Jordan Joins Johnson, Bird on NBA 2K12 Cover

2K Sports announced today that Michael Jordan is once again returning to the company’s NBA title this year with NBA 2K12.

The publisher had previously mentioned that Larry Bird and Magic Johnson would be featured on two separate covers and Jordan will now make it three.

The covers featuring Bird and Johnson will be available at launch in a limited quantity.

“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.”

The game is slated for release on October 4.

    I’m probably going to get the one with Larry Bird on the cover, I could care less about a Bull and a guy with AIDS
