Title: New NBA Jam!
Post by: Adrian's Dad on January 05, 2010, 11:27:36 AM
He's on fire!

ESPN reports that Electronic Arts has acquired the license for Midway's NBA Jam and has assigned EA Canada's Vancouver studio to a reboot of the franchise. The game's original creator, Mark Turmell, who currently works at EA Tiburon as a senior creative director, is allegedly collaborating on the project, which, according to ESPN, will "ship to retail exclusively for the Wii."

With no other platforms mentioned in the report, the story sounds a bit off. However, 1UP, which has partnered with ESPN on the sports network's video game wing, has suggested XBLA and PSN versions of a new NBA Jam are also in the works, though that is not corroborated by the original report.

We've contacted EA and Turmell for confirmation and details. EA Sports will allegedly announce the game later this month.

LOL I played that game to death on Sega Genesis.  Not to be a downer, but I can't imagine EA not messing it up (despite having the game's creator working there) by attempting to modernize the title.  Only time will tell. 

Interesting if it ends up only on Wii, though.  Thing better have sick motion controls to be exclusive worthy.  I would DL the original game off XBL or PSN in a heartbeat, though.
