Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash along with his daughter Gianna and seven others on Jan. 26, will be featured on a new Mamba Forever Edition, a special $100 version that replaces the Legend Edition for current and next-generation consoles. The current generation console cover features an artist rendering of Bryant in his No. 8 jersey; the next-generation console edition shows him in his No. 24 jersey.
The Mamba Forever Edition will include 100,000 in VC (the NBA 2K’s in-game currency), 10 MyTeam tokens, 40 MyTeam packs (10 at launch, with 10 additional packs available each week for the next three weeks) and sapphire versions of Lillard and Williamson that can be used in the MyTeam mode. Willard will grace the cover of the Standard Edition on current gen and Williams will be the cover athlete on the Standard Edition for next-gen when those consoles release around the holidays in 2020.
