EA's latest arcade sports game comes in the form of Madden NFL Arcade. Originally mentioned in an EA conference call a few months back, EA today announced the game "officially" and stated the title will be available this coming December.
The 5 on 5 NFL title aims to cater to both hardcore and casual gaming fans with its simple pick-up-and-play action, and allows gamers to see their favourite players as they've never seen them before.
Coming in at 1,200 Microsoft points ($15), players can choose from one of 32 teams and try to gain 60 yards in 4 downs - no penalties or field goals though - in a race to score 30 points and be declared the winner. Like the NHL title had, Madden NFL Arcade will feature a number of bonuses called, "Game Changers", 13 of them in fact. These include the ability to add an entourage of lineman to get the sack, freeze an opposing player, turn off your opponent’s passing icons, and much more.
