One of my fondest arcade memories of all time (and the major reason that I was sad that I didn’t own an N64) was the hours and amounts of cash that I pumped into playing NBA Jam Hangtime at the local arcade.
Sure the earlier ones were awesome fun on my Megadrive but Hangtime really hit the money. A new NBA Jam has been announced by EA but sadly, it will only be seeing the light of day on the Nintendo Wii.
I do have a sneaking suspicion that it will eventually land on PSN and Xbox Live as well, and that folks, is a great reason to get excited.
Ooooooooooh Ka-Boom. Hit the jump for a screenshot.
A possible first screenshot has been released showing a rather strange graphics style that will possibly blend 3D models and 2D photographs of the player.
I really hope that it’s as awesome as Hangtime was back in the day. Heck, can’t they actually just rerelease it on XBLA and PSN? That would make me really happy.
