Called the "Mamba Forever" edition, the special cover of the hit video game series by 2K Sports will be available for both current and next-gen consoles for $100.

The 'Mamba' edition will include Kobe-focused perks such as a Sapphire Kobe MyTeam card, a Mamba MyPlayer uniform and Black Mamba custom MyTeam jerseys.

The two variant covers which feature the Los Angeles Lakers legend in his number 8 and number 24 jerseys are now up for preorder. A fitting tribute to one of basketball's GOATs.

Kobe previously appeared on the cover of 2K10. Meanwhile, NBA 2K21 is expected to drop this September.
