As it turns out, 2K's decision to include a massive roster of NBA legends in NBA 2K12
was a smart one. In the absence of any NBA season at the moment, and with it in danger of being canceled altogether very soon, this year was the perfect time to reflect on seasons past.NBA 2K12
came out of the locker room and hit the retail court to universal acclaim, improving on its nearly perfect gameplay from last year. Critics have been calling it the best basketball sim ever. If you agree, you may be waiting to get your hands on even more content. Well, soon you can. 2K Sports announced today the upcoming DLC package titled "Legends Showcase". With the new DLC, you'll be able to take your roster of 150+ legends and play on the streetball courts for a variety of game types like team sizes of 1-on-1 to 5-on-5 and mini-games like HORSE and 21. Working in a reverse manner of the normal game, you can unlock current stars to create rosters of past and present ballers.
The entire DLC will use a cel-shaded animation style, ensuring it will even look unique when compared to the main game. Most appealing is the new Legends Quick Match, which allows for use of the NBA's Greatest teams against online opponents.
The DLC package is due out around the holidays and will be priced at 800 MSP.
