As someone who has played Barkley Shut Up And Jam on the Genesis, I was pleasantly surprised by the indie game that took the lore (as much lore as a street basketball game can have) and added a Japanese RPG flare. This resulted in the popular Barkley Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden. After learning of a sequel being funded through Kickstarter (and its subsequent release date of early 2016), I was intrigued to find any new information on the game. A few weeks ago at PAX Prime in Seattle, a playable version was shown and here’s what we have to go by now.
Before hitting the break, the actual FULL TITLE of Barkey 2 is this:
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

Aside from the being one of the best cult movies ever and having arguably the BEST MOVIE SOUNDTRACK EVAAAAR, it now has one of the best and most nostalgic PC mods ever.
