2K Games has revealed that NBA 2K17 will be getting a Legend Edition featuring Kobe Bryant as the cover athlete, which means he’s featured on the box art – not just once, but a full three times, apparently. Or maybe it’s just the one, and the other two are ghost Kobe Bryants.
Apart from the cover, there will also be memorabilia based on Kobe Bryant, and in-game content. If you pre-order the Legend Edition of the game, you will get a Bryant poster, trading cards, and a Black Mamba controller skin. On the digital side of things, you will get 30,000 of virtual currency, MyTEAM Bundle (with 3 packs of guaranteed Kobe limited use card), Nike Kobe 11 retirement shoes, Kobe #8 Mitchell and Ness jersey, a Kobe hoodie and more.
No cover athlete has been announced for NBA 2K17 as of yet. The Legend Edition of the game will launch only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will retail at $79.99. The standard version of the game will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC for $59.99. 2K has also put out a special trailer for the Legends Edition, which you can check out below.
