NBA 2K17 Legend Edition
Last year, it was former NBA star Michael Jordan that graced the cover of the most expensive NBA 2K16 bundle gamers could buy. This year, Visual Concepts and 2K Games are honoring Bryant with his own cover. Revealing Bryant as the cover athlete for at least one version of NBA 2K17 makes sense today. The Lakers didn’t make the league playoffs.
Bryant’s likeness will grace NBA 2K17 Legend Edition. Doused in the Lakers’ signature purple accent, the cover features him in three different poses. On the left Bryant is celebrating the Lakers winning an NBA championship. On the right there’s a picture of his formidable jump shot. The center of NBA 2K16 Legend Edition’s cover is dominated by Kobe raising his right hand as if to bid farewell to the sport. 2010 was the last time that Kobe Bryant was featured on the cover of an NBA 2K game.
Like the Michael Jordan Edition before it, NBA 2K17 Legend Edition comes stuffed with some physical and digital extras for hardcore fans of the franchise. Physical items include a limited edition post of Bryant and a Black Mamba controller skin. Buyers also get 2 Panini Kobe trading cards to add to their collectibles stash.
As for digital extras, there’s plenty to be had there too. 30,000 in Virtual Currency is included with NBA 2K17 Legend Edition. A MyTeam Bundle+ includes 3 different backs of MyTeam cards. 2K is guaranteeing that it least one of those packs will include a Free Agent card for Kobe Bryant.
2K Games and Visual Concepts are also throwing in some digital extras for players to use on their character. They include Kobe’s 2K X1 shoes, #8 Mitchell & Ness Jersey and a hoodie. NBA 2K17 Legend Edition will cost .99. It’s only coming to gamers on Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PS4.
NBA 2K17 New Features
NBA 2K has always placed a heavy emphasis on a player’s real-life skills and stats. The idea is that the best athletes playing for teams in the real world should be the best athletes in the game. When a gamer is playing a team with Kobe Bryant, it should feel like they’re actually playing against Kobe Bryant, not a computer simulation that only looks like him. Visual Concepts is trying to do a better job of accurately simulating some of the NBA’s top players.
The studio briefly tested some of its work to accurately depict all-stars with a temporary update to NBA 2K16. With the update, players who took shots that Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry would sink in real-life weren’t penalized like they would have been in previous games since those shots are risky for the overwhelming majority of NBA players, according to Forbes. The changes the studio tested with NBA 2K16 seem like a lock for NBA 2K17. Besides a hint at the balancing work, no other features for the game have been confirmed. Video Rating: / 5
