Bugs Bunny and LeBron James want you to make the next Space Jam game

Space Jam game

Microsoft, Bugs Bunny, and LeBron James. That’s probably not a set of names you expected to see together but here we are. As part of Space Jam’s marketing campaign, Xbox wants franchise fans to create a game for them. More specifically, they want an arcade styled retro game in the style of many 80s classics.

The new competition has some official rules that you may want to read over. The general idea though is that you send in a proposal with the genre, a key image, and a short description. The description of your game proposal must be less than 500 words to be eligible.

Your dream Space Jam game

Space Jam A New Legacy competition prizeA New Legacy is the sequel to the original 1996 classic film Space Jam. The premise sees a team of basketball stars have their powers stolen by evil monsters. Back then it was up to Michael Jordan and his Disney cast teammates to get them back. But the sequel is a little different focusing on LeBron James and his son Bronny.

Having the opportunity to create your very own game is not something many people get to do. But two lucky winners of this competition will have their proposals brought to life. They will be converted into mini-games in the official Space Jam: A New Legacy game releasing next year.

Also, competition winners will have their names added to the game’s official credits. And if that’s not enough for you, there’s even a set of LeBron James memorabilia up for grabs. Even sports brand Nike are getting behind the campaign and offering various goodies for would be winners.

The announcement rounds off by confirming that Microsoft and Warner Bros. have “more exciting news,” in the works. So be sure to keep an eye out for any future updates on Space Jam game if you’re interested. As for the movie itself, that’s set for a July 21 release in cinemas.

FaZe Clan signs future NBA star Bronny James on a long-term deal

FaZe

The FaZe Clan has had a long history in competitive gaming. From its early days of Call of Duty quick scope montages, it has since grown into one of the most successful eSports franchises of all time. And the latest edition to its line-up suggests they’re now ready to go mainstream.

Announced on the official FaZe Twitter account, the eSports organisation has signed Bronny James to a long-term deal. This deal will see the future NBA star partner up with FaZe as a content creator. It should benefit both parties with FaZe getting mainstream marketing whilst Bronny James can grow his streaming platform.

This is smart from FaZe

LeBron James son joins FaZeDespite his likely NBA focused future, Bronny James has established himself as a legitimate streamer. He has over 330,000 followers on Twitch and regularly streams a large variety of games. Amongst these include NBA 2K20, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Fall Guys.

It’s no secret as to where his popularity comes from. As I’m sure many of you are aware, Bronny James is the son of NBA superstar Lebron James. The three times NBA champion and 16 times NBA All-Star is widely considered the greatest basketball player of this generation.

Even if its an indirect connection, having a link like that is a huge win for FaZe. Also, it’s very possible that Bronny James could grow to incredible stardom himself in the future. When millions are watching him score baskets on TV in years to come, FaZe will receive plenty of exposure.

The only real concern for FaZe is that Bronny may not be able to focus on his steaming career going forward. Being a competitive NBA player is a lot of work and balancing that whilst actively streaming seems difficult. Regardless, it should be interesting to see how this partnership works out.
