Zion is NBA 2K21 next gen cover athlete

One more cover athlete will be revealed

You can’t tell us you didn’t see this coming. Zion Williamson of the New Orleans Pelicans was a highly touted prospect coming into the NBA. He’s a freak of an athlete and was prominently featured in the NBA 2K21 showcase for the PS5.

Zion is the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 made for the next generation consoles — the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X.

“Being on the cover of NBA 2K has been a dream since I was a kid and to be the first NBA 2K21 cover athlete for the next-generation of gaming is really special,” said Zion Williamson.

“Since the day I joined Team 2K, I’ve wanted to make an impact on basketball culture both on and off the court, and being the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles lets me do that. I can’t wait to be part of this global phenomenon and hoop with all the ballers out there on NBA 2K21.”

NBA 2K and Zion’s partnership also extends off the court. 2K Foundations, 2K’s program to support underserved communities by revitalizing basketball courts and community centers across the nation, will work directly with Zion to renovate a site in New Orleans for the local community.

Yesterday, it was announced that Damian Lillard is the cover of NBA 2K21 for the current generation consoles. On July 2, 2K will announce the final cover athlete for NBA 2K21, as well as the release date and pricing; pre-orders will go live as well.

Netflix’s Blood of Zeus now in the game Immortal Fenyx Rising

In a themed quest called “A tribute to family”

This crossover just makes so much sense. Netflix’s animated series Blood of Zeus is in Ubisoft’s Immortal Fenyx Rising. Players will be able to dive into a Blood of Zeus–themed quest and purchase an all-new character pack and weapon pack.

From January 21 to January 28, in a Blood of Zeus–themed quest called “A tribute to family”, players will take on two evil creatures of another world: Chimera and Cerberus. Upon completion of the quest, players will earn the Eagle pendant and all-new character customization options tied to “Blood of Zeus.”

The weapon pack contains Blood of Zeus–themed skins for your Sword, Axe and Bow. Meanwhile, the Blood of Zeus character pack lets you walk in the footsteps of the Amazonian warrior Alexia.

Immortals Fenyx Rising is a fresh game with an action and puzzle filled open world that has humor and Greek mythology enclosed into it. You might say it can be a mix of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of wild.

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
