Put Your Balls in Your Pocket & Play with Them Anywhere [NBA 2K13]
I promise, no more immature humor from this point on. I’m going to try really hard. Just the very cool news that 2K Sports has announced NBA®2K Everywhere!
Now you can enjoy NBA 2K pretty much anywhere you happen to be, ensuring you’ll always have balls in the palm of your h– dammit! Ensuring that you’ll have a “full-featured mobile version of NBA 2K13” to have and to hold on your iOS and/or Android devices.
NBA 2K Everywhere will extend the NBA 2K experience by offering players greater flexibility, more variety and new ways to play, at home or on the go, with these all-new social and mobile games. Additionally, both the mobile companion app and Facebook game enable players to feed data and experience right back into NBA 2K13 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, introducing a new level of connectivity and continuity to the NBA 2K experience.
The free companion app, MyNBA2K, will be available in October on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, and Kindle devices. Players can experience a series of entertaining mini-games including shooting practice, free throw drills, a dribbling course, and autograph signing. With intuitive multi-touch controls and a variety of pick-up-and-play training games, MyNBA2K will offer an easy way for players to stay connected to their MyCAREER and MyTEAM experience in NBA 2K13 while away from home.
MyNBA2K will be free, device be damned!
This may just be the most connected, accessible, gamified basketball video game yet. Go ahead, prove me wrong on that.
And, wait, there’s more.
NBA 2K: MyLIFE, 2K Sports’ first ever social game, will launch in October on Facebook. Players can import their MyCAREER avatars from NBA 2K13 to compete in skills competitions with friends, build their home-court environment, and play through experiences of an NBA superstar including earning endorsements and fostering relationships with fellow NBA stars. Accomplishments in NBA 2K: MyLIFE can help unlock clothing, dunk packages, and other rewards in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system versions of NBA 2K13.
For the second consecutive year, fans can also purchase an authentic, full-featured NBA simulation experience for their mobile devices with NBA 2K13 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. The new mobile game will be available in October and feature intuitive multi-touch controls, improved graphics and, for the first time, a new multiplayer mode via Bluetooth and Game Center (iOS version only). Fans can also relive some of the NBA’s most memorable games with the NBA’s Greatest Mode.
“Our console game will always be the heart of the NBA 2K franchise, but we want to go beyond that,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “Through NBA 2K Everywhere, fans can extend their NBA 2K experience wherever they go, whether it’s on the road with the mobile apps or socially with friends via Facebook. We’re offering more ways to experience NBA 2K than ever before.”
2K Sports’ Visual Concepts will sink NBA 2K13 from waaaay downtown on October 2 in North America and October 5 abroad. You’ll be able to enjoy the squeak of those sneakers on Xbox 360, PlayStation3, PSP, Wii and Windows PC.
A Wii U version of NBA 2K13 is on the way later this year. Would be silly to launch the game before there’s a console on which to play it…right? Meaning Wii U will NOT be launching before October 5! Clues! Take that, Nintendo!
Anyway, cool mobile/Facebook integration for this game. Get ready, folks. More and more, games want you on the leash at all times. With NBA 2K13, you’ll be able to pull it out of your pocket and bounce those balls any time you want. Prepare for a nonstop, fast and furious ballplay!
