2K Games and Visual Concepts has finally revealed what Devin Booker will look like as the cover star of NBA 2K23.
The developers already confirmed that Devin Booker will headline the Standard and Digital Editions of NBA 2K23 after its initial reveal of the Michael Jordan Edition and Championship Edition on Tuesday. However, this will be our first look at the Standard and Digital Editions of NBA 2K23, and it's definitely well deserved. But, as this is a franchise that attracts millions of fans around the globe, there will be critics. For example, there's a huge chunk of gamers that feel like this year's MVP, Nikola Jokic, or the finalist, Joel Embiid, all deserved to have their first-ever box appearance.
On top of appearing on the Standard Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition of NBA 2K23, the Phoenix Suns superstar shooting guard will also front a sixth edition of the sports sim later this year. 2K describes this special version as their way of recognizing "the cross-section of music and basketball culture." The sixth NBA 2K23 edition will come out later this year.
If you're curious, here's what spending $150 on the Champions Edition of NBA 2K23 will get you:
- 12-Month NBA League Pass subscription
- Michael Jordan Themed Go-Kart
- 10% XP Boost on MyTeam and MyCAREER Season Progression

Also, in case it isn't clear already, NBA 2K23 will come out on both last-gen and current-gen consoles as well as the Nintendo Switch and the PC. NBA 2K23 will hit store shelves on September 9.
Take-Two Interactive has a massive slate of games scheduled to come out between now and 2025, which includes NBA 2K23. Unfortunately, while most expected Rockstar Games to have a couple of remasters there, this is not happening. Rockstar just confirmed that it is all in on GTA 6, which will reportedly be the studio's first game to use RAGE 9.
