If you’re eagerly anticipating the release of NBA Jam on Wii, but you just can’t wait to get a little bit of arcade basketball action you might want to look to WiiWare next week. July 19th is the expected release date for HoopWorld, which is exactly that. It’s arcade style basketball that is very reminiscent of NBA Jam, or its predecessor Arch Rivals.
Streamline Studios, a Spanish game developer, originally planned the game to be released in 2006 for XBLA. They delayed the game because they were concerned about it’s quality. They spent that time between then and now working on the game, and together with Virtual Toys, decided to bring the game to WiiWare instead.
