The version for the Wii System is available now in North America and will be available internationally on November 19, 2012.
Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports said:
“NBA 2K13 represents the greatest year-to-year leap we have made in the franchise’s history. Our partnership with JAY Z brought a new dynamic to the game, and really elevated it to new heights.”
This year, 2K Sports transcends sports video games 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 game’s 24-song soundtrack, and lent his artistic vision to its interactive menus, pregame introductions, and more. NBA 2K13 also introduces the Control Stick, which gives players more control by mapping all dribbling and shooting to the right analog stick, as well as the long-awaited matchup between the 1992 “Dream Team” and 2012 U.S. Men’s National Team.
JAY Z said:
“Partnering with a great franchise such as NBA 2K13 has been a unique experience. The best basketball video game is now a premier entertainment experience. ”
NBA 2K13 is the latest iteration in the top-rated and top-selling NBA 2K franchise, which has sold-in more than 11 million copies and garnered more than 45 Sports Game of the Year Awards over the last two years.
