NBA 2K20 Announced, Anthony Davis and Dwyane Wade Serve as Cover Athletes
This year's edition of NBA 2K20 will launch on September 6.
The coincide with the NBA free agency season kicking off, 2K Games and Visual Concepts today announced this year’s edition of its annual basketball sim, NBA 2K20.
NBA 2K20 will once again launch in September this year with its specific release date being that of September 6. Per usual, NBA 2K20 will be released in multiple different editions that will net you different goodies depending on how much money you’re looking to drop. The Standard Edition will set you back $59.99, the Digital Deluxe Edition will cost $79.99, and the Legend Edition will retail for $99.99. You can see what extras will come with each version by clicking here.
As for the cover athletes this year, Anthony Davis, the new Los Angeles Lakers star, will don the game’s standard edition box art. This is the second time that Davis has appeared on the cover of an NBA 2K game after previously sharing the cover art with James Harden and Steph Curry for NBA 2K16. “Being picked as the face of NBA 2K20 means the world to me, and I’m excited for the fans to experience the best sports simulation in the world this Fall,” Davis said in a statement.
This year’s Legend Edition cover art belongs to that of Dwyane Wade, who just recently retired this past season. This marks the first time that Wade has ever appeared on the cover of an NBA 2K game, which is kind of crazy. The box art featuring Wade sees him wearing the black and pink Vice jerseys that the Miami Heat don on occasion.
We still don’t know much about the major changes that will be hitting NBA 2K20 this year, but we’ll likely start to learn a whole lot more in the coming weeks. Until then, you can check out the first teaser trailer for the game down below.
