NBA Jam Debut Trailer

By Rituro - March 17th, 2010

NBA Jam

Once upon a time, it was the 1990s.

Nirvana was at its peak; the internet was poised to explode; somebody cloned a sheep; Midway, with their arsenal of Mortal Kombat and Rush games, was synonymous with arcade superiority and multiplayer goodness. Quarters were poured into standup cabinets and couches suffered severe wear and tear: all in the name of fatalities and screwing Blue Wizard out of food (no matter how badly he needed it).

Then some stuff happened, Chapter 11 bankruptcy, yadda yadda yadda, and we all moved on…

…or did we?

Electronic Arts certainly hasn’t, and judging by the amount of internal cheering I did when I heard these familiar announcer clips, neither have I. It’s not hard to imagine that this might also be true for a legion of fans who remember dunking from the three-point line as Bill Clinton and Air Dog.

NBA Jam is back from the dead and coming to the Wii! Boomshakalaka!

    I’ll be crushed if there isn’t a code to unlock giant-headed players.

    Every game should have that code.
