NBA 2K12 hit stores earlier this month and, for any real-world NBA woes, it's a pretty spectacular effort from Visual Concepts. The new NBA's Greatest mode is an easy highlight, offering gamers the opportunity to step into the shoes of some of the sport's greatest players. A newly announced Legends Showcase DLC pack will add quite a bit to the mode, starting with a new location.
The star of Legends Showcase is the new court to play on, in New York City's Times Square. Like the courts in the NBA's Greatest, this new one will sport its own unique visual feel. It's definitely the most unusual, and most striking, look yet with its cel-shaded textures (pictured above).
The add-on will allow gamers to "select from more than 150 of the NBA's all-time greatest players," though that number seems surprisingly high considering that the game shipped this month with only 19 Legends on the disc. The new court will support everything from 1-on-1 to 5-on-5 pickup games, as well as minigames like 21, H-O-R-S-E, 2-on-2 Teammater Challenge and 3-on-3 Era Challenge.
You'll also be able to bring your created My Player into the mix and bring unlocked NBA's Greatest teams into your online competitions in Classic Quick Match. The pack is coming "this holiday season" to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace, for $9.99 and 800 MS Points, respectively.
