Madden NFL Football (sometimes mislabeled as Madden NFL 3D[1]) is a sports video game for the Nintendo 3DS which was developed by EA Sports.[2] The game was developed by EA Sports North Carolina in Raleigh.[3] First images of the game were shown by IGN in February 2011.[4] The game was released as a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS on March 22, 2011 in North America (whereas the release date had been scheduled for March 27, at first[5]).

Features[edit]

The game inherits features from past Madden games. Other than the traditional 11-on-11, the game also features a 5-on-5 mode, returning from Madden NFL 09 All-Play on the Wii. The 5-on-5 mode can also be used in Season Mode.[6] The game also features GameFlow, a feature from Madden NFL 11 where the AI automatically selects the play depending on the game situation.[7] Players also can select whether or not to include GameFlow, or play with an arcade version. Standard versions are also available.[8] From Madden NFL 10, also from the Wii, is Spotlight Moment, where the game goes into slow motion whenever a critical event occurs.[9][10] Also from the Wii games, players can Call Your Shots, where players press the Y button to call their own routes for the receivers.[11]
