NBA 2K13 has been available in North America since the very start of the Wii U's existence. Europe had to wait a little longer to shoot some hoops, with the game being released earlier this month.

Europe has also had to wait longer for a demo, something that's been in the North American Wii U eShop for a while. Well worry not European B-ball fans, because the demo for NBA 2K13 is available right now in the eShop - better late than never, eh?

We think the game is one of the best basketball sims around, as we explained in our NBA 2K13 review. If you're still unsure, you can now play this demo before putting it in your shopping basket.

Will you be giving this one a go, Europe? Let us know what you think to it in the comments section below.
