Thanks to 3D-scanning, the sneakers featured in “NBA Live 18” are incredibly realistic.

When it comes to basketball video games, many would agree that sneaker designs are as important as the gameplay. Luckily for us, EA Sports’ upcoming title “NBA Live 18” doesn’t seem to disappoint.

In a YouTube clip (watch below) by QJB, he gives us a sneak peek of what to expect. Sponsored by EA Sports, the video features official gameplay footage, as well as screenshots of sneakers found in the game.

We spied a few noteworthy kicks, including the Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Top Three”, the UA Curry 3, the Nike Air Foamposite One “Galaxy”, and the Kobe 11 Elite. We were really impressed by how they looked, to say the least.

According to QJB, he said that the video game company really “stepped up” on the game’s animation and graphics. Besides better sneaker designs, fans can also look forward to their favorite players executing their signature moves and celebrations in the game. Even the game’s basketball venues look amazing.
