2K Games has announced not one, but two new guest commentators for the upcoming NBA 2K18. This iteration of the popular sports game will be getting NBA champions Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett as special guest commentators for the game. This is pretty exciting news for any big basketball fan!

NBA 2K18 will release September 19 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and PC. That’s a lot of systems! However, if you pre-order the game, you’ll be able to play it four days early, on September 15. Additionally, 2K18 will get a demo titled NBA 2K18 The Prelude on September 8.

If you’re wondering a bit more about 2K18’s improvements over 2K17, here’s a nice breakdown:

  • Photo Techniques – The developers used new photo techniques with the ability to separate colors for more accurate player skin tones that react to light in true-to-life form.
  • Uniforms – The team visited the NBA New York offices to laser scan each and every new Nike uniform and over 200 pairs of shoes to capture each detail, down to the stitches.
  • MyPLAYER – The customization is like never before, with almost an unlimited amount of body types available and options to adjust and scale nearly every aspect of the athletes in game.
