NBA 2K12 is heading to your iOS device
On October 4, NBA 2K12 will be available on the iTunes store for all second generation iOS devices including the iPhone, iPad and iTouch. This will mark the first time the top selling basketball simulation will be available for Apple devices. 2K Sports promises to have all 30 teams to be available with full rosters. The control scheme will be user friendly, touched based gestures for shooting, passing, and blocking. 2k Sports is bringing back the Jordan Challenge from 2k11 and allowing players to re-play some of His Airness’ greatest moments.
“The iOS platform has quickly become one of the most popular destinations for gaming, and we wanted to give fans the chance to play NBA 2K12 with a touch of their finger – anywhere and anytime,” said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. “We’re excited to bring the authentic NBA 2K basketball experience to the mobile games market and we hope fans will be too.”
For NBA sports fans this is an exciting announcement. The NBA 2K series has been focused on accurately replicating the game of basketball and they have done so with great success. With the critically acclaimed success with NBA 2K11 and the anticipation of NBA 2K12 for the consoles, let’s hope that the mobile iOS version stands up to the console counterparts.
