All aboard the hype train for NBA 2K13.  2K Sports' latest basketball simulation is just over three months from release, set to arrive on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 4th (and on the Wii U when it arrives at retail), and promises a bunch of changes that will certainly make it the most realistic one that the company's released. And to help push the hype further, 2K has chosen a trifecta of current NBA superstars to grace the cover, a step forward from the solo cover stars that graced it previously.  Surprisingly enough, currently crowned NBA champ LeBron James nor series favorite Kobe Bryant are amongst the three stars.


In just a matter of months, the new NBA season will kick in, and teams will challenge the recently championship crowned Miami Heat for superiority.  And in the video game world, the basketball war will heat up once more, with EA Sports’ returning NBA Live 13 going head-to-head against 2K Sports’ winning franchise, NBA 2K13.  We already did a news piece talking about the game in action, but now we’ve gone one step further, chatting with its producer, Erick Boenisch, about what to expect this time around.  Complete with game footage!
