2K Sports has officially announced its newest cover athlete. In predictable fashion, soon-to-be-retired LA Laker, Kobe Bryant, will grace the front page of NBA 2K17. The special release is dubbed the “Legend Edition” and will include a limited edition poster, Black Mamba controller skin and two Panini Kobe trading cards. In addition to its physical bonuses, you’ll also receive in-game add-ons such as digital currency and Kobe apparel for your MyPlayer character. NBA 2K17 is currently available now for pre-order here at a price of $80 USD and is expected to officially release in September.
