is only a few weeks away, and the long-awaited sequel is getting a video game related. Xbox and Warner Bros. Pictures have revealed Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game, which will debut on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on July 1 as part of the perks program. On July 15, it will be available for free download from the Microsoft Store on Xbox.
Since this is a Space jam game, you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s about playing basketball. Instead, it’s a beat’em up where LeBron James, Bugs Bunny, and Lola Bunny take on the Goon Squad. You’ll be looking for pieces of Legacy Code, which will help you find the secret location of the villain, a dishonest AI called Al G. Rhythm. The Tune Squad can use a number of moves, including a special basketball, to take down baddies.
In December, James, Xbox, and Bugs Bunny asked fans to submit ideas for a game based on the film. The retro game specialists at developer Digital eclipse crushed someone’s idea for a beat ’em up with mechanics suggested by someone else. The game will arrive just before the hybrid animation / live-action film hits theaters July 16.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has unveiled a trio of cool limited editions. Xbox Wireless Controllers with designs inspired by Space Jam: a new legacy and the game. The bright Tune Squad model features one of Bugs Bunny’s favorite colors, Carrot Orange, while the Goon Squad version is a black and purple number. The Serververse controller, on the other hand, looks a bit like a server schematic. They each cost $ 70 and go on sale July 8.
