2K Sports has announced The Jordan Challenge for NBA 2K11.

It’s a new game mode for the title, which will allow players to relive 10 different legendary games from Michael Jordan’s career and challenge them to replicate what he did on the court.

“Fans of the series are going to be thrilled to know that in NBA 2K11 Michael Jordan is much, much more than just a cover athlete,” said Jason Argent, VP of marketing for 2K Sports. “We’re excited to start talking about the ways that Michael will be used in the game and there’s still a lot more to come.”

Here’s the description of the Jordan Challenge:

Players can try to pull off the famous players moves from self-described greatest game by torching the Cavaliers by 69 points in March of 1990; attempt to battle back from the flu to lay waste to the Jazz in Game 6 of the 1997 finals; or leave the world wanting more as they relive one of Jordan’s finest performances during his last game as a Chicago Bull on June 14, 1998.

That doesn’t sound very easy, at least not to us.

In addition to The Jordan Challenge mode, gamers will have the opportunity to play as teams from the Chicago Bulls’ NBA history, including the years ‘85-’86, ’89-’90, ’90-’91, ’94-’95, ’95-’96, ’96-’97, and ’97-’98.

NBA 2K11 is slated for release on October 5 and 8 in the US and UK, respectively,for PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.
