How 2K21 is honoring Kobe Bryant.

Kobe Bryant will be memorialized on the game’s cover in an edition dedicated to him. Bryant was on the cover of NBA 2K10, but this time, it’s different.

Kobe Bryant will be memorialized on the popular game’s cover in a special edition dedicated to him. Bryant was on the cover of NBA 2K10 and the “legend edition” of 2K17. This time is different. Bryant died in a helicopter crash this past January, and the star’s impact on the game and its players were felt more strongly than ever before.

Kobe’s version is titled the “Mamba Version” and comes with the following items:
• 100,000 Virtual Currency, 10,000 MyTEAM Points, and 10 My TEAM Tokens.
• 60 MyCAREER Skill Boosts.
• 40 MyTEAM Promo Packs (10 at launch, then 3 per week).
• Sapphire Damian Lillard and Zion Williamson MyTEAM cards.
• MyPLAYER Shoe Collection and Backpack.
• Kobe Bryant Digital Collection


Bryant is already a legend, winning five NBA Finals, two NBA Finals MVP, a league MVP and enough accolades and honors to fill a museum with. To be honored yet again on another cover of 2K is a fitting tribute and honor to him as 2K is becoming an important part of basketball
culture.

“Each of our cover athletes represents different eras of the game of basketball “– Damian Lillard.

“Zion Williamson is a standard-bearer for the next generation of NBA
superstar and what more could be said about Kobe?” says Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global
Marketing at NBA 2K. “Three athletes are representing the current, future, and storied history of the game.”

You can already pre-order the game for PS5, and it is now available on the Nintendo Switch
