“It’s a huge honor to be recognized on the first-ever Canadian cover for NBA 2K and represent the Raptors after eight years with the team,” DeRozan said in a press release. “The fans up here are super passionate about basketball, so it’s cool to help introduce a cover that’s just for them.”

It’s still unknown if 2K will make this a yearly cover campaign for Canada. It’s also unknown if they will venture out to other places outside the US. What is know is that this is a great first step to reaching fans internationally.

NBA 2K18 is set to launch September 19 for Xbox One,PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
