"I can’t wait to be the first cover athlete on NBA SuperCard," said Minnesota Timberwolves player Karl-Anthony Towns, who also serves as the face of NBA SuperCard

"With more of my fans engaging with the NBA on their phones, this is an exciting way to get your basketball fix before the season tips off."

Cat Daddy Games co-studio head Harley Howe added: "We are incredibly excited for NBA SuperCard. With tough challenges, various gameplay tiers and a number of iconic NBA and WNBA superstars to battle with, NBA SuperCard is poised to become one of our favourite mobile games for our fans to play yet.

"We’re proud to expand the NBA 2K mobile experience, and we look forward to growing this game alongside our community of fans and newcomers."

Karl-Anthony Towns will be the cover star of NBA SuperCard.

Set to celebrate its 25th anniversary in March 2021, Cat Daddy Games has already utilised the NBA license to create NBA 2K Mobile and MyNBA 2K21.

Earlier this year, 2K Games and the NFL announced a multi-year partnership to develop "non-simulation football experiences".
