Music will be at the core of the game as stated by Alfie Brody, the vice-president of global marketing for N B A 21.
On another note, there have been leaks concerning the career mode of the game. game has by no means confirmed those info. They must therefore be taken with a grain of salt. They come from an alleged Visual concepts (the developers for N B A 21) member of staff. According to his post published on 4chan, the current gen versions of the game will be very similar to N B A 20. There will also be references to Kobe Bryant in game. His statues will be present in the neighborhood mode and the Jordan Rec Center will become the Mamba Rec Center.
The post also teases more personalization options for the players’ avatar in the MyPlayer mode. The players will be able to create a unique avatar by using pie charts to balance different statistics. There will also be more accessories and cosmetics than what was available in the past. More hairstyles, tattoos, clothes and even masks. Finally, there will be more than one neighborhood in the game. As stated before those are only rumors, most of the teased feature would be a great addition to the game.
