NBA Jam: On Fire Edition has unexpectedly received a new roster update for the 2012/2013 season, reflecting the latest transactions and adding some of this year’s rookies. The new rosters come as a welcome surprise, as my previous inquiries into the possibility of getting new rosters for the game indicated that no updates were planned.
Newly added rookies include Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Bradley Beal and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, though as with the players added in last year’s updates, their names aren’t called by Tim Kitzrow. There are also a few errors in the update as Jason Kidd is still on the Dallas Mavericks’ roster and a couple of the unlockable legends are one of the two default players for their respective teams.
To download the new rosters, simply go to the Online Arena from the main menu; obviously, your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 must be connected to the Internet to do this. The game will then automatically check for and download the new update, along with all the required art assets. Feel free to post your thoughts on the update in the comments below and discuss NBA Jam: On Fire Edition in The Virtual Hardwood section of the NLSC Forum.
