EA Sports makes changes to NBA game franchises


NBA Jam
Look for more "NBA Jam" action this October, but you'll have to wait another year for a new sim.

EA Sports announced that they are in development of "NBA Jam: On Fire Edition," a new version of the classic series that will be available this October via Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.

According to the game's press release, the new edition will feature:

  • REAL AI: Featuring the ground-breaking AI system used in the Fight Night franchise that learns your tendencies and throws them back in your face.

  • JAM Arena: Play solo, or team up with friends and take on the world in a new, dynamic online competition.

  • Road Trip: A cooperative online campaign where you can team up with friends and compete in a series of white-knuckle challenges against the current superstars and timeless legends from each of the 30 NBA teams.

  • Tag Mode and Team Fire return: Swap players "on the fly" and ignite your entire team by performing consecutive cooperative moves.

  • More NBA JAM Hotness: Online roster updates, more NBA superstars, legendary NBA players, over-the-top animations, JAM challenges, secret teams and unlockable characters than ever before.
