Every wanted to be able to play NBA 2K anywhere you want while on the go ? Well now you can with 2K’s new addition of NBA 2K Anywhere.
In a press release this morning, 2K games and 2K Sports have announced the upcoming app for Facebook, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices everywhere. NBA 2K Anywhere will be the first time that players can take their NBA 2K experience on the road.
With NBA 2K Anywhere, players will have an all-new way of experiencing NBA 2K on the go with a mobile companion app, a Facebook app, and a full fledged mobile version of NBA 2K 13 for your iPhones, iPads and Android devices.
2K Sports looks to expand the fan experience, wherever you may be.
“Our console game will always be the heart of the NBA 2K franchise, but we want to go beyond that,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “Through NBA 2K Everywhere, fans can extend their NBA 2K experience wherever they go, whether it’s on the road with the mobile apps or socially with friends via Facebook. We’re offering more ways to experience NBA 2K than ever before.”
With the free companion app, MyNBA2K, that can be downloaded on the iTunes app store or Android app store for free in October, you will have the power to keep track of your MyPlayer or MyTeam while on the go. The app will also feature several mini-games that will keep you connected with the community of fellow NBA 2K players. Mini-games include a shooting practice, free throw drills, a dribbling course, and autograph signing.
With ‘NBA 2K: MyLife’, the first social app for NBA 2K on Facebook, players can import their MyCareer avatars from NBA2K13 to compete in skills competitions with friends, build their home-court environment and play through experiences of an NBA superstar, including earning endorsements and fostering relationships with fellow NBA stars. Accomplishments in NBA 2K: MyLIFE can help unlock clothing, dunk packages, and other rewards in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system versions of NBA 2K13.
For the second year in a row, 2K is also offering the fully downloadable version of NBA 2K13 on your mobile device. With NBA 2K13 on your phone you will now be able to link of with a friend over Bluetooth or the iTunes Game Center to play with friends over your mobile devices.
