NFL Blitz Gets Firm Release Date

Posted December 12th, 2011 at 1:15 pm

EA Sports’ reboot of NFL Blitz now has a confirmed date for its arrival on XBLA and PSN. The digital-download offering will release on Tuesday January 4th for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 for 1200 MS points or the equivalent $15.

Over the weekend Ray Rice won the vote to be the digital cover athlete. Buzz on the game has been positive – and the various modes included sound as though they’ll provide good value – but the NFL nixing late hits has seemed to wear down anticipation levels considerably ever since it was first discussed following the game’s announcement.
