2K Sports announced today that NBA 2K12 will offer three separate covers for the PS3 and Xbox 360 featuring three of the NBA’s greatest legends of all time, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Loved MJ on the cover last year and this is a nice little homage.
The new stylized NBA 2K12 covers are a unique, one-time departure from the traditional 2K Sports brand artwork, and will spotlight each legendary athlete on his famous team: the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics, and Los Angeles Lakers. The covers featuring Bird and Johnson will be available at launch in a limited quantity.
The cover artwork for NBA 2K12 was created by Adam Larson of Adam & Co. NBA 2K12 can now be pre-ordered from leading video game retailers nationwide, and will be available on October 4, 2011, for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360, Wii system, PSP and Windows PC.
