EA Announces 3rd NBA Street Title EA Announces 3rd NBA Street Title

Electronic Arts announced that NBA STREET V3 is in development and scheduled for release in early 2005 under the EA SPORTS BIG brand. The game is being produced by Electronic Arts Canada, the studio which also is home to the NBA LIVE and NCAA March Madness hoops videogame franchises.

The third chapter in the multi-platinum-selling NBA STREET series rises above the rim and expands on the customization and variety of game modes and gameplay that helps distinguish the franchise within EA's basketball portfolio. Gamers can build their reputation as they create the future of street basketball with all-new jaw-dropping, ankle-breaking, rim-shaking moves in visually stimulating environments, from favorite courts like The Cage and Rucker Park to the next generation of streetball sanctuaries, like Venice Beach. It all adds up to give V3 a revolutionary style all its own.

Featuring NBA legends, today's top stars, and original characters from past editions, NBA STREET V3 will attempt to make over-the-top, larger-than-life moves even bigger. Customize your baller, build courts from the ground up, throw one down in an all-new dunk contest and go online to put your reputation to the test.

The game is slated to ship on the PlayStation 2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube in early 2005.
