Well not officially, but according to ESPN.com EA sports is looking to reboot the franchise on the Wii console. The rights are up in the air right now due to the Activision/Midway sale last year, so there is an easy possibility that this game could get made. In the past years there have been many NBA Jam clones (NBA Street, NBA Hoopz and NBA Ballers) but none have really come close to the excitement of the original NBA Jam series. So here’s hope we get a new version, and as stated in the ESPN article, the creator of NBA Jam Mark Turmell has been hired to do the relaunch. Of course this is all rumors right now, but if it comes out and I can play as Bill Clinton or the Beastie Boys then consider it sold.
NBA Jam set to return on the Wii???
