NBA 2K11 Cover is tongue out


2K Sports today revealed the official cover art for NBA(R) 2K11 featuring Michael Jordan as the face of this year’s iteration of the top rated and top selling basketball simulation franchise*. The art style, featuring a highly-stylized, three-panel, iconic image of Jordan, represents a departure from previous NBA 2K titles to reflect the significance of having the greatest player of all time grace the cover.

“We knew as soon as we signed Jordan that we needed to do something special for the cover,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “This could possibly be the most highly anticipated cover art in the history of sports games and we think the image we came up with delivers on every front. I think fans will be pleasantly surprised at how Jordan is actually used in game, as NBA 2K11 will pay homage to ‘His Airness’ in many ways, but the cover art represented our first chance to stop and honor him along the way.”

“It’s exciting to see it all come together,” said Michael Jordan, a recent Hall of Fame inductee. “I am looking forward to seeing the final product, but my kids might have to give me some lessons.”

Here is 2K Sports’ cover for NBA2K11. I personally think that they could have done better. I mean way way better than this one. Now here’s me crossing my fingers for a much improved game play, Elite 11 is a promising one and could give 2K a run for their money. Your thoughts?

    If I’m not mistaken, this is the first that Jordan has EVER appeared in a console NBA Basketball game.

    Wicked, about damn time too.

    I think Jordan was in NBA Live 2001, but can only be played in the “1-on-1 with Jordan” mode.

    You could be right but I would of liked to have seen him on the Bulls and eventually playing for the Wizards as the years went by… I guess a greatest of all time game will have to do :D
