Acclaim has confirmed that it will release NBA Jam 2002 for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance. The game, which will be released this holiday season, will feature all 29 NBA teams and more than 140 players. The gameplay will stay true to the series, with two-on-two arcade action. Acclaim sources further confirmed that the game will be similar in its look and feel to the SNES version of NBA Jam. Two new courts--beach and street jam--will be featured in the game. Additionally, half-court super dunks, hangtime, on fire, and hotspots will all be part of the GBA game.
"Having sold more than 6 million units worldwide, NBA Jam is one of the most beloved and successful video game franchises in the history of the interactive entertainment industry,'' said Steve Felsen, senior director of the franchise. "We are pleased to continue our successful relationship with the NBA and expand upon our next-generation handheld lineup for this holiday season.''
NBA Jam 2002 is being developed by Digital Creations. It will carry a suggested retail price of $39.99.
