Though the Sega Game Gear did get its deserved NBA Jam port back in 1993, as we all know, the Sega Master System never did, which does sound kind of silly, doesn't it? I mean the two consoles are virtually identical and the SMS was rather popular around Europe and Brazil, and, well, why? We'll never really know I suppose, but we might just get to finally play NBA Jam on our favourite 8-bit console. And love it.
As GameSetWatch recently let us know, SMS Power founder Bock has posted images of a just discovered copy of the prototype of NBA Jam for the Master System. It apparently is a fully working game, complete with the multiplayer options the GG version lacked. You can see more screenshots of NBA Jam SMS over at SMS Power. Oh, and apparently the thing will soon be released to the public.
