It’s not often we see the worlds of football and basketball cross, but that’s exactly what is happening with NBA 2K17 as Thierry Henry is confirmed as a playable character. We’ve got the screenshots to prove it!
Ex-France and Arsenal star Henry may now be suited and booted in his role as Sky Sports pundit, but that’s not to stop him hitting the courts of NBA with a playable role in NBA 2K17, the upcoming game which is due to arrive on 16th September 2016.
In NBA 2K17’s Blacktop mode, the mode in which you can play different types of basketball games ranging from 1 vs 1 to 5 vs 5, Thierry Henry will be available as a playable character, where you can test his skills against the greatest players of all time.
“Being a basketball and NBA fan since I was a kid, I’m honoured to be the first football player ever to be playable in NBA 2K17″, said Thierry Henry. “Seeing myself go toe to toe with the legends of the sport is an amazing feeling.”
Make sure you check out NBA 2K17 when it releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC soon.
