Mutant League Football returns at GDC 2015
Who remembers Mutant League Football during the 16-bit era? It was one of those weird, but oddly entertaining “football” games for the Sega Genesis, and it is coming back.
The game, which is being developed by Michael Mendheim, the original’s creator, will be shown off at Game Connection America, as part of GDC this year in San Francisco, which takes place from March 2-5. According to a press release, the game is being developed for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and mobile (iOS/Android).
Originally released in 1993 by EA, the game featured a whole host of monsters as they hit the field to play some football, with a spin-off that followed a year later in Mutant League Hockey for the Genesis.
This new version of the game will include a full season mode (with over 30 teams and a 13-game season), new diabolical stadiums, trick plays a mode called Gridiron Carnage, where weapons like shotguns, chainsaws and axes are allowed, and of course the mutants and monsters themselves.
We’ll be checking the game out next week at GDC and we’ll keep you posted on how the game is shaping up.
