2K Games has announced the release date for NBA 2K18 and who’ll be the cover star for the Legend Edition of the game.

Coming September 15, NBA 2K18 will be this year’s instalment in 2K’s NBA sports franchise. When that time comes, players will have several editions to choose from including the Legend Edition that’ll feature none other than Shaquille O’Neal on the cover!

The Legend Edition will come with special Shaq-themed memorabilia and content from a limited-edition poster to Panini stickers. Digital content will also include 100,000 Virtual Currency, 20 Weekly MyTEAM Packs, and even more Shaq content. There’s also a digital-only Legend Edition Gold that’ll come with even more currency, MyTEAM packs, and more.

“I want to thank NBA 2K for their continuous support of my basketball and broadcast career,” said O’Neal, whose Hall of Fame enshrinement late last year celebrates a storied 19-year career. “I’m excited to be on the cover of the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition and I hope my fans have a blast playing it up big man style and re-creating my most legendary in-game moments!”
