Microsoft and Warner Bros. are tipping off an epic partnership, celebrating the release of the new movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” coming in 2021. The campaign launch teams up Xbox with basketball champion LeBron James, Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes Tune Squad and the target is to amplify coding education and create an original Xbox arcade-style video game inspired by the movie.
Between december the 14th and 30th, fans aged 14 and up can visit the official contest website to review official rules and submit their game ideas. To enter, fans select the gaming genre of their choosing using a key image, and then describe the idea in less than 500 words.
Two winners will have their ideas brought to life in the official “Space Jam: A New Legacy” arcade-style video game, available as a Perk for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 2021.
Winners will also have their names featured in the game credits; an exclusive winner’s bundle with signed and authenticated LeBron James memorabilia, “Space Jam: A New Legacy” merchandise and Nike VIP packs, and a personalized Xbox Series S console; a private friends and family screening of the film; and a virtual Microsoft coding workshop for their local community.
To help coders of all ages jump-start their creativity, Microsoft Stores are also hosting free lessons and workshops on video game creation in which the students will be able to build a playable prototype of a video game.
