EA unveils NFL Training game for Wii

Part of the EA Sports Active family.

EA wants to train the next generation of American Football stars with EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp.

The game was announced for Wii with a release date of 16th November. However, EA mentioned that Training Camp will be a part of the EA Sports Active 2 suite of games being developed for Kinect, PS3 and iPod Touch.

Made with the help of real-life NFL coaches, Training Camp has 70 drills and challenges to improve strength, power and conditioning. Your reactions and "first-step quickness" will also get better, apparently, as will your "skills".

EA demonstrated NFL Training Camp on stage last night during a Showcase presentation. The man participating was jogging on the spot and pushing his arms out the left and right as if deflecting an imaginary assailant.

It looked gruelling.

Should NFL Training Camp prove successful, I wonder how long until FIFA Training Camp pops up.
