NBA 2K12 Cover Athletes Revealed

By Michelle Balsan, 7 years ago
Apparently cover athlete reveals are a pretty big deal. I mean, you all knew that already, but it seems that after the NFL and NHL revealed their cover athletes, the NBA just couldn't stand to be outdone.

So, Take-Two Interactive Software revealed today that NBA 2K12 would feature not one, but three cover athletes. To further up the ante, these cover athletes aren't just the hot ticket at the moment, but the game's greatest legends.

Created by Adam Larson, the Magic Johnson and Larry Bird versions of the cover will only be available as part of the first run of copies of NBA 2K12. After that, you'll just have to make due with Michael Jordan. As part of the deal which brought these three all-time greats to the covers of the title, Johnson, Bird, and Jordan will also be included in-game in the NBA 2K series for several years to come.

NBA 2K12 will be released on October 4th.
