NBA 2K19 Slam Dunks Digital-Only Release On Nintendo Switch

NBA 2K19 Art

2K has announced that NBA 2K19 will release on Nintendo Switch and that three-time NBA Champion and four-time NBA MVP LeBron James will star on the cover of the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition.

The cover features Akron’s favourite son alongside an artistic composition of words personally chosen by LeBron. Each phrase contains a special meaning to him and includes “Strive for Greatness,” “Driven” and “Equality.”

But, the only problem is that the game will receive a digital-only release on the portable home console – meaning that we won’t be able to appreciate it as much.

Those that choose to buy the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition (£84.99 / $89.99) on the Nintendo eShop can play the game four days early starting on September 7th, and will receive the following digital items:

100,000 Virtual Currency; 50,000 MyTEAM points; 20 MyTEAM League Packs (delivered one a week); Sapphire LeBron James MyTEAM Card; 10 MyTEAM Heat Check Packs (delivered one a week beginning at the start of the NBA season); 5 LeBron-themed murals for MyCOURT; LeBron MyCOURT design; and King’s Collection – Nike LeBron apparel & footwear (25 pairs).

NBA 2K19 will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America on September 11th.
