Today, Natural Motion finally released the box art for the long anticipated first title, Backbreaker. The cover is nothing flashy and considering they don’t have any kind of real licensing I didn’t think it would be. Nope, instead they are seeking to let the game really speak for itself, the gameplay that is. Natural Motion set out to make a football title that would make EA stand up and pay attention, because for the last few years EA’s Madden has had no competition when it comes to the gridiron.
Backbreaker has been in development for a while and some were starting to wonder if it would ever come out so this appears to be a good sign. Now that we have official box art, we have to think that it may actually see the light of day in 2010, maybe. Last time we talked with the Backbreaker team they said that they would not be rushed, that the game would come out when it done and they are sticking with that.
