NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--2K Sports is proud to announce their NBA® 2K12 App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch will be available on the App Store on October 4, 2011.
“The iOS platform has become one of the most embraced platforms for gaming, and we wanted to give fans the chance to play NBA 2K12 with a tap of their finger – anywhere and anytime,” said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. “We’re excited to bring the authentic NBA 2K basketball experience to the mobile games market and we know fans will be too.”
In NBA 2K12, gamers can take the court with precision controls, an incredibly smooth frame-rate, and graphics that set the bar for iOS sports simulation titles. Additionally, the re-imagined control scheme offers user-friendly, touch-based gestures for passing, shooting and blocking, allowing the broadcast-style presentation to shine.

Players can step into the shoes of His Airness, Michael Jordan, and re-play some the greatest moments in his career in the Jordan Challenge mode. Featuring Game Center leaderboards, NBA 2K12 enables players to expand their social gaming experience by comparing achievements with friends, climbing global leaderboards, and more.
