Don’t Just Play as Mike, Become Him in NBA® 2K11

2K Sports today revealed The Jordan Challenge, a new game mode for the latest iteration of the top rated and top selling basketball simulation franchise*, NBA® 2K11. This new mode will allow players to relive 10 different legendary games from Michael Jordan’s illustrious career and challenge them to replicate what he did on the court in NBA 2K11.

“Fans of the series are going to be thrilled to know that in NBA 2K11 Michael Jordan is much, much more than just a cover athlete,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We’re excited to start talking about the ways that Michael will be used in the game and there’s still a lot more to come.”

While playing The Jordan Challenge, fans can try to stun the world in Jordan’s self-described greatest game by torching the Cavaliers by 69 points in March of 1990; attempt to battle back from the flu to defeat the Jazz in Game 6 of the 1997 finals; or leave the world wanting more as they relive one of Jordan’s finest performances during his last game as a Chicago Bull on June 14, 1998. In addition to The Jordan Challenge mode, gamers will have the unique opportunity to play as some of the greatest teams in NBA history, including the ‘85-’86, ’89-’90, ’90-’91, ’94-’95, ’95-’96, ’96-’97, and ’97-’98 Chicago Bulls.

NBA 2K11 is not yet rated by the ESRB and will be available October 5, 2010. For more information, please visit www.2ksports.com/nba2k11.

I honestly was going to nit pick if he didn't have the gum chewing jaw-swagger in the game. Glad to see that's included!!

Aw man i saw that trailer and that got me really super hype even tho it was like 20 seconds or so.

Oh don't worry. The nit pickers will be out soon enough.

"Oh no! Not the right accessories."

Yeah...Jordan wore that knee sleeve on his shin later in his career and not his knee. Plus, make that wrist band on his elbow look more like a wrist band and not a Randy "Macho Man" Savage elbow band. And make sure you give him white socks since the Bulls didn't wear black socks until the playoffs in '96-'98.

Just kidding. Well...kinda just kidding. Get it right 2K!

There are a couple golden posts on the 2K board with a dude saying "Who cares about the game mode, all I want to know is do they have all of the Air Jordans in the game?"

Ah 2K, now you've gone and got me all excited before I've even seen gameplay footage.

Awesome dunk.

The first J's I ever stood in line for, I feel like 1997 all over again. Day one pick up for me.

Very nice video clip. Now I know I got to reserve this now.

This is going to be a beautiful year for sports. I'm ready to play this game right now.

Cool, I can relive the Bulls/Cavs game and purposely make him miss the last shot to send Cleveland to the Finals LOL!

I think this new mode is a great idea for the legend MJ. I liked the photos of him, as they looked dead on, but something about seeing him in motion threw me off. I liked the gum chewing, though.

Matt is going to have a field day with this one..... Day one purchase for me
# 18 ybtherockstar @ 07/22/10 09:57 AM
Those playoff jordan 12's look beautiful. Can't wait.
# 19 spankdatazz22 @ 07/22/10 10:06 AM
Slightly disappointed that the models are still a tad too broad shouldered and muscular (Lebron pic also), but it's a small complaint. Looks great; wondering if they have the tongue. Looking forward to seeing what they do from a marketing perspective

Ok, now this brought a smirk to my face. Looking good....looking good.
