‘NCAA Football 09’ Xbox 360 Cover Athlete Selected, 3 More to Come

Electronic Arts has announced former University of Arkansas running back Darren McFadden has been selected to grace the cover of NCAA Football 09 for Xbox 360.

Xbox 360 is the only cover Darren will appear on, as EA is spicing the cover art world up this year by featuring different athletes on each platform’s version of the game. Next to be revealed is the Wii cover athlete on March 18, followed by Playstation 3 on April 24, and lastly Playstation 2/PSP in early May.

Per EA’s game description, 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.

NCAA Football 09 is expected in stores for all platforms on July 15.
