Jimmy “G” Buckets (the “G” stands for gets) is next in line to have his virtual picture taken for NBA 2K17.
All week, 2K Sports has been revealing screenshots of players from Team TISI +% 2K, and Wednesday is the Chicago Bulls swingman’s day.
As I’ve done all week with Paul George and Kyrie Irving, I’ve taken a snapshot of Butler in a similar pose from NBA 2K16 for comparison sake. Here’s a look at the comp:
It’s clear to see, 2K Sports has taken measures to create a clear differentiation in body types. George, Irving and now Butler all have noticeably thicker builds.
If you recall the render of Kevin Durant we saw in the Team USA trailer, the thinner body frames just might contrast well against the more muscular or thick players.
Butler’s hair appears to be captured better, as is his shorter wingspan. His face is a little more sculpted, and as has been the case with the other two reveals, he looks more life like.
With Gamescom in motion, we should be getting our first glimpse of gameplay soon–though it may be of the shaky-cam variety.
