Although EA Sports recently disappointed NBA fans by announcing that they would not be releasing a new NBA basketball simulator game this year, they also revealed that they would be launching a new downloadable version of the NBA Jam game in its place.
According to pastapadre over on the pastapadre.com website, the new game — titled NBA Jam: On Fire Edition — will be coming to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade sometime in the fall. One of the main features in the upcoming game is the new AI system.
The AI system featured in the upcoming NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is the same one that’s used in the Fight Night boxing franchise. The Real AI system learns all your gameplay techniques and uses them against you. Players can also look forward to a couple of new modes.
The first is JAM Arena, which enables gamers to play solo or team up with friends and compete in dynamic online competitions. The other is Road Trip, an online co-operative campaign that allows players to team up with mates and compete in a series of challenges.
NBA Jam: On Fire Edition also sees the return of both Tag Mode and Team Fire. Players can also look forward to other features such as online roster updates and unlockable characters. Will you be downloading the NBA Jam: On Fire Edition game?
