IGN was able to catch up with Streamline Studios and ask them how Hoopworld was progressing
. The team decided to redo all of the animation and make it "less cartoony". They also revealed a bit about the multiplayer.[quote]The 12 characters, designed with a Mezo-American quality, each show off their own strengths as players, and as many as six players can pick them in offline and Xbox Live-enabled three-on-three games. Hoop World is built around a simple single-player campaign and an online set of modes including quick play and the equivalent of tournament mode. The fast-action offensive play mixes dodgeball-style sport with an unusual combat style melee and takes place in all sorts of wild outdoor settings that look like basketball courts designed in the Rainforest.[/quote]Sadly the team still couldn't even hint at a release date for this game.
