It seems 2K sports is staying with their NBA legends from NBA 2K11 for the theme. In this trailer you’ll see Michael Jordan (cover athlete…..again), Larry Bird (Cover athlete for limited supply of PS3 copies), Dr. J, Magic Johnson (Cover athlete for limited supply of PS3 copies too), and even Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The trailer gives you a little preview to the NBA’s Greatest mode that will be brand new to this year’s game.
The NBA’s Greatest mode is looking to be like the Jordan mode in NBA 2K11 but instead of one player it is the careers of 15. I am personally excited for this addition and I think paying tribute to pass players is awesome. Hopefully next year they will let me use Wilt Chamberlin like they did in those NBA Street games. NBA 2K12 will be released on October 4th with Michael Jordan being the main cover athlete. The Larry Bird and Magic Johnson covers will be in limited supply on both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
