NBA 2K16: Michael Jordan Named Cover Star for Special Edition

It has come to that time of year again when cover stars are the focus for sports games. 2K have announced today that Michael Jordan will feature on this year’s Special Edition of NBA 2K16.

Along with Jordan featuring on the front cover the Limited Edition release will celebrate his Hall of Fame legacy and will include:

  • Jordan NBA 2K16 Poster;
  • Jordan Fathead Wall Cling;
  • Digital Jordan shoes for your MyPLAYER
  • Digital Jordan T-shirt for your MyPLAYER
  • Digital Jordan jersey for your MyPLAYER;
  • 30,000 Virtual Currency;
    • 3 Emerald Packs AND a new Special Edition Exclusive Moments Card.

With Michael Jordan’s inclusion as cover star this will be the third time he has been given this honour and he had this to say:

“I’m excited about this year’s NBA 2K’s Special Edition,” said Michael Jordan. “NBA 2K16 allows gamers young and old to not only experience and re-create some of my greatest moments on the basketball court but also customize their players with Jordan shoes and apparel.”

While Jordan features on the Special Edition which is priced at $79.99 on Xbox One and Playstation 4, it was also previously announced by 2K that Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, Houston Rockets’ James Harden and New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis would be making their cover debuts for the Standard Edition of NBA 2K16.

As Michael Jordan is a legend of NBA it’ll be interesting to see how well the Limited Edition sells, though I doubt people will buy it for the shoes, t-shirt and jersey additions for MyPLAYER.
