28 Fake NBA Teams in Japan’s “Super Dunk Shot”

7 Comments

Super Dunk Shot is the 1992 Japanese version of the classic NCAA Basketball game for the Super NES. When the game was released in Japan, however, all of the college teams and players were replaced with amusingly fictional NBA teams and players.

  1. Thank you for sharing. I’ve never even heard of this game. This is amazing.

  2. Ha! The same guys did a baseball game I played the hell out of, Roger Clemens’ MVP Baseball. You can look up the team names, but they didn’t have anywhere near as much fun with them as they did this game. However, if you look on the wiki, they toyed around with player names instead. Darryl Strawberry became Raspberry, that sort of thing.

    1. Haha, yeah, I’ve been considering doing a gallery for that game & other games with fake names. There’s something charming about fake names of real world things like that, especially fake names coming out of Japan.

      1. Check Septentrion, released as SOS outside Japan. It has a fake movie credits reel and it’s something else.

  4. What’s insane is that every team-and every single player on each team-corresponds to those in the actual NBA at the time of release in Japan. I’m fairly certain that the teams and players have the same attributes as their real life equivalents, too.

  5. We used to play this version back in the day. So much laughs from the crazy team and player names!
