2K Sports has announced that NBA 2K13, the next installment of their NBA video game simulation franchise, will be available on Tuesday, October 2, 2012, in North America and October 5, 2012, internationally, for PC, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360 and Wii - a Wii U version of the game will be released in the launch window, at a later date. In NBA 2K13, developed by Visual Concepts, gamers can pit the NBA’s current superstars against classic players in both the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout and Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Rosters for both the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge and 2013 NBA All-Star Game will feature the 2012 All-Stars, with dynamic updates to the 2013 rosters once the participants are announced.
Those who pre-order NBA 2K13 for Xbox 360 or PS3 will receive a new downloadable NBA All-Star content package presented by Sprite. This add-on content will be set in Houston, the site of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game and will allow fans to stage their own NBA All-Star Game, including three NBA All-Star events - the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout, BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest featuring all-new intuitive, pick-up-and-play controls.
