The NCAA Basketball wiki last edited by mento on 02/12/16 09:01AM View full history


NCAA Basketball uses the Mode 7 feature of the SNES to create a 3D perspective. The game has no stands, no fans and no backdrop; it only has a court, the players, a basket at each end and a blue background. The camera rotates around to follow the athlete controlling the ball.

NCAA Basketball was considered groundbreaking upon its release. Many games would later follow its example and feature camera perspectives that followed the player with the ball.

In the North American version of the game the teams were chosen from actual NCAA (National Collegiate Athletics Association) basketball teams. In Japan the game is called Super Dunk Shot and has fictionalized versions of NBA teams.The European version, dubbed World League Basketball, includes fictional teams from across the globe.
