NBA Live 08 for Wii Confirmed, Cover Athlete Revealed
Marco Halili 4/30/2007, 2:23pm Eastern Time

Hibachi!

It is unknown whether Washington Wizards All-Star Gilbert Arenas will be screaming his portable grill-based catchphrase in the upcoming NBA Live 08, but an Electronic Arts press release has revealed two other important details regarding the game: Arenas will be featured as the cover athlete of the title, and Nintendo fans will be able to play as him and all the other NBA players on Wii, a first for the basketball franchise.

"This is a dream come true," said Arenas, who also mentioned he is an avid fan of the NBA Live franchise. "I'm a huge gamer and have been playing NBA Live since 1995. I never imagined that I would see my face on the cover of an EA Sports video game."

Details about the Wii iteration of NBA Live 08 remain scarce at this point, but the title is due to release across all scheduled platforms this fall.
