For lovers of sports games, there are always a few months of the year full of anticipation and excitement – and the upcoming September of NBA 2K23 is no exception.
If you are a fan of basketball-themed games, you will never miss the NBA 2K series, which is released on time every year. However, you may be tired of changing the soup year after year, and you may be tired of the evaluation that it is swooping in a straight line every year. However, you will still take out your wallet and buy it – you know, While the NBA 2K series has been a smash from time to time, it’s still the best basketball game on the market, bar none.
Of course, this is not to say that 2K is just going all the way. The NBA 2K series of games that I experience every year, although this series can’t be said to be progressing steadily, there are more or less changes every year – as for these changes, Good or bad, that may be a matter of opinion.
Therefore, today, Xiao Youna, and Yuna, I will show you what changes are worth discussing in NBA 2K23 based on the current public information. And, is it worth your pre-order?
First, I don’t want to talk to you today about the new motion system, the new badges, the new shooting bar, the new AI, and so on. These things are updated every year, and they are bound to get better; after all, Video games are an art form that relies heavily on technological development. As technology improves, things that get better will always get better.
So, aside from some new stuff, what else has changed in NBA 2K23? Xiao Youna Yuna thinks that the most worth talking about is the MyNBA mode that many people pay attention to.
Like last year’s Marvel Studios animated series what if, the NBA 2K23’s MyNBA mode will focus on some of the most famous what-ifs in the history of the NBA. What if Michael Jordan hadn’t retired twice in his prime? What if the Detroit Pistons had taken Carmelo Anthony with the No. 2 pick? What if Kevin Durant could return to the Golden State Warriors? What if… there are so many ifs.
And these ifs belonging to NBA history must have been debated by many veteran spectators for a long time. And in NBA 2K23, you can practice these ifs yourself – practice is the only criterion for testing and finishing. So, you can go back to the legendary 1980s and watch the Lakers’ Magic Johnson and the Boston Celtics’ Big Bird Larry Bird in the most primitive NBA Dance under the rules; you can also go back to the amazing 1990s to see how the basketball trapeze dominated the entire era and became a legend; you can even witness the vigorous growth of the new generation after the millennium and witness the big sharks with your own eyes The rise of Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James.
All of this will change with your choice.
At the same time, NBA 2K23 will also correspond to different eras, changing the style of jerseys, team venues, broadcasters, and game rules, to give you the most historical gaming experience.
This is also the most attractive place for Xiao Youna Yuna in NBA 2K23 this time – of course, NBA 2K23 MyTeam mode is also very attractive, but there is no more detailed information yet. We will talk about it next time.
In addition, NBA 2K23 has once again used Michael Jordan as the cover character after NBA 2K11, NBA 2K12, and NBA 2K16.
In addition to appearing on the covers of NBA 2K23, Michael Jordan Edition, and Champion Edition, the game will also return to the 10 Jordan Challenges that appeared in NBA 2K11; five new Jordan Challenges will also be added. How to choose the most suitable edition for you?
What is the Jordan Challenge?
The Jordan Challenge is derived from NBA 2K11. Players must complete the incredible actions that Michael Jordan once completed in a game that is enough to restore history and lead the team to win the championship.
The NBA’s game routines and rules in the 1990s-like faster-paced offense-defense transitions and higher-intensity physical confrontations. In this NBA 2K23, the number of Jordan Challenges has increased to 15, and in each Jordan Challenge, the 1980s and 1990s are restored to the greatest extent possible. And the venues and participants of each Jordan Challenge have been restored almost stubbornly – NBA 2K23 even invited the legendary coach Bamboo Mike Flat in the 1990s. Mike Fratello served as a basketball commentator and hired Ray Clay, the official broadcaster for the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s.
At the same time, NBA 2K23 has also come up with more interesting ideas for players’ immersive gaming experiences. For example, the Jordan Challenge supports the TV broadcast filters of the 1990s, and the broadcast and transition effects are more in line with the times. For another example, the 15 Jordan Challenge games feature interviews with well-known figures from the basketball industry, such as Marv Albert, The voice of basketball, who once played in the Chicago All-Star Game. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who was on the same stage, and Phil Jackson, known as Zen Master.
Undoubtedly, the Jordan Challenge of NBA 2K23 will be irresistible to every Michael Jordan fan.
So, if you are also a supporter of Forever 23, then NBA 2K23 is not to be missed.
