Can’t get enough NBA 2K13? It just launched yesterday on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii, so you’d be forgiven if you’re horribly addicted at the present moment. Luckily for you, 2K Games launched an Android version of the game on the Google Play Store today, and while it may not be the quite the same as its big brother on consoles, its release means that you can have NBA 2K13 with you anywhere you go.
The mobile version of NBA 2K13 features special one-touch controls developed specifically for playing on a touch screen, but purists can rest assured that classic control mode is present as well. The game also features Multi Season Mode, which is pretty self-explanatory (hint: it lets you play through multiple seasons as you build your team), as well as commentary from Kevin Harlan and Clark Kellogg. You’ll also have the updated 2011-2012 roster at your disposal, along with a soundtrack put together by none other than Jay Z.
The graphics look pretty impressive for a mobile game, and this version seems to pack in quite a few features. As stated above, it isn’t going to be as full-featured as a console game, but 2K Games has done a pretty good job with the port nonetheless. There’s just one small issue: NBA 2K13 on Android costs $8, which is a lot for a mobile game.
Maybe we’re just nitpicking though – after all, the console version runs $60, so with that in mind, $8 definitely isn’t bad. Still, it’s a lot more than many consumers are used to paying for mobile games, so 2K may have a hard time getting the Android version of NBA 2K13 to take off. If you’d like to check it out, you can find it at the Google Play Store [download link] right this instant.
