EA has confirmed that NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will be heading to Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network in October. The headline feature is the new AI system, apparently borrowed from the Fight Night franchise. This system will learn any patterns in your gameplay and use them against you, which sounds a bit ‘SkyNet’ for my liking!
There will be a new online mode called ‘Jam Arena’, as well as a co-op online campaign called ‘Road Trip’. Road Trip lets you ”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”.
EA are also promising more unlockables, and online roster updates.
