EA Sports unveils Wii-specific lineup

Monday, June 30th, 2008

EA Sports has announced details of four Wii-specific titles it is developing for release this autumn under its ‘All-Play’ banner.

FIFA 09 All-Play, Madden NFL 09 All-Play, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play and NBA Live 09 All-Play will feature Wii-specific modes, presentation, packaging and controls.

FIFA 09 All-Play promises to offer a “Wii-specific take on the classic ‘11 vs. 11’ simulation or over-the-top ‘8 vs. 8’ arcade action”. The title will also feature Party Games and Table Soccer.

Revealing some of the control methods in the game, EA said Wii users will be able to “steal the ball and make outrageous shots by simply waving your Wii Remote”.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play will boast a “new graphics and user interface while also incorporating interactive and social mini-games”.

EA Sports claims the golfing game will offer a standing swing control that is the “most true-to-life golf mechanic you can find”, and for the first time will allow simultaneous online play for up to four players.

“The Wii platform and the Wii consumer are looking for a very unique sports experience,” said Peter Moore, president of EA Sports.

“We’re excited to take four of our most popular franchises and develop them from the ground up exclusively for the Wii, with unique controls, unique presentation, unique modes and even unique packaging.

“Whether you’re an EA Sports veteran or a rookie gamer, EA Sports All-Play levels the playing field and delivers a fresh new gaming experience.”
