Kobe Bryant announced as NBA 2K24 cover star

While it’s now official, it only felt natural. The late, great 18-time All-Star, five-time NBA World Champion, two-time Finals MVP, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant will grace the cover of the upcoming NBA 2K24.

Kobe will feature on two versions of the game, including the special NBA 2K24 Kobe Bryant Edition and Black Mamba Edition.

While Black Mamba Edition will serve as the version with all the extra VC and DLC goodies, it’s admittedly heartwarming to see Kobe feature on this year’s cover, given here wore the number 24 for half his career. That being said, we also love the trending theme of player-relevant choices, with Michael Jordan featuring on the special edition covers for NBA 2K23.

Stay tuned for more NBA 2K24 news as it breaks.
