The NBA preseason is toast and the regular season may not be far behind. Good thing 2K Sports has fans’ back, releasing NBA 2K12 just in time for basketball fans to avoid getting the shakes. NBA 2K12 is now available at retail for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii, plus the requisite less-glamorous systems.
In NBA 2K12, fans can take control of 15 hoops icons, including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Julius Erving in NBA 2K12’s all-new NBA’s Greatest mode. This is in addition to the normal modern-day players and teams we’ve come to expect.
Each of the 15 basketball legends was meticulously re-created with an uncanny level of detail, including period-specific depictions of their arenas, team uniforms, signature moves and even historically accurate broadcast presentation styles. That right there is reason to get excited, considering we all know just how great 2K Sports’ presentation styles have become.
NBA 2K12 also features a revamped shooting mechanic with Total Shot Stick Control and an all-new post-play system, which allow fans to experience an unprecedented basketball simulation.
