Adam Larson worked with the team at 2K Sports to create the covers for the new NBA 2K12 video game. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson are splitting duties as cover athletes, offering PS3 and Xbox 360 owners the option to choose from three unique covers. The Bird and Johnson covers will be available in only limited quantities.
“Bringing Michael Jordan to the virtual hardwood last year was a huge success for NBA 2K11; however, we didn’t want to stop there,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “We’re bringing ‘His Airness’ back to the NBA 2K franchise as part of a multi-year extended partnership, along with two other legendary icons – Larry Bird and Magic Johnson – for a special cover athlete collection representing the NBA’s greatest heroes.”
Adam Larson has produced art featured in magazines, galleries, and advertising campaigns. He’s racked up Kelly Awards, Cannes Lions, and Clio Awards for his work.
NBA 2K12 is available for pre-order at retailers throughout the nation. It will be released on October 4th for PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, Wii, and PC.
