NBA Showtime was the first Midway NBA game to feature 3D graphics, in the same style as the NFL Blitz series, with which it later appeared in Midway’s SportStation cabinet. The game combines many of the arcade basketball mechanics of earlier NBA Jam games with 3D graphics that were novel for the time, along with NBC branding and announcers designed to loosely resemble an NBC game broadcast. NBA Showtime adds somewhat to the existing formula with a personal foul system which awards free throws to the opposing team. Note that it can be a bit of a pain to get the game working properly depending on which version of the game and MAME you’re using, but it’s worth the effort for some late-90s arcade basketball.
