For the first time ever, Bo Jackson will be appearing within the Madden NFL series. If you own Madden, you will get the chance to own Bo in Madden Ultimate Team as well as Madden NFL Mobile (which is basically a mobile Ultimate Team game).
There will also be special Bo-themed Live Events available which will allow you to use Bo Jackson to earn rewards for your team.
While it's doubtful Jackson will be as dominant as his Tecmo Super Bowl self, it will be fun to play as one of the greatest athletes of all time in Madden.
What do you think of Jackson's inclusion into Madden's Ultimate Team mode?
