NBA 2K12 News Post


Multiple outlets are spilling the beans about NBA 2K12's newest mode: NBA's Greatest. The mode seems to be an extension of The Jordan Challenge mode that was available in NBA 2K11.

This time around Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Julius Erving, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and 10 other unannounced all-time greats will be featured in this new mode.

At this time, the unannounced players are not the only thing shrouded in mystery here. It's unclear how many different scenarios or teams will even be included in this mode. This is being intentionally done so fans debate who they think should be included, according to 2K Sports.

The folks at 2K Sports want to go even further when it comes to re-creating moments in the NBA's Greatest mode by mimicking broadcasts from the '80s and even '60s. This means different camera angles, replay styles or even black and white video in order to bring people into the historical aspects of these games.

The NBA's Greatest mode seems like a really smart one when considering the ongoing NBA lockout, as well as the success of The Jordan Challenge mode last year.

Sounds great! that looks like a pretty good Larry Bird.

And it looks like jerseys finally sit on the players' shoulders!!!

Nice. I liked the Dr. J screen as well, and seems like those are some Converse shoes. I just hope they don't put for each of these teams the starting five plus 7 generic guys...

Now...time to start figuring out who the other 10 players are...

I think that Drexler's Blazers will be there, since they're already in 2K11. What about Hakeem's Rockets?

EDIT:
Hey, it's not fair! Magic and Kareem played on the same team. Unless we have those 70's Bucks...?

YES! Jerseys aren't so baggy on classic players (based on these early screens). That's what made the short shorts look off in 2K11.

Nice. Shorts look a bit shorter there, hopefully they keep the length from 2K11 as well for 90's teams.

Oh look at those knee pads on Magic, finally!

From Kotaku.com

"Just like all of the fun stuff people reacted to last year, we'll have the short shorts and the 'fros," Argent said, "and each one will be broadcast as it appeared in that era, whether that's a technicolor look in the 1980s or black-and-white in the 1960s." Additional touches, such as wipes, graphics and replays, will feel authentic to the times."

I thought those last 3 screens were from 2K11. Where did you get them from?

From Kotaku.com

Also, many fans suggested that the historic recreations brought up in "The Jordan Challenge" would be perfect as a downloadable content series. Asked directly about DLC plans, Argent said only, "More to come on that."
