ESPN let the cat out of the bag last week, but now it's official: Electronic Arts announced this morning that a new version of NBA Jam is headed to the Nintendo Wii.
EA promises to revive the franchise with "vintage NBA Jam gameplay, and all-new features that deliver a fresh new take on the game. Featuring the sights and sounds that fans of the franchise will instantly recognize, EA Sports NBA Jam mixes the old school with the new, to deliver a one-of-a-kind sports presentation on the Wii."
Along with the classic gameplay you probably remember, the new version of Jam will feature "true-to-life body types," updated physics, and "visible player emotion." It's a Wii exclusive and it's scheduled for release in 2010.
So, on a scale of one to 100, how excited are you for this game? I'm hovering around a 66. I have many fond memories of the original (Boom shaka-laka!), but on the other hand, it's for the Wii only! Couldn't we get a 360 version?
