Today, 2K Sports sent out a press release announcing that NBA 2K12 will get an additional 45 new legends added to the upcoming downloadable content pack “Legends Showcase.” This brings the total amount of legends found in the DLC up to over 200.

It wasn’t long ago that we detailed the “Legends Showcase” add-on pack, which introduces a new mode set in the concrete jungle of Times Square, New York, allowing you to play a number of cool pick-up games like “H-O-R-S-E” and “21.” In addition, the downloadable content also brings with it a slick new graphical style (shown below in the trailer).


We already thought the “Legends Showcase” DLC was big enough, but now 2K Sports is making the announcement that it’s even larger than we previously thought. Our heads are about to explode. The DLC will be available this holiday season for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network, and 800 MS Points on Xbox Live.

Finally, here’s the full list of NBA Legends being added through this DLC:
