NBA-Jam-2K17-ROM-Hack-for-Super-NintendoWhat’s not to love about NBA Jam? Despite its age, the two on two match-up has stood the test of time with its fast paced action and hilarious multiplayer gameplay. Knowing how well regarded the game is it should come as no surprise that fans have unofficially updated the game to feature this year’s roster.

With the all new title NBA Jam 2K17, this brand new ROM hack for the Super Nintendo updates NBA Jam: Tournament Edition, all whilst keeping the original gameplay intact. This includes various new team additions and a massive 117 current players such as Lebron James, Russell Westbrook, and Steph Curry.

Also alongside the arrival of teams not in the original game - such as New Orleans, Toronto, and Memphis - each and every player has had their attributes edited to match that of their current abilities too. Furthermore NBA legends such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant are waiting to be unlocked alongside the likes of Scottie Pippen and Reggie Miller.

And last but least, the creator of NBA Jam 2K17 has paid tribute to the original developers of the game by also including a selection ‘political’ and ‘pop culture’ secret characters. You guessed it, both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton make an unofficial appearance, as does the unusual additions of Harambe the gorilla and Kanye West.


So whether or not you’re up to date on the latest teams taking the court, now’s perhaps the best time to dunk yourself into NBA Jam once more. In order to play NBA Jam 2K17 you will need an original ROM of Tournament Edition to which you can apply the downloadable xDelta patch too. Full instructions can be found in the patch download.
