On the evening that the icon will play in his final NBA game, 2K Games have paid tribute to Kobe Bryant with their NBA 2K17 Legend Edition. Bryant is the cover star for the special edition of this year’s NBA title, and a new trailer pays tribute to all of the Kobe players and haters from over the years.
The NBA 2K17 Legend Edition will highlight Bryant’s career with special Kobe-themed memorabilia and digital content, extending his legacy for fans beyond his final NBA game for the L.A Lakers tonight. Bryant has even talked about his delight at partnering with the NBA 2K series yet again:
It’s a great honour to partner with 2K on the NBA 2K17 Legend Edition; as I walk off the NBA court for the final time, it’s exciting to know my fans can continue to celebrate my lifelong career as a Los Angeles Laker.
Fans who opt to honour Kobe’s career by picking up the Legend Edition will receive special memorabilia and in-game digital content, including:
· Limited-edition Kobe poster;
· Two Kobe Panini playing cards;
· Black Mamba game controller skin.
· 30,000 Virtual Currency;
