2K /

2K shared the full SKU details for NBA 2K24, revealing the different editions of this year’s game along with a general overview of new gameplay features and details. NBA legend Kobe Bryant will be the cover athlete for this year’s game, appearing on both the Kobe Bryant Edition ($59.99/$69.99) and Black Mamba Edition ($99.99).

Bryant’s return to the cover of the NBA 2K series will be accompanied with a special mode that highlights some of his most memorable moments on the court. As noted in the press release:

"In honor of Kobe returning to the NBA 2K cover, players can celebrate his legacy and channel their inner-Mamba mentality in the brand-new Mamba Moments mode."

Similar to the Jordan Challenges in NBA 2K23, Mamba Moments will put players into the shoes of one of the greatest NBA superstars of all-time. Players will have the chance to recreate some of Kobe’s most captivating performances and experience some of his most memorable moments of his journey from a young phenom to one of the greatest players of all time. From his 81-point game to his four straight games scoring at least 50 points, there’s no shortage of memorable moments from Kobe’s illustrious 20-year career in the NBA.

In addition to Mamba Moments, another big feature in this year’s game is the introduction of ProPlay. Available only the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game, this new technology “directly translates NBA footage into gameplay and delivers animations and movements via on-court NBA action.” Another features exclusive to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S is crossplay support.

We’ll get more information on both ProPLAY and Mamba Moments later this year. NBA 2K23 takes the court on September 8, 2023. It will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Which moments of Kobe Bryant’s career do you want to see featured in the game?
