EA has announced that that an all-new digital download of NBA Jam will be available in October. NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is being developed for the PS3 and XBLA. NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will feature exciting new gameplay enhancements, including ground-breaking artificial intelligence that will change the way gamers play NBA Jam. Something tells us that this won’t make up for not having an NBA simulation (NBA Live, NBA Elite) until 2012.
NBA Jam: On Fire Edition contains new gameplay features including:
- REAL AI: Featuring the ground-breaking AI system used in the Fight Night franchise that learns your tendencies and throws them back in your face.
- JAM Arena– Play solo, or team up with friends and take on the world in a new, dynamic online competition.
- Road Trip – A cooperative online campaign where you can team up with friends and compete in a series of white-knuckle challenges against the current superstars and timeless legends from each of the 30 NBA Teams.
- Tag Mode and Team Fire return! – Swap players “on the fly” and ignite your entire team by performing consecutive cooperative moves!
- More NBA JAM Hotness – Online roster updates, more NBA superstars, legendary NBA players, over-the-top animations, JAM challenges, secret teams and unlockable characters than ever before!
