At this week's GameStop Expo, NBA 2K revealed a new mode coming exclusively to the last-gen (PS3 & 360) versions of the game, entitled 2K Heroes. This unique mode features eight different teams helmed by current and former NBA players including Clyde Drexler, Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, David Robinson, and James Worthy with the five-man rosters selected by each respective captain.
In 2K Heroes, users will be able to select their choice of team and play against any of the other squads. The team that has the most victories by the All-Star Weekend will 'win' the competition and 2K Sports will make a donation to the charity of that respective team's captain.
While many companies have either abandoned the last-gen consoles or are only putting out legacy editions (updated rosters), 2K Sports deserves credit for making these versions of NBA 2K15 unique entries in the series. According to vgchartz
, the last-gen versions of NBA 2K14 accounted for nearly 70% of that edition's sales, so continuing strong support for these consoles is a very wise economic decision.
