2K Sports has announced a partnership with USA Basketball to feature both the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s National Team and the 1992 Dream Team in NBA 2K13.
“As executive producer, letting fans go head to head with these legendary USA teams was extremely important to JAY Z,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We are excited to partner with USA Basketball, and share in JAY Z’s enthusiasm in making this a reality in NBA 2K13.”
The 2012 USA Basketball Men’s National Team has earned recognition as one of USA Basketball’s all-time greatest teams. They have most recently won the Gold Medal at London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Dream Team from 1992 is widely considered the most dominant sports team ever assembled, and featured 11 Hall of Fame players including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, Chris Mullin, David Robinson and Charles Barkley.
Developed by Visual Concepts, a 2K Sports studio, NBA 2K13 will be available on October 2, 2012 in North America and October 5, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.
