According to Larry Hryb's Major Nelson blog, we now know that the revival of the arcade football series NFL Blitz
will be arriving on the Xbox LIVE marketplace next Wednesday. The regular season of the National Football League comes to a close this weekend, with the playoffs starting the following Saturday. NFL Blitz
will be sandwiched in-between in hopes of riding the playoff enthusiasm.
Development studio EA Tiburon
is at the helm, and they are no stranger to the arcade football experience, having developed Madden NFL Arcade
back in 2009. This time around, they come armed with the Blitz
license and gameplay style, which will surely drum up some nostalgia from fans of the original from the late 90s.
