NBA 2K21 Next-Gen Screenshot of Kobe Bryant - "Frobe"

Last week NBA 2KTV revealed a screenshot of Kobe Bryant in the next-gen version of NBA 2K21. This week the team revealed a younger version of the Black Mamba. It’s Frobe and he looks amazing!

As noted, last week, all of the different versions of Kobe have been updated for next-gen. It will be interesting to see how some of the other legend faces have improved. Guess we find out soon enough!

NBA 2K21 will release globally on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10. The game releases on November 12 for PlayStation 5, here in the United States, as well as Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. The rest of the PlayStation 5 world will see it on November 19.

    Amazing.
    Imagine if the other legends got this accurate as well ?? Wow......

    Man i hope so especially in regards to MJ and i also hope we can customize legends hairstyles/accessories such as change rodman hair color per month, etc. That would really be dope.

    That'll never happen. Way too much work to make that possible for something so minor. Only thing we can hope for are more notable legends getting this level of update (Kobe should've been a given since he's on the cover).

    That's razor. The community dude 2K hired. He's incredible at this.

    Yeah, he updated a few players since 2K hired him but you can definitely see the difference.
    Hope he will work on more retro CFs, because i cant imagine Next Gen with Bubble Heads players.

    MJ face wise has been pretty good skin tone and body shape needs improvemenr

    Not agree. There's something wrong, IMO the current result is average.
    BTW, teeth position is terrible when the mouth is open.
    ps : again, we can see that the new lighting has an impact on the jersey yellow color.
    Looks great.
    Very keen to see/feel how he (and everyone else) moves.
    Playing as Kobe (both this version and any other version) with his signature styles is gonna be so much fun.

    Yea but who knows what you can expect in regard to these next gen consoles. Im just looking forward to us having more freedom with customization in future iterations. And im sure we are since Razor is in charge of creating CF and he is the best man to do this.

    I just believe the level of detail is due to their respect for him after his passing. Almost anything basketball related, has something to do with him and the legacy he left behind. I applaud 2k for taking the time to perfect him in. The question is, did other legends get the same treatment?

    Games are drastically more complex than they were back then. Player models, textures. Etc. require way more work than they did back in the early 2000s hence why you haven't seen that since. It's not that it can't be done, but it's not something that they'll commit the already short development time to-to implement it right.

    Razor makes cf but he's not going to be coding to implement auto changing hairstyles or editable hairstyles for real players lol.

    Look, I give them credit for fixing him, but nothing in their past indicates most legends will get this treatment. It just makes the most sense that they'd fix Kobe because they're selling a $100 version of the game with his image on it and he was/is one of the worst looking legends in the game on current gen. Guys like Shaq, Larry Bird, James Worthy, etc. I'm keeping my expectations low on lol.

    For each 3D model, there's an appearance file in json.
    You can edit it and specify multiple hair styles.
    Thats why few players had already various hair styles with auto changing.
