterating upon the integration of right analog stick–controlled shooting, Visual Concepts extended that idea to dribbling and passing by designing NBA 2K14 so that by holding down L2, the pro stick becomes a pass stick. This allows players to have much more control over their passing, including its precision and how flashy their style is.

“It feels immediately natural, I think, to users who’ve played our game in the past, as well as new users,” lead gameplay designer Mike Wang says in the video. “With a lot more new functionality, a lot new shot types, a lot of new jumping moves, we’ve kind of brought everything together that fans have been asking for in the past. And I think NBA 2K14 is a game that just plays and feels a lot more like real basketball.”

In addition to the developer diary, 2K Sports uploaded a new NBA 2K14 TV spot that contains a few seconds of next-gen gameplay footage in action. Both videos are embedded below the post.

NBA 2K14 launches on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 tomorrow, October 1. The next-gen versions will launch alongside their respective consoles on November 15 (PlayStation 4) and November 22 (Xbox One).
