Xbox announced that Space Jam: A New Legacy will get a new beat ‘em up tie-in game that will be available on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on July 1.
In Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game you can take control of Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, or LeBron James and work their way through swarms of goons using power-ups and special powers. The game was inspired by the old-school arcade beat ‘em ups like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Simpsons.
Space Jam: A New Legacy — The Game started as a contest in it Xbox asked fans to send art for what a new Space Jam arcade game might look like. Xbox then took the winners’ ideas and used them to create the final game with guidance from the developers at Digital Eclipse. Two winners were chosen and will get a sweet-ass prize package that includes signed memorabilia, a private screening of the movie, and their name in the game’s credits.
The sequel to 1996’s famous Looney Tunes/NBA crossover movie Space Jam, 2021’s Space Jam: A New Legacy follows sports legend LeBron James as he and his son try to basketball their way out of a video game controlled by an evil AI played by Don Cheadle. Along the way, James and his son get help from the Looney Tunes squad featuring Bugs, Daffy Duck, and furry awakening instigator Lola Bunny. This is not the first time a Space Jam movie got a tie-in game. Acclaim Entertainment, made a 3-on-3 basketball game that was inspired by the 1996 Space Jam.
