News: EA's John Schappert confirms Madden is coming to Nintendo's next console.



In an interview with Gamasutra, EA's Senior Vice President John Schappert talked about the upcoming Revolution edition of Madden.

Madden NFL 07 for the Revolution is being developed at EA Canada by a team that was created specifically to develop Revolution games.

Schappert described the game thusly:
"So for example, you're hiking the ball. You grab the controller, and you pull it up. And you snap the ball, without pushing a button. To throw, you take your hand and you gesture a throw motion. The harder you gesture, the more you send a bullet pass. If you gesture softer, you throw a lob. If you're kicking, you take the controller as if it were your foot and swing up on it. The straighter you keep it angled the straighter it goes. If it's tilted a bit, the ball might sway.

You're... a receiver, you just caught the ball. You want to stiff arm? Take your hand out and extend it. You want to juke left or right? Jerk your arm left or right. So in addition to using the pointing device to select plays, we've completely redone the control scheme as if the Revolution was the only platform."

He went on to talk about EA's philosophy when it comes to bringing games to the Revolution:
"We're saying, hey, you just bought the Revolution. It has a unique controller, and this game is unique. This is proof of why you bought the Revolution. We're not simply going to port games, we're going to make them so you feel they're unique and original offerings. Sure you might have played a football game before, but not like this."

Madden NFL 07 has no official release date (but I would peg it close to the Revolution launch at the end of the year) and will debut at this year's E3.
