The void between console gaming and Tegra devices continues to close. 2K Sports has launched NBA 2K Everywhere, giving basketball fans the opportunity to experience NBA 2K virtually anywhere via an all-new mobile companion application, a social game on Facebook, and a full-featured mobile version of NBA 2K13 for Android devices. NBA 2K Everywhere will extend the NBA 2K experience by offering players greater flexibility, more variety and new ways to play, at home or on the go, with these all-new social and mobile games. Additionally, both the mobile companion app and Facebook game enable players to feed data and experience right back into NBA 2K13 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, introducing a new level of connectivity and continuity to the NBA 2K experience.
The free companion app, MyNBA2K will allow players to experience a series of entertaining mini-games including shooting practice, free throw drills, a dribbling course, and autograph signing. With intuitive multi-touch controls and a variety of pick-up-and-play training games, MyNBA2K will offer an easy way for players to stay connected to their MyCAREER and MyTEAM experience in NBA 2K13 while away from home.
NBA 2K: MyLIFE, 2K Sports’ first ever social game on Facebook will let players import their MyCAREER avatars from NBA 2K13 to compete in skills competitions with friends, build their home-court environment, and play through experiences of an NBA superstar including earning endorsements and fostering relationships with fellow NBA stars. Accomplishments in NBA 2K: MyLIFE can help unlock clothing, dunk packages, and other rewards in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system versions of NBA 2K13.
For the second consecutive year, fans can also purchase an authentic, full-featured NBA simulation experience for their Android devices developed by 2K China. The new mobile game features intuitive multi-touch controls and improved graphics. Fans can also relive some of the NBA’s most memorable games with the NBA’s Greatest Mode.
“Our console game will always be the heart of the NBA 2K franchise, but we want to go beyond that,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “Through NBA 2K Everywhere, fans can extend their NBA 2K experience wherever they go, whether it’s on the road with the mobile apps or socially with friends via Facebook. We’re offering more ways to experience NBA 2Kthan ever before.”
