Madden Heading to 3DS at Launch
If you ever doubted the power of the 3DS, you need only take a look at that image there to have a real hand-in-side moment; that looks awesome. Oh, and, by the way, Madden NFL Football (no year) is set to be a launch title for the 3DS when it launches in March-ish. Yeah, that’s not really football season, unless you’re into Arena ball, but what the hell, right? Might as well. God, that looks good.
Here are the specifics of the 3DS version of Madden, as provided by the EA press release because they can say it better than I could:
Madden NFL Football will offer a comprehensive handheld experience with exciting modes, such as authentic 11-on-11 football, fast-paced 5-on-5 action and Season Mode. Additional features jump off the screen with 3D graphics, such as “Spotlight Moments” and “Call Your Shots”. Utilizing the remarkable power of the Nintendo 3DS Touch Screen, “Call Your Shots” allows users to draw their own plays, on-the-fly, directly on the screen.
With three types of play calling—GameFlow, Classic, and Arcade—Madden NFL Football provides an enjoyable experience for gamers of all skill levels. GameFlow automatically selects the best play for the situation based on real NFL team gameplans; streamlining play calling and shortening overall game length for a more accessible experience. Classic play call allows users to experience the full depth of selecting formations and individual plays, while Arcade play call simplifies options through a more concentrated playbook.
Madden NFL Football will bring each of the 32 NFL teams and stadiums to life like never before with a presentation optimized for viewing in 3D, including 3D specific cameras that provide new levels of depth, making Madden NFL Football the perfect on-the-go game for every football fan.
Well, I hope “season mode” is dynasty, because I would be very sad if there were no dynasty mode in this bitch.
