A seemingly final boxart picture has started showing up for Madden Football for the Nintendo 3DS. What’s strange is that no year is associated with the title. It’s simply called Madden Football.

Could this be because the game is based on Madden 11, which was released on other consoles around half a year ago? Selling the game in March with an 11 attached to the end of it could give potential buyers the idea that the game is old. Since EA wants to get Madden out for the launch of the 3DS, it would be safe to assume the rosters will mirror those of Madden 11. I suppose they’re hoping people don’t care that the next version will be out just 6 months after this one.

Nintendo Everything gives us details of what Tony Marinello, EA North Carolina designer, said about the Nintendo 3DS as reported in a recent issue of Nintendo Power.

“It’s a pretty powerful handheld. The graphical processing unit on it is really sweet. You’ll notice we’ve got some rim lighting effects, for example, and environment maps on the helmets. Plus we’re using a lot of the assets from the ‘next-gen’ versions of the game.”
