The Wii version of Madden NFL will be demonstrated for a group of elite critics and industry media later today at EA’s Studio Showcase 2006.

Creatively, the game play possibilities are staggering and endless,” said John Schappert, Senior Vice President and General Manager, EA. “Nintendo is excited to see the broad array of signature franchises that EA’s talented development teams are designing for Wii,” says Reggie Fils-Aime, president and COO, Nintendo of America Inc. “The combination of sensational games with Wii’s unique play control will thrill players and breathe new life into video games.” For more information about the franchises, please visit www.ea.com.
