Madden NFL Football (sometimes mislabeled as Madden NFL 3D) is a sportsvideo game for the Nintendo 3DS which was developed by EA Sports. The game was developed by EA Sports North Carolina in Raleigh. First images of the game were shown by IGN in February 2011. The game was released as a 3DS US launch title on March 22, 2011 (whereas the release date had been scheduled for March 27, at first).
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. The game also features GameFlow, a feature from Madden NFL 11 where the AI automatically selects the play depending on the game situation. Players also can select whether or not to include GameFlow, or play with an arcade version. Standard versions are also available. From Madden NFL 10, also from the Wii, is Spotlight Moment, where the game goes into slow motion whenever a critical event occurs. Also from the Wii games, players can Call Your Shots, where players press the Y button to call their own routes for the receivers.
