We recently told you that Microsoft and Warner Bros. teamed up to launch a game based on Space Jam: A New Legacy. The idea of the title would be the responsibility of a fan and the project developed by Digital Eclipse. If this concept caught your attention, you should know that the Space Jam game already has a release date and that you can play it before its official debut thanks to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
The Space Jam: A New Legacy contest winners were Ricky from the United States and Narayan from India. His idea was for Digital Eclipse to make a classic-style beat ‘em up game starring LeBron James, Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes. His story is concentrated in the intersection of pop culture that we will see in A New Legacy.
In other words Space Jam: A New Legacy movie The Game will be a side scrolling game where you will use LeBron James and members of the Looney Tunes as you pass through scenarios full of enemies that they will defeat with blows. All this in settings with graphics reminiscent of classics from the arcade era.

“Our team is comprised primarily of gaming industry veterans who grew up when arcades were flourishing. That era of video games is a constant reminder of some of the happiest times in our lives. That feeling of joy, coupled with the amazing IP of Looney Tunes and of course a basketball icon like LeBron, is what prompted us to try to capture the magic of those days and the spirit of popular games during that time. We wanted to bring a taste of that to modern gamers, especially those who never got to experience the days of arcade machines, while also rekindling a sense of nostalgia, “said Stephen Frost, Executive Producer of Digital Eclipse.
