Backbreaker Vengeance has been announced exclusively for Xbox Live Arcade as a downloadable version of the console title that was released on Xbox 360 and PS3 last year from developer NaturalMotion Games and 505 Games. It will be released this Summer.
Backbreaker Vengeance takes the intensity and AAA appeal of the original Backbreaker Football console game and combines it with the pick-up-and-play nature of the multi-million selling iPhone games to create a whole new one-of-a-kind sports experience for digital. It takes as its inspiration the wildly popular “Tackle Alley” mini-game in Backbreaker Football to deliver an all-new arcade slant on football.
Backbreaker Vengeance marks the first time the series has been available as a digital download, featuring non-stop, hard-hitting arcade action; bone-crunching tackles; and tons of swagger from end-zone to end-zone. Unprecedented, hard hitting tackles (with no pre-canned animations) and jaw-dropping graphics complement the distinct pick-up-and-playability that proved so infectious with Backbreaker Football’s “Tackle Alley” mini-game.
Here is the debut trailer for Backbreaker Vengeance on XBLA.
“Backbreaker has caught the imagination of the world with its fresh approach to the sports genre. Backbreaker Vengeance for Xbox LIVE Arcade focuses on the aspects of American Football our fans love: incredible euphoria animations, gut-busting collisions, deceptive juke maneuvers and a pick-up-and-play feel,” said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion. “This brutal spiritual successor to the beloved Tackle Alley will show gamers across the world that when it comes to delivering no-frills football action, Backbreaker Vengeance is where it’s at. Since its arrival on the mobile platforms in 2009 and on console in 2010, the Backbreaker franchise has garnered over 6 million fans across the world, a testament to its proudly accessible approach to American Football.”
