Ben Simmons will join an illustrious list of cover stars when he adorns the Australian & New Zealand editions of NBA 2K19 upon release on September 11.
The ground-breaking cover features Australia’s latest global sporting superstar alongside a selection of words chosen by Simmons. Each term found on the cover contains special meaning to Ben, including “Loyalty,” “Family,” and his signature “Triple Double.”
“It’s a huge honour to be recognized on the first-ever Australian cover for NBA 2K and represent the 76ers,” said Simmons.
“The Aussie fans are super passionate about basketball and specifically NBA 2K, so it’s very cool to be an ambassador for both” Simmons continued.
During his debut season in the NBA Simmons set a host of records. He joined Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson as only the third rookie in NBA history to reach 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists and he was second only to Robertson for most triple-doubles in a rookie season.
The NBA 2K19 Standard Edition will be available across Australia and New Zealand for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC platforms in both digital and physical formats on September 11, 2018. Featuring a double-sided inlay in Australia & New Zealand which will display the Ben Simmons cover and the Giannis Antetokounmpo cover on either side.
