One of the top selling sports games of the 2000s was just updated with a new chapter. 2K Sports has officially released NBA 2K12 for Xbox 360, PlayStation, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, PSP,  and Windows PC.

“Hoops fans have long argued about the hypothetical outcomes among basketball’s most legendary players and storied teams,” said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. “We took that passion to heart in creating NBA 2K12, giving gamers the opportunity to end the debate once and for all with 15 electrifying basketball icons inNBA’s Greatest mode.”

NBA Legends like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, and Julius Erving are all playable characters in the NBA’s Greatest mode feature. NBA 2K12 also features a new shooting mechanic with Total Shot Stick Control and an all-new post-play system. 

“It’s amazing to see the attention to detail that 2K Sports captured in creating me and these great NBA players,” said six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan. “I’m honored to be part of a game that gives millions of fans a look into our careers, especially with the level of authenticity and detail that NBA 2K12 has.”
