The Takin' It to the Hoop wiki last edited by Mento on 01/13/15 12:39PM View full history


Takin' It to the Hoop (known as USA Pro Basketball in Japan) is a basketball game featuring teams of five athletes. It uses cutaway scenes whenever a player dunks the ball, or performs a free throw. In these cutaways, the players look more realistic, but look far more cartoonish on the court. The game was a TurboGrafx-16 exclusive, developed and published by Aicom in Japan. In the US, the game was published by NEC directly.

The game features eight non-licensed American teams:

  • Seattle
  • L.A.
  • Honolulu
  • HI AG (Midwest)
  • Dallas
  • Boston
  • New York
  • Miami
