 EA today announced that the newest
iteration of the street football arcade series FIFA Street will return
with a new look that turns the game’s global football icons into
stylized action heroes and a simplified control system that enables you
to easily perform over-the-top trick moves. Scheduled for release in
spring 2008 under the EA SPORTS BIG brand, FIFA Street 3 is in
development in Vancouver, B.C. by EA Canada, and the studio that is
also home to the industry-leading FIFA 08 videogame.

Talk about an instant money-making device. Take the world's most popular sport, transform it into a psychadelic, super-charged videogame and slap some famous faces on the screenshots. But can the game live up to the hype?

The third
chapter in the FIFA Street series creates a fast-paced and
larger-than-life arcade football experience for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. FIFA Street 3 creates a hyper-real world that merges the game’s
biggest stars with environments that pulsate to the music in exotic
locales around the world.

Featuring over 250 of the world’s best
players representing 18 of the top international teams, each player has
been rendered into a stylized caricature with heroic qualities. Decked
out in authentic training kits, every player boasts their own,
distinctive style of play with unique abilities to match. Whether
you’re after brawn, brains, silky skills or crunching tackles to
complete your team, the perfect street player is out there. Choose from
Tricksters, Enforcers, Playmakers and Finishers to give you different
options on the ball and make your mark on the street.

“We have
completely re-invented the FIFA Street franchise by turning the game’s
biggest stars into action heroes using art direction that makes you
look twice,” said Joe Nickolls, producer on the project. “The power of
the Next Generation hardware gives us the horsepower to break new
ground for consumers, making it the perfect stage to enjoy a
multi-player, sports action arcade experience. Casual gamers and sports
fans can expect a simplified control system that makes it easier to
perform spectacular moves and enjoy the game with friends, yet still be
a challenging experience for more seasoned gamers.”

Using the same
engine as the critically acclaimed NBA STREET Homecourt basketball
arcade game, combined with the market-leading AI from FIFA 08, FIFA
Street 3
delivers animations and ball control that enables you to take
complete control of your players with a responsive and intuitive
control system that makes it easier than ever to pull off sensational
moves. Use the simple button configuration and analog stick to
seamlessly combine moves – providing you with hundreds of different
ways to show off your street skills. Fill up your all-new Game Breaker
to power your ultimate abilities and express yourself like never
before. Maneuver your players to leap past defenders, flip off walls,
or perform gravity-defying one-timers to score spectacular goals.

From
the urban playgrounds of South America to the rooftops in Asia to the
streets of Europe, your players perform to an eclectic selection of
music seamlessly infused into the surroundings, where the game’s
environments pulsate, and explode to life with every well-timed tackle,
outrageous trick move or unstoppable shot on goal.
