Earlier today, 2K revealed that 14-time NBA All-Star, five-time Kia NBA Most Valuable Player, six-time NBA World Champion, and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Michael Jordan will be featured on both the NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition and the premium NBA 2K23 Championship Edition. The trailer is included above with a few details on the upcoming basketball simulation game.
Along with Michael Jordan returning to grace the covers of NBA 2K23 this year, the game will also reintroduce The Jordan Challenge, which encourages players to recreate 15 iconic moments from Jordan’s illustrious career. All ten of the original Challenges from NBA 2K11 have been completely rebuilt from the ground up and will make their return this year – alongside five new iconic Jordan moments – for an entirely new generation of players to experience. These Challenges take advantage of more than a decade of technological leaps to provide a completely new way to play through Jordan’s accomplishments – all housed within its own game mode.
The Jordan Challenge also elevates an array of spellbinding performances across Jordan’s college, NBA, and Team USA Basketball careers that players can experience across all 15 Challenges and includes unique video vignettes that come with special commentary from an array of NBA luminaries: Jordan’s teammates, opponents, and other sports personalities, who saw him do it live and can bring to life his legacy to a younger generation of NBA fans. More details on The Jordan Challenge in NBA 2K23 will be released later this summer.
While we have a September 9th release date confirmed for NBA 2K23, 2K plans to reveal more cover athletes and pricing details later this week.
