Nba 2k13 by 2k sports

2K has announced that they will release 2 apps for their new Game 2K13 which both will be released in October.

One of them apps will be called MyNBA2K which will be free.

MyNBA2K, will bring an assortment of basketball challenges to mobile devices including shooting practice, free throw drills, a dribbling course, and autograph signing. It will also offer a way for players to stay connected to their MyCAREER and MyTEAM experience in NBA 2K13 when not at the console
Another app will be the actual full mobile versions of 2k13 which will include multiplayer via bluetooth and gamecenter.

Once again releasing in October, the mobile version of NBA 2K13 will offer an authentic NBA experience with intuitive multi-touch controls, improved graphics and, for the first time, a new multiplayer mode via Bluetooth and Game Center (iOS version only). An NBA's Greatest Mode will also let fans relive the most memorable NBA games
Stay tuned for more

Preview for Both Apps from Mercurynews.com :

THE SIM GAME ON MOBILE:The NBA 2K13 title for iOS and Android devices is the most obvious way to do that. Players can control teams with a virtual D-pad and buttons. But 2K Sports is also introducing one-touch controls for the more casual fans. All gamers have to do is tap on an offensive player to steal. Swipe up to block and rebound. Tap on a player to pass. They never control actual player movements; instead, the team moves on its own, controlled by the AI, which is also improved.

It’s a simplified control scheme that opens up the game to more people. One thing I especially liked is how you can call plays just by holding down on an icon in the bottom right corner. On offense, it brings up three options like a screen, iso or a drive to the basket. Pick one and the AI player with the ball executes the command. All gamers have to do is decide when to rise and fire.

Aside from these gameplay improvements, 2K Sports and 2K China added synchronous multiplayer. Now fans can connect via Bluetooth locally or GameCenter to compete against others around the globe. The other upgrade is in the Association mode and the addition of NBA’s Greatest Moments Mode. First off, Association is improved, letting players make trades and continue playing through an indefinite number of seasons. Second, the Greatest Moments Mode lets gamers replay epic games like Kobe’s 81 point explosion against the Raptors. The game will have a set number of these moments available with additional packs selling for 99 cents later on. The mobile game will satisfy some fans when it comes out this fall for $7.99.

But the big draw for hard-core fans is MyNBA2K. The companion app is tightly woven into the fabric of NBA 2K13. The free app includes 10 minigames designed by the team at Visual Concepts. They’re simple diversions that take less than five minutes to complete.

It includes things like an Autograph Signing game, where players have to push out dozens of their signature within a time limit. Another minigame is Team Defense where they set up their defenders and watch as they try to protect the basket. It works a lot like the old electric football sets but you can slightly control the players using devices’ tilt function. But the most interesting minigame is one that imports your custom team from the console title and lets you use it in a Stratego like game. Not only is it fun but it helps you learn members of your custom team better.

These are fun distractions, but the payoff comes after completing the minigames. Players are offered VC or a boosts for their created player. The VC can be used in NBA 2K13 to upgrade their created player. The stat boosts offer temporary power-ups like improved team chemistry or better shooting. It’s great if your created player is heading into a playoff game and needs a big performance.

But there is a cap to what you can do with MyNBA2K. Players can import 1,000 VC a day. So no, you can’t grind out an uber character using this game.

This looks awsome. Can't wait, hopefully the controls will be good, it's good to see that the players look like the players.
