Madden 08 Wii producer interview

Posted June 12th, 2007 at 4:11 am


IGN has posted up an interview with associate producer for the Wii version of Madden 08. Some of the highlights of it are below.

-Focused on refining the controls, making them simple and more responsive

-Graphics are improved 

-Party mode with 4 player action. Includes utilization of the Mii

-Added a telestrator

-Online play, roster updates, but no voice support 

-Uses EA Nation usernames, not Wii friend codes 

As I thought when the first news on it came out, it is sounding like the game will be a hit again for the Wii. Specifically that telestrator sounds like a lot of fun and making its way online is a big step. 

Will the additions and improvements be enough to get the hardcore fans playing it? That will probably still be tough. However the casual market is there on the Wii and it should appeal very well to them.
