LeBron James Gets NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition Cover


Quote:
LeBron James' Words Speak Volumes on NBA 2K19's 20th Anniversary Edition

2K today announced that NBA 2K will feature three-time NBA Champion, four-time NBA MVP and avid NBA 2K gamer LeBron James on the cover of the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition. The iconic cover features Akron’s favorite son alongside an artistic composition of words personally chosen by LeBron. Each phrase contains special meaning to James, including “Strive for Greatness,” “Driven,” and “Equality.”

“It’s humbling to be on the 20th anniversary cover of a game I’ve played and loved since I was a little kid,” said James. “We were able to do something really unique for the cover that represents everything that drives me and inspires me – from my family to where I come from and words I live by. I’m honored my journey can be part of this special time in 2K history and I’m excited for fans to see it.”

In addition to the exclusive James themed content and items, fans who purchase the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition will receive the game four days early, beginning on September 7.

“This year marks the 30th anniversary for the development team at Visual Concepts and the 20th for the NBA 2K series, so it was important to commemorate this milestone by partnering with the most iconic athlete of this generation in LeBron James,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “LeBron’s carefully crafted wording on the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition cover encapsulates the passion and drive that have elevated him to all-time greatness making him the perfect cover star.”

The NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition includes the following digital items:

• 100,000 Virtual Currency;
• 50,000 MyTEAM points;
• 20 MyTEAM League Packs (delivered one a week)
• Sapphire LeBron James MyTEAM Card;
• 10 MyTEAM Heat Check Packs (delivered one a week beginning at the start of the NBA season)
• 5 LeBron-themed murals for MyCOURT;
• LeBron MyCOURT design;
• King's Collection - Nike LeBron apparel & footwear (25 pairs!)

Physical Items include:

• LeBron NBA 2K19 poster;
• NBA 2K sticker sheet;
• Custom Wristband featuring LeBron’s chosen words.

The NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition marks the second cover appearance for the 14-time NBA All-Star. James, currently playing in his 15th NBA season, is also the co-founder of production company SpringHill Entertainment and digital sports media platform UNINTERRUPTED.

Developed by Visual Concepts, the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition will be available September 7, 2018 in both digital and physical formats for a SRP of £84.99 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and digitally on Nintendo Switch and Windows PC.

The NBA 2K19 Standard Edition will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system and Windows PC platforms in both digital and physical formats and digitally for Nintendo Switch on September 11, 2018.

Ummm, what? "NBA 2K" debuted on the Dreamcast, which was released in 1999. This may be the 20th game in the series, but it's only the 19th anniversary. What are they going to celebrate next year?

Much like car models, sports games are always a year ahead in terms of numbering. Next year's game will be 2K20, so they're celebrating the 20th year for this release.

Considering the fact that this was one of the most successful seasons the NBA has seen since it's inception, I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon.

That... doesn't make sense. We're talking about 2K19 here. It hasn't been 20 years since the first release (1999 - 2018), it's not the 2K20 SKU - these marketing people are just inventing an anniversary!

Edit: Oh! You mean they're celebrating the 20th game in the series! Well, yes, obviously, but they (and you) worded it differently. The 20th issue of anything is only the 19th anniversary.

You're kind of arguing semantics; they're celebrating the 20th anniversary of the series with the game that would be bearing the year of the 20th anniversary.

It ain't a big deal.
