NBA 2K18 Legend Edition will feature O’Neal in Miami Heat gear, while the Legend Edition Gold will have a dunking Shaq in the more classic Los Angeles Lakers uniform.
The game will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch on September 19th, with the early-bird users gaining access September 15th.
