As reported by Operation Sports, it seems that we might be seeing a new NBA Jam game at some point in the not too distant future. Responding to a question on Twitter, the game’s legendary announcer, Tim Kitzrow, mentioned that a deal is “in the works”.
Hoping that it happens, deal in the works

While this is by no means confirmation that a new NBA Jam is coming out – in 2018 or otherwise – it’s certainly promising news. If nothing else, it sounds as though EA Sports does have some interest in developing another NBA Jam title. With the 2010 reboot being a solid game, and On Fire Edition being one of the best arcade basketball games to date, I for one would welcome a new instalment for the current generation.
We’ll be sure to post further details if and when an official announcement is made. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below, as well as join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum.
