Basketball's Legends Take to the Streets in New NBA 2K12 DLC

More than 150 all-time NBA greats in a variety of new game modes set in New York City are coming to NBA 2K12, 2K Sports has announced today.

There is no release date yet, but the content will be available for download on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, costing you 800 MS Points and $9.99, respectively.

The content will feature a new, cell-shaded art style and will take place in New York City's Times Square.

Some of the big names mentioned by 2K Sports are the ones you might expect: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Dr. J.

You'll be able to play pick-up games, from 1-on-1 to 5-on-5, as well as games that stray from the usual basketball experience, such as H-O-R-S-E.

If you want to use that NBA My Player I know you've been working on making into the next Jordan, you can pit him against the legends as well!

2K also states that you can unlock current players to use with or against the legends in the mode, so you can mix and match your favorite past and present stars.

Keep your eyes peeled for the official release date of this downloadable content, it sounds pretty interesting!
