Who's Ready to Ball? NBA2K13 Officially Announced

2K Sports and Take Two Interactive have officially announced the release date for, what we’re anticipating to be the best sports game of the year, NBA 2K13. Complete with an all new Sprite Slam Dunk Contest mode and quite possible the best pre-order incentives (especially for Houston gamers), there’s really no reason for sports fanatics to not pick up NBA 2K13.

According to the NPD Group, the NBA 2K franchise is the top-rated NBA video game simulation franchise, and has been for twelve straight years. On October 2 gamers (read: North American gamers, as NBA 2K13 releases internationally 3 days later) will be able to hit the hardwood once again. A Wii U version of NBA 2K13 will be available in the launch window, at a later date.
 
Pre-ordering NBA 2K13 gets you a Sprite NBA All-Star DLC, which I’m frankly excited for as it’s set in Houston, the site of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. The DLC will allow fans to stage their own NBA All-Star Game, including three NBA All-Star events – the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout, BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest featuring all-new intuitive, pick-up-and-play controls.

 “The NBA All-Star package is our way saying ‘thank you’ to fans for their ongoing love of the NBA 2K series,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “This content provides a ton of depth and value to our fans, and it’s just the beginning of a lot of big news about NBA 2K13.”

Gamers can pit the NBA’s current superstars against classic players in both the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout and Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Rosters for both the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge and 2013 NBA All-Star Game will feature the 2012 All-Stars, with dynamic updates to the 2013 rosters once the participants are announced.
