The cover star for NBA 2K23 is Michael Jordan. The cover of NBA 2K23: Michael Jordan Edition and NBA 2K23: Championship Edition will feature the faces of His Royal Airness.

After being featured on the cover of NBA 2K11, NBA 2K12, and NBA 2K16 Special Edition, Jordan is back on the cover of NBA 2K23. Jordan was once again chosen as the cover star to match his famous jersey number with the title and to honor his legendary career with Answer the Call, the theme for this year's My Player campaign mode.

After making 23 the most recognizable number in sports, it was only fitting that for NBA 2K23, we introduce the Michael Jordan edition.

Introducing our #NBA2K23 Cover Athlete Michael Jordan

🏀Michael Jordan Edition

🏆Championship Edition

Pre-order starting 7/7

— NBA 2K (@NBA2K) July 5, 2022

The Jordan Challenge will be brought back by NBA 2K23 in order to honor the match made in basketball heaven. The Jordan challenge was introduced in NBA 2K11. Five new challenges will be added to account for the times he played with the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, the Chicago Bulls, and Team USA. There will be commentary from Jordan's teammates, opponents, and other NBA figures who watched him make history on the court.

Jordan's embodiment of the term "champion" isn't the sole reason for the Championship Edition's name. The NBA 2K edition tier has a one-year subscription to NBA League Pass that gives players access to every NBA game that airs during the season. The Championship Edition is expected to cost a little more than the Michael Jordan Edition.

The NBA 2K23: Michael Jordan Edition and NBA 2K23: Championship Edition will be released in September.
