NCAA Football 09 will unveil the all-new Break Away Animation Engine which allows gamers to break in and out of moves giving the user more direct control as well as instant influence and responsiveness on the field. At its core, NCAA Football 09 will focus on wide-open collegiate style gameplay featuring unique animations that you will only find on college football Saturdays. This style of gameplay will allow agile backs like McFadden to show off their break out speed and maneuverability in-game.

To commemorate the first NCAA Football video game on Wii™, the video game’s packaging will feature a platform exclusive NCAA college team mascot. Fans will be able to choose their favorite NCAA FBS (formally known as Division 1-A) college team mascot, and will ultimately decide which college mascot will represent this year’s NCAA Football 09 Wii cover.

“Nintendo is excited to have NCAA Football 09 available for Wii. In my family, NCAA Football has always been a family event,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s vice president of Licensing. “Now with the Family Play mode from EA we can share the football experience all year long.”

NCAA Football 09 for Wii will feature EA SPORTS Family Play, as seen in NBA Live, Madden NFL and FIFA. EA SPORTS Family Play is a multiplayer, social experience that allows novice users to compete against advanced players and still enjoy success. Regardless of the gamer’s ability or skill level, EA SPORTS Family Play creates an accessible and rewarding gaming interaction for all to enjoy. In this new style of play, users are given the option to choose Advanced or Family Play when entering a game. Advanced users take complete control of all aspects of gameplay, while players who choose Family Play are given control of key actions on the Wii Remote– such as passing, snapping, and kicking – while letting the game’s AI control player movement.

Voting for the NCAA Football 09 Wii Cover Mascot Challenge will start on Thursday, February 14. By visiting the official NCAA Football website fans can cast one vote per day for their favorite college mascot until the contest closes on Thursday, March 6. The winning school’s mascot will be announced March 14 on the NCAA Football 09 website.

NCAA Football 09 for the Wii and PSP are produced by the Fusion development team at EA Canada in partnership with EA Tiburon. NCAA Football 09 for the PS2 and PS3, and Xbox 360 are developed by EA Tiburon located in Orlando, Florida.
