The Wii-exclusive (wait, really?) NBA Jam, in the grand tradition of Jams that’ve come before it, apparently includes as secret characters Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John McCain, and Sarah Palin, as well as Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, and George W. Bush, according to a recent article on ESPN. To quote Trey Smith, the game’s Creative Director, “Sarah Palin is hilarious in the game. She has a beehive haircut and a helicopter dunk that is just awesome.” Also: “Dick Cheney has the Darth Vader snarl.”
The Beastie Boys are also reported to be secret characters in this game, though it’s unclear if anyone in the Wii’s core audience is old enough to know who they are.
NBA Jam jams into stores today. Is it the shoes?
