by on October 22, 2010

EA have just released a fact sheet for the upcoming NBA Jam reboot, coming out on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on November the 26th.

We thought people would be interested to read some of the key features, which are as follows:

ONLINE Progression—– Level up through a series of challengers and secret online JAM Challenges to unlock online exclusive rewards and hidden content in the ultimate quest for global bragging rights.

Jam Party ONLINE—–Create a party by inviting up to 4 friends to play in Unranked Classic and Remix games.

Two Campaign modes—–Want to experience some nostalgia? Then pop into Classic campaign mode to get exactly what you remember from NBA Jam. Looking for something a little bit different? Jump into the Remix Tour and experience an all-new twist on Jam – choose your own path to glory as you participate in game modes that you might not expect and face off against some of the biggest legends in the sport.

Unlock this or Unlock that – Complete Jam Challenges to unlock game modes to characters, to secret teams and Special Courts, NBA Jam will feature a whole lot of content for you to unlock as you progress thru the game.

Boss Battles—They are some of the greatest players to have ever played the game of basketball. They are legends that will not go down easy. They are standing in your way and you need to get by them. Jump into a unique take on the Jam franchise with boss battles. The best players doing what they do best. They will frustrate you with their skills, but you have to beat the best to be the best.

Tim Kitzrow – The original voice that captured the attention of a nation is back voicing all the classic lines you remember from the original NBA JAM, as well as a host of new ones, including some created by fans

Remix Games ONLINE—Play Classic 2 vs. 2 with power-ups, Backboard Smash, Domination Free-for-All, Domination 2 vs. 2, Elimination and 21 against friends and rivals online. Track results on Leaderboards.

Multiplayer Goodness – Go at it alone or jump into the multiple multiplayer options available in NBA JAM. With 2-on-2 co-op play throughout the campaign mode, as well as 2-on-2 head-to-head competition, there are lots of ways to share the NBA JAM love.

Another rather interesting tidbit is that the RRP for the game is only £29.99 which makes it even more intruiging.  For all the people upset about the NBA Elite delay, this may soften that blow and if you want to hear that magical “boomshakalaka” once again, this seems like a definite purchase!
