To honor the match made in basketball heaven, NBA 2K23 will bring back the Jordan Challenge, allowing players to recreate legendary moments from Jordan’s prolific career. Introduced in NBA 2K11, the Jordan Challenge had 10 challenges. Now those challenges will be pumped up to 15, yielding five new ones for the moments of his playing time with the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, the Chicago Bulls and Team USA. The game will also feature archived footage, along with commentary from Jordan’s teammates, opponents and other NBA figures who have seen him make history on the field.

The Championship Edition isn’t called as exclusive because of Jordan’s embodiment of the term “champion.” It just happens to be a new NBA 2K edition that comes with a one-year subscription to NBA League Pass, giving players access to every NBA game that airs during the season. Pricing for both the Michael Jordan Edition and the Championship Edition has not been disclosed, but the latter is expected to be a bit expensive.

NBA 2K23: Michael Jordan Edition and NBA 2K23: Championship Edition will be published on September 9.
