Make way for Superman!

With the NBA season just two weeks away, you were probably wondering just who was going to step up to the plate and bring some much needed hardwood action to the iDevice. If so, you should be pysched to hear that EA Mobile will be releasing their fabled NBA Live series on the iPhone/iPod Touch.

NOTHING BUT NET. NBA LIVE by EA SPORTST™ delivers the most realistic 5-on-5 action available for iPhone® and iPod touch®!  Tip-off anytime, anywhere, and watch your game come to life in vivid 3D. Even replay your most awesome plays. It’s fun and intuitive enough for the casual gamer, but also delivers the authenticity to meet the demands of the most hardcore basketball fans.

Having recently released Madden NFL 10 and FIFA 10 to the delight of sports gaming fans, EA look to score once again with the iPhone’s first fully featured 5-on-5 basketball title. While Franchise mode seems to be missing, you’ll still be able to play with all 30 teams and real players to boot. That’s right, you won’t be seeing the likes of Kubei Branyon or Lebon Jimenez anytime soon. For all basketball junkies (including myself), be sure to keep an eye out for its release later this month. More screenshots and details after the break.
