*UPDATED* NBA 2K21 Cover Athlete COUNTDOWN: Kobe Bryant revealed – two covers for Lakers legend
The front men of 2K’s next basketball game will be revealed this week, but who will it be?
All eyes are on NBA 2K21 as we continue to receive huge announcements, including cover athletes.
The third and final NBA 2K21 cover star has been revealed as nonother than Kobe Bryant.
Latest News – Kobe Bryant Mamba Forever Edition
The final cover star is someone everyone had predicted – Kobe Bryant.
The Los Angeles Lakers icon lost him life in January 2020, and 2K has given him a fitting tribute.
The left cover will be for the Mamba Forever Edition on current-generation platforms, while the one on the right will be on next-gen consoles.
2K has also confirmed the release date for NBA 2K21 – 4 September. You can pre-order the game now!
NBA 2K21 Prices announced
The price for NBA 2K21 has also been confirmed.
The Standard Edition, fronted by Damian Lillard, will cost £59.99.
The Mamba Forever Edition will set you back £84.99.
When the next-gen consoles arrive the Standard Edition price will rise to £64.99.
Dual Access for Mamba Forever Edition
If you buy the Mamba Forever Edition you get access to the Standard Edition on the corresponding next-gen console.
It’s yet to be seen if Smart Delivery or backwards compatibility will mean the Standard Edition on PS4 or Xbox One will be playable on next-gen.
Given the lack of confirmation and focus on Dual Access for Mamba Forever Edition players though, we doubt it.
