BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio)— Celtics fans playing the latest installment of the NBA 2K video game franchise will hear a familiar voice when playing as their team.

Celtics' public address announcer Eddie Palladino is featured in "NBA 2K22" as the public address announcer for the Celtics' in-game stadium, a new feature to the franchise. The franchise's official twitter account announced the feature, which will appear on its past and current generation version of the games, in a video showing off soundbites from announcers for each NBA team.

Palladino told WBZ's Chris Fama (@CFamaWBZ) he was gushing with excitement to be included in the new game.

"I've gotten great response from friends and family that are gamers," Palladino said. "They think its the greatest honor in the world."

He also took time to describe the process of creating all of the audio tracks for the game.

"I think we landed on like 3,260 voice recordings and [I] had to do them in my excited TD Garden voice and in the monotone visitors announcing voice," Palladino said.

"NBA 2K22" released on Sept. 10 and is available on for the PlayStation 4 and 5, XBOX One and Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

WBZ's Chris Fama (@CFamaWBZ) has more from Palladino.
