LeBron James knows when and how to make an appearance. On the eve of yesterday’s NBA Finals Game 1, the league MVP and 2KSports unveiled James as the cover athlete for NBA 2K14. The move makes the first time James’ face has ever appeared on any game, much less the top-selling and top-rated NBA franchise.
2K also seized the moment to announce the release date, October 1, as well as news that the game will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as well as on next-gen platforms Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.
Below, check out the game’s first trailer featuring Steve Kerr playing the role of a “NBA Investigator” with LeBron as his special guest in introducing the upcoming title as well as another vid with a special message from LBJ to 2K fans.
