Kobe Bryant to grace the cover of NBA 2K17


For anyone that is even remotely interested in Basketball, you most likely would have played the absolutely phenomenal series that is released by 2K on a yearly basis. The amount of realism they manage to pack in to that title makes FIFA and PES look like a bit of a joke. It’s a game that keeps on evolving, keeps on improving and keeps on delivering.

It’s not unlike Kobe Bryant himself. A player that has graced the NBA for the last 20 years establishing some of the most incredible partnerships the game has ever seen. The legend himself is retiring after this season, and at the age of 37 it’s hard to imagine he could have done more in his career.

2K have recognised this and decided to honour him with his own edition of NBA 2K17 when it releases later this year. According to Gameinformer the Kobe Bryant Legend Edition will come with a host of extra content making it a pretty special package.


Gameinformer have also detailed the extra content which will include:

  • Limited-edition Kobe poster (physical item)
  • Two Kobe Panini playing cards (physical item)
  • Black Mamba game controller skin (physical item)
  • 30,000 Virtual Currency 
  • MyTEAM Bundle + (includes 3 packs with guaranteed Kobe limited use card)
  • Nike Kobe 11 retirement shoes (digital content)
  • Kobe #8 Mitchell and Ness jersey (digital content)
  • Kobe hoodie (digital content)
  • And, more!

Some great additional content there if you love the game and want to get the Kobe experience included, and to finish things off, below is a trailer with a focus on the man of the moment, Kobe Bryant.
