NBA JAM is Coming to Nintendo Wii
I saw this in the current issue of Nintendo Power, and just loved loved LOVED it. Are publishers finally realizing that Nintendo Wii is an arcade games platform? Wii Sports Resort and Super Mario 5 should have driven that fact home.
These screenshots (and the photos in Nintendo Power) look absolutely fantastic. It's the classic NBA Jam we all know and love, brought into the 21st Century. We should take heart that Electronic Arts has put Mark Turmell (NBA Jam's creator) in charge of their sports games.
If the new NBA Jam plays as well as it looks, and there are lots of hidden characters and surprises - President Obama is a must - this game will be a sensational smash.
