Mark Turmell still has the MJ & Glove version of NBA Jam

For those who haven't seen it yet, Shack News has posted a great interview with Tim Kitzrow, the voice of NBA Jam. He talks about working on a deal to get a new NBA Jam game out, especially with it being the game's 25th anniversary, but he also mentions the possibility of an old one being re-released:

"So that was a cool side story, he was all excited about having the game I lent my voice to. And he became a one-time-only character for the cabinets that he has. That's kind of a nice side note. Mark Turmell and I, we have spoken and it was on Reddit in an interview, [he said] he does have the original Michael Jordan/Gary Payton game, and we're somehow going to find out if there's a way we can release it. It's like the Holy Grail, the Michael Jordan one-off-only NBA Jam game. We just have some legal hurdles to go through, but we're hoping for the 25th anniversary to get that done.

I imagine that's going to take quite some negotiations to get done, but I really hope it comes to pass. It'd be awesome to have the original re-released, and the special rare edition with MJ and Payton no less.
