Blood. Bones. Fangs. Touchdowns? Mutant Football League, the spiritual successor to the 1993 Sega Genesis cult classic Mutant League Football, is finally being released on PS4 and X-Box One. The NFL Blitz style 7 on 7 football starring insane characters will be smashing its way to your consoles on January 19th. Press release is as follows:
MORTON GROVE, Ill. – Jan. 5, 2017 – After receiving heaps of threatening letters, angry late-night phone calls, and one unmarked box of manure (wrapped in holiday paper, natch), indie game developer Digital Dreams Entertainment has finally relented and will release Mutant Football League™ for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners on January 19th, 2018.
The bloody-fun, next-gen spiritual successor to the 1993 Sega Genesis classic Mutant League Football will invade the Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, and spark new debates about soft balls, shotgun hits, and proper decapitation protocol.
Football fans and gamers will experience deep strategic 7-on-7 gameplay, bone-crunching and tooth-shattering hits, plus a roster of comical ghouls delivering tongue-through-cheek humor. Oh, and-of-course blood. Lots of blood.
Mutant Football League features legendary voice-over actor Tim Kitzrow; best known for his work in one of the great classic sports games of all time, NBA Jam, with such memorable sound bites as “He’s on fire!” and “Boomshakalaka!” A few MFL refs were bribed to guarantee the commentary of Mutant Football League on PS4 and Xbox One remained as foul-mouthed as the original smash hit PC version. It’s like Conker’s Bad Fur Day for sports fans! However, don’t worry… there is an option to turn off the expletives in case small children or Republican senators are in the room.
Mutant Football League for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launches on January 19th, 2018.
I for one have many fond memories of Mutant League Football and cannot wait to sink my claws and tear this one limb from limb.
