NBA 2K13 News Post


Check out the NBA 2K13 Wii U screenshots, right here.

With more than 5 million copies sold worldwide and more than 25 Sports Game of the Year awards won, NBA 2K12 was another monster release for the biggest NBA video game simulation franchise in the world. This year, 2K Sports has joined forces with the legendary JAY Z as Executive Producer to transcend sports video games and take virtual hardwood to the next level. Featuring an enhanced MyCAREER mode and all-new gameplay features, NBA 2K13 will let gamers pit the best players in NBA history against the new dynasty of talent, including the much-debated matchup between the 2012 U.S. Men’s National Team and the 1992 “Dream Team.”
  • Wii U™ Launch Title – As a launch title to Nintendo’s new Wii U™console, NBA 2K13 will be the first choice for basketball fans on the new console.
  • Gatorade Biometric Scan – Think you have a feel for how your player is performing? Think again. The Gatorade Biometrics display provides an up-to-the-second look at your player’s mood and fatigue level in the game. A persistent “heartbeat” and dynamic hot/cold zones will keep you in tune with your player’s psyche as the game progresses.
  • A JAY Z Production – NBA 2K13 is produced by multi-platinum recording artist and hip-hop mogul JAY Z.
  • USA Basketball – Finally answer the question: Who would win a head-to-head duel between the 1992 Dream Team and the 2012 squad?
  • MyCAREER Mode – Build your MyPLAYER by giving him signature skills, and acquire your very own custom animations using Virtual Currency (VC). Includes all-new GM sit-down feature, new endorsement paths, improved in-game AI, and all-new swag including casual clothing, equipment, custom shoes and much more
  • NBA 2K “MyTEAM” – Collect players, uniforms, arenas and boosts to put together your own team. Track the talent marketplace that fluctuates based on real-life performance, and then take your team online to play against other players’ MyTEAMS in a new tiered matchmaking system.
  • Improved Gameplay features, including such innovations as:
− The Control Stick: For the first time ever, all dribble moves have been mapped to the right analog stick, as well as shooting, passing, and post moves. String together devastating crossovers and clutch shots for maximum control and effectiveness.
− Dynamic Shot Generator: Shots are now dynamically created on the fly, with all-new collision physics created in real-time.
− Signature Skills: Each player has unique abilities that can alter the course of a game. Players are modeled to impact the game in their own unique way, from Derrick Rose as a “Floor General” to Kevin Durant being “The Closer.” Learn to use each player’s unique ability and change the game on your terms.
− Revamped Passing System: Improved fast break passing gives players more control. Fire a bounce pass to a cutting teammate or go “Lob City” in transition.
  • Shoe Creator - One of the most flexible interfaces ever allow the user to customize up to 45 shoe components and layers from the ground up. Create original shoes from all the major shoe brands and deck your player out with his own signature creation.
  • Classic Teams – The best teams in NBA history are back, and can now be taken online. Challenge your friends with squads such as the ’96 Bulls and ’65 Celtics.
  • MORE Wii U™ EXCLUSIVE FEATURES TO BE ANNOUNCED

I've always been a pretty big Nintendo fan so I'll get a WiiU at some point. It's nice to see that Nintendo can finally focus on some sports games. The biggest problem I had with the Wii was the lack of professional sports games. The ones they had(like NBA 2k) were just very bad ports. However, this looks rather nice.

I'm guessing that line about classic teams will carry over the the ps3/360.....this is great news!

Pretty cool, don't think I'll buy the Wii U though. Think I'll stick to PS3 and/or PC.

"A 2K Sports representative clarified that NBA 2K13 doesn't have real-time physics per se" http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/8/10/3231973/nba-2k13-preview

"Dynamic Shot Generator: ... all-new collision physics created in real-time"

went to gamestop on thursday and paid my black wii u off, along with nba2k13, zombiu,ac3, and sonic allstar racing. can't wait to play 2k13 on wiiu with the gamepad. calling plays and making subs should be a breeze. just worried about how nintendo plans on handling the online gameplay got my fingers crossed that they don't drop the ball on that.

Promising news that NBA 2K and Madden are both launch titles for the WiiU. I am toying with the idea of getting the WiiU, and having some quality sports titles to play certainly helps my decision-making process.

so play video games with a mini TV. How do you play nba 2k13 with a friend one person use the new wiiu mini tv the other person use old wii controller.

the classic teams online news got me real hyped. I know it was discussed in the achievement list before, but now that it's official I'm really hyped. gonna go with 2002 kings. I hope the confirmation of which classic teams are gonna be in 2k13 becomes available soon!

I can see it now though, probably gonna be 97-98 bulls and jordan shooting 100% of the time. I'm up for the challenge though. Doug Christie is going to be crucial with his defensive stopper sig skill!

Love the info on that Biometric Scan.
 
# 13 xMoJox @ 09/15/12 12:35 PM
I am really pumped about FINALLY being able to use the classic teams online too! I just hope we can use the classic teams in team-up as that is what I mostly play!

3 seperate thoughts:

1. I hope the online classic teams can be matched against current teams instead of the DLC Legends way where you had to play classic vs classic.

2. I have a PS3 and a now broken wii. I have kids...thinking about trading the ps3 in for 150 credit....Not sure what I will lose by giving the PS3 back? Online play, graphics, controlls? Anybody have thoughts on pros and cons on going with Wii U vs PS3 as it relates to NBA 2k13?

3. Is there ALL STAR WEEKEND DLC for WiiU?

1. That could happen, it seems more logical that it will

2. Pro vs Cons, none cause even though I love all three companies, PS3 and Wii U will probably have the same thing with the Wii U getting exclusive things.

3. No, as a Pre Order thing, $10 or $20 DLC later on in the future, could happen, gives 2K extra money

I've played NBA 2k11 on Wii, the graphics are terrible but the modes are pretty much full featured. Madden 10-13 on Wii? Different story.

Anybody have recent specs and graphics comparisons for wii u and ps3? To remain relevant to the thread, I am thinking about NBA 2k13.....

This Gatorade Biometric Scan should also be also present in Xbox/PS3, right?
 
# 20 BRxSKINSx @ 09/15/12 11:35 PM
Wii U....? What's a Wii U....? I'm being serious too....Is it like how XBox went to 360....? Wii goes to Wii U....?
