It has been an eventful couple of months for NBA superstar Anthony Davis. Aside from being set up for a trade to the historic Los Angeles Lakers, teaming up with Lebron James on the court and off the court in the upcoming Space Jam 2, “The Brow “ is also gracing the cover of NBA 2K20, the latest installment in the popular basketball video game franchise.

It is not the first time Davis has been on the cover of the venerated basketball simulation franchise. Last time was in NBA 2K16 where he was accompanied with basketball superstars Steph Curry and James Harden.

As is expected for NBA 2K titles, this year's game will come with your Standard and Deluxe Edition retailing for $59.99 and $79.99 respectively. A Legend Edition retailing for $99.99 will also be released, with recently retired Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade as the cover, a first for the three-time NBA champion.

Along with the announcement from 2K was an 18 second release trailer that showed NBA stars such as Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant and Lebron James. A shot of the highly touted number one pick of the 2019 draft, Zion Williamson, was also seen briefly. What was notable in the snippet though was the inclusion of WNBA star A’ja Wilson of the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces. This marks the first time the WNBA is featured in a 2K game. Just as an additional note, EA sports rival title NBA Live Series included the WNBA for the first time in its 2017 iteration.

NBA 2K20, which is considered the ultimate basketball simulation franchise, will be launching on September 6 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It will also become available for the Google Stadia streaming service once Stadia launches later in November of this year. Deviating from their past practices, 2K confirmed that the September 6 release date applies for the Standard, Deluxe and Legend Edition. In other words, pre-ordering doesn’t hold the early release incentive it did in the past NBA 2Ks, which is a surprising move from the publisher.
