Space Jam: A New Legacy It arrives in theaters and on HBO Max in the US on July 16. But in recent months, Xbox and Warner Bros. have also been preparing for the arrival of a game that fans have fancied, and we know it’s officially available on Xbox Game Pass on its release day.
A game that players have imagined!
Xbox says it received a lot of ideas to create a game like the movie, and in the end two people were chosen: Narayan from India and Ricky from the United States. Ricky’s idea was to create a classic “beat ’em up”, and Narayan added some special mechanics to it, all in keeping with the classic ’90s arcade games.
Space Jam: A New Legacy – The game will therefore feature the characters of Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny and new Tune Squad member LeBron James while facing the Goon Squad in a goofy basketball game.
A dishonest AI named Al G. Rhythm has trapped our heroes inside Warner’s servers, forcing the Tune Squad to make their way through the virtual army created by Al G while searching for four pieces of the “Legacy Code” that will allow them access to the secret location of the infamous villain. .
The new Space Jam: A Legacy will be released on July 1, 2021 as a perk for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members and will be available to everyone for free starting July 15. The game was developed by Digital Eclipse, an arcade-style studio.

Other news accompanying the movie’s release is that three Xbox consoles in Space Jam colors have been imagined by the Xbox teams.
- Tune Squad, featuring one of Bugs Bunny’s favorite colors: carrot orange
- Goon Squad is purple
