2K Sports today announced that NBA 2K13 will be available on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 in North America and October 5, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PSp and PC. A Wii U version will be available in the launch window, at a later date.
360 and PS3 preorders will receive NBA All-Star DLC presented by Sprite. This add-on content 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, complete with bells and whistles.
“The NBA All-Star package is our way saying ‘thank you’ to fans for their ongoing love of the NBA 2K series,” “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.
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.
