Along with the movie, James will star in “Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game” based on characters from the film.
The Space Jam crew took ideas in December from fans to see what a potential game would look like, and according to Xbox — the platform the game will exclusively be on — this is what it will entail:
“Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game features the beloved Looney Tunes characters Bugs Bunny and Lola Bunny and the newest member of the Tune Squad, LeBron James, as they face the Goon Squad in a wacky basketball beat ‘em up. A rogue artificial intelligence named Al G. Rhythm has trapped our heroes inside the Warner Bros. server, with little chance of escape. The Tune Squad must fight their way through a virtual army of Al G.’s creation while also searching for four pieces of “Legacy Code” that will allow them access to the nefarious villain’s secret location. Al G. has sent two members of the Goon Squad – The Brow and White Mamba – to stop the Tune Squad in their tracks. Fortunately, our heroes have access to a variety of moves, including a special basketball, and some rather unique Space Jam cards, to help them out. But will their teamwork be enough to stop Al G. Rhythm’s evil plans?”
The game will release on July 1 into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks, and it will available for free for all users on July 15, one day before the movie releases.
Also releasing with the game are three brand new, exclusive Xbox controllers based on traits from the film.
The first controller encapsulates the Goon Squad. It combines purple and black and has “Goon Squad” written on the front.
The second is the Tune Squad controller. It combines the blue and orange from the team’s basketball jersey with “Tune Squad” written on the front in its original font.
The third is called the “Serververse”. It merges blue and black to mimic an algorithm, with the Warner Bros. logo in the middle.
Each controller with cost $69.99 USD and will be available starting July 8 on the Microsoft Store and Amazon while supplies last.
Here’s a look at the front and back of each design:
