Not surprisingly, NBA 2K18 will have a couple of special editions when it comes out this fall. This year, those editions focus on the well-known Hall of Fame player, Shaquille O'Neal.

Publisher 2K announced today that the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition will feature Shaq on its cover. It'll also include some Shaq memorabilia and digital items. If you buy the Legend Edition, you'll get a Shaq poster, stickers, in-game currency and items, among other things. The Legend Edition Gold also includes a lenticular print and more virtual currency. You can see the full list of items included in these editions below.

In a press release, O'Neal stated, "I want to thank NBA 2K for their continuous support of my basketball and broadcast career. I'm excited to be on the cover of the NBA 2K18 Legend Edition and I hope my fans have a blast playing it up big-man style and recreating my most legendary in-game moments!"

The Legend Edition costs $100, while the Legend Edition Gold will run you $150.

NBA 2K18 launches on September 19 for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, if you buy one of the special editions, you get early access to NBA 2K18 starting on September 15.
