NBA Baller Beats is a Kinect-only game that puts a real basketball in your hands in a fun, high energy and first-of-its kind participative basketball experience.

NBA Baller Beats gets players on their feet mastering mad ball handling skills using a real basketball while playing to the beat of an eclectic soundtrack. The Kinect motion sensor captures every movement of both player and ball to create an entirely new basketball gaming experience.

Aspire to perform like a pro in NBA Baller Beats as you train alongside your favorite NBA franchise unlocking songs, difficulty levels, and over 100 posters and trading cards showcasing NBA players’ greatest moves.  The music is your guide as you master ball handling skills, dribbling, and baller moves with a real basketball as Kinect technology tracks your every crossover, pump fake, behind-the-back, around-the-world and more!  Become the ultimate baller and increase your stamina in single player mode, break it down and practice different skills in Move School mode or show-off in multiplayer mode and go head-to-head against up to 8 players – the highest score wins bragging rights.   No matter the level of your skills, players of all abilities will enjoy getting off the couch and raising their game with NBA Baller Beats.

NBA Baller Beats will come packaged with a full-sized officially-licensed NBA game ball replica from Spalding, the official provider of the NBA game basketball.  NBA Baller Beats, which is set to launch this fall exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360, gets players on their feet mastering ball handling skills while playing to the beat of an electrifying soundtrack.  The Kinect motion sensor captures every movement of both player and ball to create an entirely new basketball gaming experience. 

“With NBA Baller Beats we’re focused on delivering an innovative game that stays true to the NBA brand so it made perfect sense to bundle the game with the high-quality NBA game ball replica from Spalding,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. “Spalding has long been a leader of innovation and quality and has been providing the NBA with the official game ball for nearly 30 years.” 

Additionally, Majesco Entertainment today revealed a product integration agreement with sports trading card company Panini America to feature Panini’s 2012 NBA HOOPS basketball trading cards as unlockable in-game rewards.  NBA Baller Beats lets players train alongside their favorite NBA franchises unlocking songs, difficulty levels, over 100 posters and Panini’s NBA HOOPS trading cards showcasing NBA players’ greatest moves. 

“Panini is the world’s largest sports and entertainment collectibles company and the exclusive trading card of the NBA,” said Christina Glorioso, Chief Marketing Officer, Majesco Entertainment.  “As players master their moves in NBA Baller Beats they’ll start to unlock a collection of official Panini NBA HOOPS trading cards featuring NBA players from every franchise.”

The NBA Baller Beats soundtrack features a mix of music across decades and genres including hip-hop, rock, and old school classics, with tracks from Kanye West, Run DMC, Gorillaz, Them Crooked Vultures, Common, Tiesto and more.  Majesco Entertainment will unveil NBA Baller Beats gameplay, as well as additional soundtrack artists and songs, during the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo held in Los Angeles this June before setting out to give fans a try at exclusive basketball camps this summer.
