Earlier this month, EA Canada's Community Manager, Alain Quinto, tweeted that EA Sports is planning to reveal a brand-new game in January. We've been curious as to what the new title could be, and sources close to the project have informed us that the new IP will be a football game for the Wii. Before you go running off -- no, this isn't going to be another Madden game.
The game is currently called NFL Trainer, and it's all about getting players to do football-based exercises and workouts. The new game will also coach players on how to throw footballs, and give you advice on how to perfect throws. There's also talks about a football-shaped attachment that could come with NFL Trainer. As this is going to be a football training game, it doesn't really make much sense for it to not include something of that sort.
Our sources have been reliable in the past, but we'll have to wait for the official word from EA to see if NFL Trainer will actually pan out. January is fast approaching, so we won't have to wait long to see exactly what EA Sports' next game could be.
