2K Games has today published the latest title in the hugely popular NBA 2K series, predictably titled NBA 2K13. Available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii and PlayStation Portable (PSP), NBA 2K13 will also be made available on Wii U after the system’s launch.
NBA 2K13 is the latest iteration in the top-rated and top-selling NBA 2K franchise, which has sold-in more than eleven million copies and garnered more than forty five Sports Game of the Year Awards over the last two years. This year, 2K Sports transcends sports videogames by joining forces with multi-platinum recording artist JAY Z, who serves as the Executive Producer of NBA 2K13. The music icon personally curated the videogame’s twenty four-song soundtrack, and lent his artistic vision to its interactive menus, pre-game introductions, and more.
NBA 2K13 also introduces the Control Stick mechanic, which gives players more control by mapping all dribbling and shooting to the right analog stick, as well as the long-awaited match-up between the 1992 “Dream Team” and 2012 U.S. Men’s National Team.
Developed by Visual Concepts, a 2K Sports studio, NBA 2K13 is now available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PSP and Windows PC. The Wii U version of the title will be available around the international console launch on Friday, 30th November 2012, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the NBA 2K franchise.
