NBA Jam Creator Joins EA Sports

NBA Jam creator Mark Turmell has joined EA Sports to help drive innovation and grow the appeal of the firm’s American football franchises.

Turmell, who was also responsible for the creation of Smash TV and NFL Blitz, will serve as senior creative director inside of EA Sports’ Central Gameplay Group.

“… I am perfectly positioned to impact and improve the moment to moment football gameplay for both Madden and NCAA,” Turmell said in an internal interview. “Hopefully I can bring a little extra magic to the mix and our games will appeal to an even larger audience.”

Earlier this week sports website ESPN said it had confirmation that EA is planning to announce a brand new NBA Jam title exclusively for Wii.
