EA Sports NBA Jam revives the classic franchise with vintage NBA Jam gameplay, and all-new features that deliver a fresh new take on the game. Featuring the sights and sounds that fans of the franchise will instantly recognize, EA Sports NBA Jam mixes the old school with the new, to deliver a one-of-a-kind sports presentation.

Featuring gameplay that is true to the original, NBA JAM will have players spinning with ankle breaking moves to the basket and on the way to high-flying, backboard-smashing dunks. In addition to the classic experience, EA SPORTS NBA JAM will also introduce new game modes, characters and gameplay depth.

NBA JAM brought an all-new visual style to the sports videogame genre when it debuted in 1993. Now, the new EA SPORTS NBA JAM re-defines the visuals for a sports game yet again by bringing true-to-life body types, updated physics, and visible player emotion to the over- the - top experience.

Electronic Arts is giving its fans an opportunity to create their own one-liners for the upcoming EA SPORTS NBA JAM videogame. Fans can submit and vote for their favorite lines to be read by the original voice of NBA JAM, Tim Kitzrow, who reprises his role as the legendary announcer.  

Fans can submit their one-liners, and 64 finalists, as chosen by the EA SPORTS NBA JAM team, will go head-to-head in a single elimination bracket with fan votes determining the winners. The four finalists will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their one-liners included in the game and heard by millions of people around the world.

Contest Schedule:

  • May 13th – Contest Submissions Open on Facebook
  • May 19th – Contest Submissions Close
  • May 24th – 64 Finalists Announced
  • May 25th – Fan voting begins
  • June 23rd –Winners Announced

NBA JAM is one of the most popular and culturally influential arcade basketball games ever made, andis widely known for its one-liners like Boom-Shaka-Laka and He’s on Fire,” says Kitzrow, the original voice of NBA JAM. “I am really excited to be a part of the remake and for fans to create the expressions that could become culturally iconic in the years to come.”
