NCAA Football 09 announced for Wii

http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/080214/20080214005665.html?.v=1

I love NCAA and my only console is the Wii so this is a no-brainer. I question having a mascot as the coverboy though.

It's being made by the Fusion development team at EA Canada, same people making the PSP version. I wouldn't get too excited.

Re: NCAA Football 09 announced for Wii

Will there be a way to transfer rosters via an SD card?

Smile Re: NCAA Football 09 announced for Wii

This is great news for me. I have been playing this series since the days on the Sega Genesis. I sold my 360 last year and got a Wii. I just assumed that this would be the end of NCAA Football for me. "Not so fast my friend!" Looks like I will be able to keep the streak alive. I hope we will be able to edit the rosters.

I was worried about that as well, until I saw this from Bill Harris's blog at Dubious Quality: EA Sports O Canada. Now, I'm happy that the Wii and PSP versions are being developed in Canada.

In my homer opinion EA Canada > Tiburon or any other EA for that matter.
Look at the top 2 games created by EA Canada:
1. NHL 08
2. skate.
Those two were major canidates for GOTY IMO in a year with HALO, COD4, and Super Mario Galaxy.

I hope they build the 09 Wii game based off of the Xbox1 08 gameplay and graphics engine, rather than the 360 gameplay and graphics engine. I hope that the Wii game is a refined NCAA Football '08 for the Xbox1 with Wii-motion control and new Wii interface...

That's what it will likely be. Actually, it will probably be based off of the PS2 version but with a little more graphical polish if history is correct.
