NBA 2K18 DeMar DeRozan Cover Announced for Canada

Do you like the NBA 2K basketball sim franchise? Live in Canada? A fan of the Toronto Raptors? Yes to all? Then you’ll be glad to know that for the first time ever, 2K is releasing an NBA 2K18 cover just for Canada! And as one can expect from the headline, it stars Toronto Raptors shooting guard, DeMar DeRozan.

According to the press release, “The selection of ‘Heir Canada’ also marks his own first cover for the series, capping off another dominant season where he led his team to a fourth straight playoffs appearance.” Mind, I didn’t coin or know of that “Heir Canada” nickname for DeRozan.

Check out the full cover featuring DeMar DeRozan below.


In case you didn’t know, the “regular” edition features Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving as the cover athlete, while the NBA 2K18 “Legend Edition” features Shaquille O’Neal as the cover star.

NBA 2K18 will be out this September 19 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch and PC. If you plunk down a pre-order, you’ll be able to play it a few days early.
