Highly Popular Football Video Game to Launch en Español

Video game giant Electronic Arts Inc. announced that the highly-popular Madden NFL 08 En Español will be available this December for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game system from Microsoft. Madden NFL 08 en Español features exclusive Spanish language content, including additional music tracks, and Spanish play-by-play and game analysis voice-over.

Fully translated in Spanish, Madden NFL 08 en Español will feature San Diego Chargers defensive end Luis Castillo on the box cover.

Other ways the NFL reaches its Spanish-speaking fans include: NFLatino.com, NFL Monday Night Football on ESPN Deportes, NBC Sunday Night Football in Spanish via SAP, Univision Radio's 30-game lineup, Telemundo specials surrounding Super Bowl XLII, as well as NFL coverage throughout the season on Telemundo's weekly sports and entertainment shows.

Álvaro Martín, the first Spanish-language play-by-play broadcaster for ABC Sports’ “Monday Night Football, is featured as the broadcast voice of Madden NFL 08 en Español.

Madden NFL 08 en Español will also feature three exclusive Spanish songs, “Los Que Luchamos” by Kinto Sol, “Blame Me” performed by Molotov and “Relax” by Maná, added to the Madden soundtrack.

Developed in Orlando, FL by EA Tiburon, Madden NFL Football, now in its 18th year, continues to stand out as Madden NFL 07 was last year’s #1 selling video game in North America with more than seven million copies sold since launching.
