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.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
