NBA Jam is Coming Back!

NBA Jam Many of you may not get as excited about this as me, but NBA Jam is making a comeback on Nintendo Wii. NBA Jam is one of the all-time classics for video games.

For those who don’t remember the game or have never heard of it, NBA Jam is a two-on-two basketball game that was first released as an arcade game in 1993 and then, soon after, became a video game. According to Jon Robinson from the ESPN Video Games site, “the game shattered all coin-op records, and still holds the mark for the most money earned at a single location in one week.” Not surprisingly EA Sports, who is working on recreating the game, has brought in NBA Jam’s original creator, Mark Turmell, along with others who were involved with its original release.  Here’s hoping they also bring back the voice of the original game, Tim Kitzrow, who was famous on the game for his phrase “Boomshackalacka!”

EA Sports plans to officially announce the game later this month. It will be sold exclusively for the Wii. I can’t wait to find out the release date!
