Chosen One emerges April 21

Next installment in Midway's NBA Ballers arcade b-ball title landing on Xbox 360 and PS3 in two months.


Donning his Superman cape earlier this month, Orlando Magic superstar and NBA Ballers: Chosen One cover athlete Dwight Howard captured league bragging rights as the winner of the NBA's 2008 Slam Dunk Contest. Undoubtedly hoping to attain similar acclaim for its latest arcade-style basketball game, Midway has announced that Chosen One will arrive for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 21.

As with previous installments in Midway's Ballers series, Chosen One lets gamers live the life of an aspiring NBA star as they seek to gain status in one-on-one and two-on-two games of street ball. The likenesses of more than 65 NBA stars are slated to appear in the game, and Midway has implemented a variety of new features, including a new globe-trotting Chosen One Tournament mode, the ability to learn NBA stars' signature moves, and new camera angles that highlight the cinematically stylized sequences in the game.
