EA has sent word that what they are calling "the first 3-D sports strategy game", NFL Head Coach, is now available for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. It has an MSRP of $39.99 and is rated E by the ESRB (Just letting you know, in case you were worried about it being filled with nudity).
“NFL Head Coach is a completely unique football experience unlike any other football game EA SPORTS has ever created," said Todd Sitrin, vice president of marketing, EA Tiburon, the studio famous for making the top-rated football games Madden NFL and NCAA Football. “Now the focus is on the six days leading up to game day and the strategy behind every coaching decision made. This is the game to decide if you really have what it takes to turn your team into a champion.”
Not only will you coach your team on Sunday, but you'll conduct practices, delegate to assistant coaches, and even try to swing draft day deals. If you can't wait to get a jump on your Madden 07 season, you'll be pleased to know that you can transfer your team from NFL Head Coach to Madden 07 when Madden's released this August.
If you're interested in the concept, but not sure how you'll like it, check out the free PC Demo that was released this week. Sure it's not a PS2 demo, but you obviously own a PC, so now is your chance to see if you're hardcore enough for NFL Head Coach.
