Microsoft has surprisingly announced a game for the theatrical release of Space Jam: A New Legacy for PC and Xbox. Initially, the title will be available exclusively to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers from July 1, 2021. On July 15th, the 2D arcade game will be available as a free download for all other fans in the Microsoft Store.
The Digital Eclipse team based its development on Beat’em-Up classics from the 1990s. The trailer already gives a first glimpse of the gameplay of Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game. Among others, LeBron James, Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny can be seen in the video. The film can be seen in cinemas from July 15, 2021. In the USA, the successor will also be offered at HBO Max at the same time. In Germany, Sky is the partner responsible for HBO productions.
In addition to the game, Microsoft will also bring three different Xbox controllers in the exclusive Space Jam design on the market. The gamepad offers the same features that the normal controller of the Xbox Series X / S has. The special editions will be available in the Microsoft Store and from selected partners on July 8, 2021.

The cast of Space Jam: A New Legacy includes LeBron James, Don Cheadle, Cedric Joe and Sonequa Martin-Green – the music comes from Hans Zimmer and Kris Bowers. It is the sequel to the original, published in 1996, in which Michael Jordan was in front of the camera as a basketball player.
