"Being the first artist to throw down the full soundtrack for 'NBA Elite 11' was pretty amazing," Wonder said in a statement. "I was able to mesh together the two things that I love in life, basketball and music."
Cole, who is prepping the release of his debut album, was equally excited about the new business venture. "As a big sports video game fan, it's an honor to be a part of EA Sports 'NBA Elite 2011," he said. "I thank EA for trusting in me to create the game's main song."
This latest game introduces several significant game play changes centering on increased user control. "The new 'Hands-On Control' scheme allows for one-to-one responsiveness of a player's movement and actions on the court," read the press release for the game. A new physics system "allows each player on the court to move independently of one another, removing the two-man interactions that have long taken the user control out of basketball simulation video games."
'NBA Elite 2011' hits stores Oct. 5 and will be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.
