The cover art for NBA 2K11 featuring Michael Jordan as the cover star has been revealed.

The cover uses a mix of red and white (the team colors for the bulls) and features Michael Jordan’s token tongue as he dribbles the ball. The words “The Greatest of All Time” also appear above the “NBA 2K11” logo.

The game will be released for every system under the sun except the Nintendo DS. That includes: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP and PC.

“It’s an honor to be featured on the cover of NBA 2K11,” said Jordan, current majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats. “I have no doubt that NBA 2K11 will be a big hit with gamers and basketball fans alike. I’m looking forward to getting back out onto the court, virtually. Let’s hope they get my dunk from the foul line right.”

“Without a doubt, Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time and we’re excited to partner with a living legend,” said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports. “Working with Jordan adds tremendously to our game and lets us do things with NBA 2K11 that we’ve never been able to do before.”

The game is scheduled for release on October 5, 2010.
