The gold medal team, which featured the likes of Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, will appear alongside this year's London 2012 Olympic team.
Executive producer Jay-Z was said to be instrumental in procuring the license of certain players, persuading the likes of Charles Barkley to lend his name and likeness.
Announced during this year's gamescom Expo in Germany, 2K Sports also demonstrated some of the game's Kinect features.
Kinect users will have the ability to call certain plays, make substitutions and complain to the referee, a move that could lead to punishment.
The game will also modify the twin stick control method, assigning one analogue stick to the hands and the other to feet/movement.
It was recently revealed that Jay-Z will contribute to the "look and feel" of the title, hand-picking its soundtrack, designing the interactive menus and helping with the presentation.
The game releases for the Xbox 360, PS3, PlayStation Vita, Wii and PC on October 2 in North America. A European launch date is yet to be finalised.
It will also release for the Wii U. Listed for a "holiday" launch, it will likely be available within the first few months of the console's release.
