EA's Revolutionary Madden Game

The long-running football series is coming to Revolution Wii in ways you never dreamed of before.

While Nintendo has wowed people with its fancy new motion-sensing Wii controller, many have wondered aloud about the fate of traditional games on the console. Nintendo insists that it will still have its classic series there for hardcore gamers, but we still know little about what will happen to, for want of a better term, normal games.

EA is giving direction here. During a demonstration of the upcoming Madden Revolution to news site GameSpot, the company revealed that it has pulled the series from its usual development home and passed it to a team in Canada. (It should be noted that the new studio has people from current Madden developer Tiburon).

The developers there are reimagining the game for the Wii and using the controller for all sorts of in-game functions, including hiking, kicking and passing the ball and controlling runners on the field.

Working with real-world motions complicates matter, though. EA's John Schappert told GameSpot how the throwing mechanism had to be refined to take into account how different people will physically move the controller to throw the ball.

And that's not all. It appears that EA is already working on redesigning some of its other franchises, which include FIFA and Tiger Woods PGA Tour. The company says it's not ready to name them "just yet", but that bodes well for an unveiling at next month's E3.
