The rebirth of the NBA Jam franchise is upon us as EA prepares to launch the reboot of the franchise across multiple platforms next month. A full feldged retail version of the game will be released on the Nintendo Wii while the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game are set to be released as scaled down, downloadable titles available alongside purchases of NBA Elite 2011.

As the game edges closer to release, EA has released the final rosters that will be included in the game as well as a new trailer. It has also been officially announced that the Wii version of the game will not include an online multiplayer function.
