ESPN reports that EA Sports has acquired the rights to bring back the NBA Jam franchise to the Wii in the not-to-distant future. The new version will, presumably, retain the original's two-on-two format and - let's hope - will also bring back the bells and whistles from the arcade and console classic, like the way players gain superpowers when they make three consecutive baskets ("he's on fire!") or the faux-Marv Albert commentary ("Jams it in!").
