EA confirms Wii NBA Jam revival

Exclusive and out this year.

EA has confirmed a Wii-exclusive revival of NBA Jam, and it's penned for release later this year.

EA Canada's doing the honours, and attempting to rekindle the fires which made NBA Jam a hit in the nineties. Those include "warming up" after scoring two baskets and setting on fire after three, literally - powering the player up temporarily.

Games are played two-on-two and the aim, besides scoring more than the other pair, is to slam balls into the net and abide by a cut-down set of rules. We on the street call them, er, street rules.

Improvements include better graphics and "visible player emotion". No shots or videos have been released.
