NBA Jam's Next Offering Allows You To Switch Players

Eighteen screenshots, depicting the NBA Finals matchup of Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd versus LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, herald the coming of NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, due later this year as a downloadable title on Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Store.

At its summer showcase today, EA Sports unveiled the arcade hoops hit, touting a "tag mode" that allows you to swap players, finally, and "razzle dazzle" moves that ramp up the over-the-top animations as they head to the basket. Players will feature new AI; the game will feature the old P.A.: Tim Kitzrow returns for more bombastic boomshakalaka calls from the booth.


    hopefully they'll find out a way to have playable online with this - the online lag in nba jam on ps3 is absolutely terrible, even when you're playing against three people in your own city.

    gawwd this game is amazing.

    But can I re-map my buttons?

      I would like that too. I really didn't like turbo being the left trigger on the 360. So many games use the right trigger, which did nothing in this game, so why not have both?

    Nice - although the last time JKidd was that high up he had a ladder :)

    nice, LeBron in some South Beaches, lol.
