2K Sports has announced Visual Concepts’ NBA 2K13 will release in October.

The game will be made available for PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, Wii, and PC. The Wii U version will be released as a launch title.

Those who pre-order the game for 360 or PS3 will be the recipient of DLC featuring the NBA All-Star content package presented by Sprite. This add-on content will be set in Houston, the site of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game and will allow players to stage their own NBA All-Star Game, including three NBA All-Star events – the Foot Locker Three Point Shootout, BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest featuring all-new intuitive, pick-up-and-play controls.

Rosters for both the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge and 2013 NBA All-Star Game will feature the 2012 All-Stars, with dynamic updates to the 2013 rosters once the participants are announced.

NBA 2K13 will be available on October 2 in North America and October 5 internationally.
