505 Games and NaturalMotion Games have announced that Backbreaker Vengeance, the next game in the Backbreaker franchise, will hit Xbox Live Arcade this summer. Backbreaker Vengeance will take the intensity and appeal of the original Backbreaker Football game and combine it with the pick-up-and-play nature of the multi-million selling iPhone games for a new one-of-a-kind experience in sports games. I've never played the original Backbreaker Football but this sounds interesting.
BACKBREAKER VENGEANCE BRINGING DEVASTATING HITS TO
XBOX LIVE ARCADE FOR XBOX 360 THIS SUMMER
It’s takedown or touchdown in the next chapter of the multi-million-selling franchise, exclusively on digital platforms this summer
Los Angeles, CA – April 14, 2011 - Prepare yourself for the ultimate gridiron showdown! 505 Games and NaturalMotion Games announced today that Backbreaker Vengeance, the next chapter in the genre-changing Backbreaker franchise, will smash through on to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system for Microsoft this summer.
Backbreaker Vengeance takes the intensity and AAA appeal of the original Backbreaker Football console game and combines it with the pick-up-and-play nature of the multi-million selling iPhone games to create a whole new one-of-a-kind sports experience for digital download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360. It takes as its inspiration the wildly popular “Tackle Alley” mini-game in Backbreaker Football to deliver an all-new arcade slant on football.
Backbreaker Vengeance marks the first time the series has been available as a digital download via Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360, featuring non-stop, hard-hitting arcade action; bone-crunching tackles; and tons of swagger from end-zone to end-zone. Unprecedented, hard hitting tackles (with no pre-canned animations) and jaw-dropping graphics complement the distinct pick-up-and-playability that proved so infectious with Backbreaker Football’s “Tackle Alley” mini-game.
“Backbreaker has caught the imagination of the world with its fresh approach to the sports genre. Backbreaker Vengeance for Xbox LIVE Arcade focuses on the aspects of American Football our fans love: incredible euphoria animations, gut-busting collisions, deceptive juke maneuvers and a pick-up-and-play feel,” said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion. “This brutal spiritual successor to the beloved Tackle Alley will show gamers across the world that when it comes to delivering no-frills football action, Backbreaker Vengeance is where it’s at.”
Since its arrival on the mobile platforms in 2009 and on console in 2010, the Backbreaker franchise has garnered over 6 million fans across the world, a testament to its proudly accessible approach to American Football.
