GENRE(S): Sports Sim

RELEASE DATE(S): 2 October 2012


That's right NBA 2K13 and Justin Bieber fans, your wish has come true. Justin Bieber has been confirmed as a playable character in the game. While I'm not entirely sure over the crossover of fans of the game and fans of the Biebs, executive producer on NBA 2K13 has found it in his wisdom to include the singer as a playable character.

Interestingly though, it appears that no Justin Bieber tracks will be making an appearance on the game's soundtrack. A real shame there, his brand of tween friendly sugar pop would fit perfectly with the atmosphere of the NBA. Or maybe not.

While NBA Jam is notorious for including celebrities on the roster of playable characters the inclusion of someone like Justin Bieber in the simulation style of NBA 2K13 seems a strange decision. We'll just have to wait and see how when the game is released.

NBA 2K13 is available now for PC, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360 and will be available at launch for Wii U.
