Tales of Game's Kickstarting a sequel to basketball RPG Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden

A sequel to the Hoopz Barkley SaGa

Tales of Game's Studios is Kickstarting a sequel to its 2008 Japanese-style role-playing basketball game, Tales of Game's Presents Chef Boyardee's Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa.

The 2008 release was made as an unofficial sequel to Accolade's 1994 basketball game featuring NBA legend Charles Barkley, Barkley Shut Up and Jam!.

In an announcement on its website, Tales of Game's said that it will be Kickstarting a sequel to the 2008 game that will be titled The Magical Realms of Tír na nÓg: Escape from Necron 7 - Revenge of Cuchulainn: The Official Game of the Movie - Chapter 2 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa.

The studio wrote on its site:

Barkley 2 is an action RPG that continues the story of the previous game and features an open, non-linear world for players to explore and discover. Barkley 2 pits the player as X114JAM9, an amnesiac baller with no recollection of his past and no concept of his incredible b-ball destiny. Only the arcane wisdom of the otherworldly slam scholar Cyberdwarf can reclaim his lost memories... and lost b-ball powers. But first, X114JAM9 must evade the sinister grasp of the malevolent A.I. Cuchulainn, his would-be captor and the ancient nemesis of all ballers, hoopsters, slammers and jammers.

The 2008 sequel (video below) is a free to download from the game's site.

A Kickstarter campaign for the game is expected to launch later this month.
