EA Sports Vancouver has, unsurprisingly, confirmed no online multiplayer for NBA Jam on Wii.

Not even through the console’s Wi-Fi connection, even.

While this many not be absolutely shocking news for some, it may confuse others due to EA Sports titles Madden NFL, FIFA, Tiger Woods PGA Tour and Grand Slam Tennis having online multiplayer on Wii.

To console yourselves, take note that the Wii version has the Remix Tour, which is full of boss battles and single and local co-op challenges.

Those purchasing NBA Elite 11 on PS3 or Xbox 360  new, will be provided with a free one-use download code for the online multiplayer.

NBA Jam ships for Wii October 5, and NBA Elite 11 for Xbox 360 and PS3 ships the same day.
