On Wednesday, an extended trailer was released by 2K Games, meanwhile, 2K Game emphasis on MyCareer mode in the upcoming NBA 2K17, it will be officially released and made available for everyone on Sept.16.
To illustrate the newest features added to the popular single-player story mode, 2K Games used the Phoenix Suns as its model team throughout the minute and a half video. For those unfamiliar with the game, MyCareer mode allows the user to create a custom player and guide him through the NBA Draft, training camp and the rigors of the regular season.
The trailer begins as you greet Suns teammates and front office staff before being introduced to the Phoenix media for the first time. From there, you meet Justice Young, the team’s second-round pick who has been “passed over and second-guessed for most of his basketball career.”
That character is portrayed by actor Michael B. Jordan, who starred in last year’s critically-acclaimed film Creed. Young becomes your partner in crime and the tandem is affectionately dubbed “Orange Juice,” a la Golden State’s “Splash Brothers.”
The trailer continues with action sequences on the Talking Stick Resort Arena court as well as light-hearted moments away from the game with your barber named Ice, voiced by comedian Hannibal Buress. The video ends with you toasting to the Suns earning a playoff berth and “Orange Juice” looking up at a billboard that reads: “Suns new Dynamic Duo: ‘The City is Ours!’
2K17 launches quite soon–it’s out on September 20, though you can get your hands on it early by pre-ordering. There’s also a standalone app launching tomorrow, September 9, that lets you get ready for the full game’s MyCareer mode.
