REDWOOD CITY, Calif., January 15, 2003 – Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: ERTS), reveals details for NBA STREET Vol. 2,the follow-up to the hit title NBA STREET, to be released under the EA SPORTS BIGTM brand. NBA STREET Vol. 2 lets players bring their act to the street show and face off against the greatest basketball players of all-time on blacktop courts throughout North America. First team to “21” wins, but in NBA STREET Vol. 2, style and attitude are as important as putting the ball in the basket. Currently under development, NBA STREET Vol. 2 will be available this spring for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Nintendo GameCube and Xbox video game system from Microsoft.
NBA STREET Vol. 2 allows players to choose from a roster of more than 150 NBA stars past and present including Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Walton, Jerry West, George “Iceman” Gervin,”Pistol” Pete Maravich and Magic Johnson, complete with their signature moves, in their quest for street ball dominance alone, with a friend or in the new four-player multi-player mode.
With new moves like “Pass Out” and “Off the Heezay”, players can pass the ball off the backboard or even off the opponents’ head. Now you can even “Be the Oop”. Just use the right analog to pass the ball to another player, take control of the man without the ball and call for the monster alley-oop. Choose from authentic urban worlds that re-create the feel and grit of the true street game, including Soul in the Hole, NY, and Mosswood in Oakland.
School your opponent big time with the show-stopping Second Level Gamebreaker. The more you pour on the highlights the bigger the boost. Make your own history in the new Create-a-Baller mode and earn new moves to show off your street style.
