Midway Sports Enters the Red Zone

CHICAGO--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--March 18, 2002-- Midway Sports(TM), the sports brand of leading software industry publisher and developer Midway Games Inc. (NYSE:MWY - news), announced today that NFL® Blitz® 20-02 will ship tomorrow for the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube(TM). The only dedicated extreme-style football videogame for next-generation systems, NFL Blitz 20-02 showcases exclusive 8-on-8 action and over-the-top, adrenaline-style gameplay and real NFL attributes. NFL Blitz 20-02 is currently available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Game Boy® Advance. Officially licensed by the NFL and PLAYERS INC and featuring real NFL teams, players and stadiums, NFL Blitz 20-02 has evolved to bring fast-paced action, visually stunning graphics and NFL strategy to the next-generation of game systems. NFL Blitz 20-02 has been totally reinvented, delivering more than just an arcade or simulation football game, but a mix of extreme-style action and authentic NFL realism. "NFL Blitz 20-02 will bring an in-your-face realistic football frenzy with outrageous plays, hits and action to Xbox and Nintendo GameCube," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. "The all-new NFL Blitz 20-02 will rival any football highlight reel." New, next-generation features have been added to NFL Blitz 20-02, bringing tremendous depth and intense excitement to the series. To keep the opposition on its toes, gamers can use the new "Impact Player" feature to edit the route or assignment of a featured NFL player for any offensive or defensive play they call. By dominating either side of the ball -- moving the chains or blowing through the line to sack the QB -- gamers can watch their team catch "on fire" and perform even more outrageous moves and over-the-top animations, including motion-captured moves from professional stuntmen. To add even more authentic attributes to the ferocious gameplay of NFL Blitz 20-02, Midway signed an exclusive deal with Oakland Raiders defensive back and perennial Pro Bowler, Charles Woodson, to appear on the package cover and in advertising materials. Woodson also participated in a motion capture session, where he performed his signature moves. NFL Blitz 20-02 Xbox and Nintendo GameCube Key Features
  • Extreme Football -- The best extreme-style gameplay available on any console
  • Player Format -- New 8-on-8 format adds more players to the NFL Blitz mix
  • Impact Player -- This evolutionary play-calling system allows the player to "on-the-fly" alter the route or assignment of the impact player within any play in the team’s playbook

  • Multiple Player Models -- Player models that feature different body styles based on player positions
