NBA 2K13, developed by the kind folks at 2K Sports, finally has it’s launch trailer as it heads to the Wii U with a hefty amount of fan-fare. After all, the game itself is a pretty evolution on the original, with 4000 animations and improved ball control. That’s not included MyCAREER mode which brings forth detailed analysis and stat-tracking.
