NBA 2K13 will be making its way onto digital basketball courts on October 2, 2012 in the US and internationally on October 5, 2012, 2K Sports announced today. The game will be releasing on major consoles, PSP, and PC, and will release as a launch title on Wii U.
Fans that pre-order the game will also receive an NBA All-Star content pack that will be set in Houston, the site of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game and 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.
Rosters for both the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge and 2013 NBA All-Star Game will feature the 2012 All-Stars, with updates to the 2013 rosters once participants are announced.
“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,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports.
