2K Sports have finally confirmed the Legends Showcase downloadable content for NBA 2K12 via an announcement posted on the official Facebook page. The DLC will be available this holiday season for $9.99 via the PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live, with no mention of a PC release.

The Legends Showcase will feature a new, cell-shaded art style and will be set in New York’s Times Square. 2K Sports are promoting it as unlocking hours of additional gameplay as users will be able to take control of over 150 of the NBA’s all-time greatest players to compete in pick-up games, from 1-on-1 match-ups to regular 5-on-5 games. The DLC also includes mini-games such as 21 and H-O-R-S-E, along with a 2-on-2 Teammate Challenge and 3-on-3 Era Challenge. Current players and even your My Player can also be brought into the new modes to take on the greats. The Showcase will also add the ability to play quick matches online with the NBA’s Greatest teams in a regular simulation setting.

Gamers are invited to provide feedback via the official forums, the Operation Sports boards or by tweeting Ronnie 2K using #NBA2K12Patch.
