GREE, NFL and NFL PLAYERS Team Up to Deliver ‘NFL Shuffle’ for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch
Fans Create the Ultimate NFL Team and Blitz Their Way to Victory in New Mobile Football Game
GREE today announced the official release of NFL Shuffle (check out the screenshots here), a new NFL team management game available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. NFL Shuffle, the result of a new partnership between GREE, the National Football League and NFL Players Inc. (NFL PLAYERS), is a free-to-play card game that takes fans into the front office and gives them a chance to run their very own dream football franchise.
“We are excited to launch NFL Shuffle giving our fans an innovative new way to connect with the players and teams they love,” said David Healy, NFL Director of Media Strategy & Business Development. “We are pleased to give our fans more ways to engage with the NFL wherever they are and whenever they want.”
“We’re very pleased to work together with GREE on this fun and engaging mobile game,” said Nicole Pozzi, Senior Manager of Multimedia Licensing for NFL PLAYERS. “We’re confident that fans will enjoy this exciting new way of connecting with their favorite NFL players year-round.”
As an officially licensed game, NFL Shuffle users can create their ultimate fantasy squads using real NFL players and teams on their mobile device. To tackle the competition, players face off their cards against their rival’s – pushing for each down to secure the win. Gamers can experience the ultimate test in NFL Shuffle’s “Season Mode” as they pit their fantasy teams against actual NFL team rosters. Players can also enjoy the fierce challenges of going against other NFL Shuffle players in “Versus Mode.” From the opening kickoff through the final down, NFL Shuffle players can manage their offensive and defensive lineups, mentor players to level up cards, sell or swap player cards, and earn in-game currency and other rewards. NFL Shuffle fans will also enjoy a variety of social features, including playing against friends and finding other fans to connect with and compete against.”
“NFL Shuffle is a new way for football fans to experience the excitement of the NFL all year round,” said Eiji Araki, SVP, Social Games, GREE International, Inc. “We’ve taken the best in card game design and paired it with one of the most celebrated brands in the world to create a fun mobile gaming experience for fans everywhere. We place great value in honoring and representing the needs of our players and football fans, and are looking forward to providing them with an entertaining NFL experience.”
