NBA 2K24 unveils latest edition with Kobe Bryant tribute

Kobe Bryant, the 18-time All-Star, five-time NBA champion, two-time Finals MVP, two-time Olympic gold medalist, all-time leading scorer for the Los Angeles Lakers and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer, will be featured as the NBA 2K24 cover.

Game developer Visual Concepts also said the NBA 2kK24 Kobe Bryant Edition and Black Mamba Edition will be released worldwide on September 8 on all platforms and feature crossplay compatibility for PlayStation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series X|S.

“As we celebrate 25 years of NBA 2K with Kobe Bryant, we commemorate his legacy and the generational impact he has had on the game of basketball,” Greg Thomas, president at Visual Concepts said.

“While we mark the history of the franchise, NBA 2K24 also looks ahead to the future to bring an innovative leap in technology and the introduction of community-requested features like crossplay.”

To celebrate the return of Kobe on the NBA 2K cover, players will be able to channel their inner-Mamba mentality in the brand-new Mamba Moments mode.
