EA confirms Wii version of NBA JAM

nbajamLet’s not mention the disturbing trend that’s been cropping up lately – namely that gaming studios are taking a tip from Hollywood and seem to be rehashing a lot of old titles instead of coming up with new ones – and instead rejoice about the recent rumor-turned-official announcement: NBA JAM is coming for the Wii.

That’s according to a press release from EA issued today. The rumor broke out on ESPN last week, but now it’s officially official.

There’s no release date given other than sometime in 2010 and given that many of my formative years were spent playing NBA JAM, I probably don’t have much choice but to buy it. The game is currently being developed by EA Canada.
