2K Sports announced the complete tracklist for the soundtrack of their upcoming NBA 2K10 game title, their 10th anniversary release.
The upcoming soundtrack features a cross-genre line-up of music by artists such as Kanye West, MGMT, K’naan, Metric, Ratatat and others, as well as an exclusive, original song from The Game, titled “Champion.”
2K Sports is renowned for its fusing of music and gaming, and say they will take this to a whole new level with the upcoming basketball title by utilizing several unique out-of-game opportunities to draw attention to the title’s featured artists. Past and present initiatives have included mixtapes, exclusive music downloads, music videos, in-game characters, live performances and music tours.
In NBA 2K10, some of the featured music artists will also make in-game cameos as playable characters–including Kanye West, The Game, Asher Roth, David Banner, Twista, Pitbull, and others. Each of the in-game artists will also appear exclusively in NBA 2K10’s “Streetball” mode.
