NBA 2K12 - Cover Features for Jordan, Bird and Magic Johnson July 18, 2011 15:03

For basketball fans and gamers, there's not long left to go before the release of NBA 2K12. 2K Sports have not released a great deal of information about the forth coming installment of the incredibly successful 2K franchise, but there has been talk about the cover of the game.

Last year, Michael Jordan was the cover star for the 2K NBA game, which sold over 5 million copies, and this year he will also be featured on the cover, but he will not be alone. There are going to be three separate covers for the front of NBA 2K12 featuring some of the best known names in basketball, NBA Hall of Famers Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Jordan.

There has also been recent news about the soundtrack for NBA 2K12. Duck Down Records and 2K Sports held a competition for song placement on the official NBA 2K12 game soundtrack, and after filtering through thousands of entries, they've narrowed the winners down to producer Alex Kresovich of Ithica, NY and rap group D.J.I.G of Glassboro, NJ. D.J.I.G's Now's My Time and Kresovich's The Return will appear on the official soundtrack.

The game is set to be released on October 4th 2011, so stay tuned for more news about this much anticipated game launch!
