It was announced today that Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has been chosen for the cover of EA SPORTS FIFA 11.
The 28-year-old Brazilian football hero will be the center-piece of global advertising, marketing and promotional campaigns for the most popular* sports videogame in the world. Kaka is part of an iconic group of 17 football stars who will adorn FIFA 11 worldwide and joins Manchester United and England sensation Wayne Rooney, who graces the pack for the sixth consecutive year, as joint cover star in the UK. Kaka will be accompanied by football stars from other teams in other countries in territory specific packaging when FIFA 11 is available in stores September 28 in North America and October 1 in Europe and Asia.
Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, or better known as Kaka, is one of the finest football players of this generation, having won the Golden Ball and FIFA World Player of the Year awards in 2007. During the 2009-2010 season, Kaka scored 8 goals in 22 appearances for Real Madrid.
Building on FIFA 10 gameplay that won 50 sports game of the year awards, FIFA 11 reinvents player authenticity – on and off the ball – for every position on the pitch with Personality+, and introduces new Pro Passing where pass accuracy is determined by a gamer’s ability on the control pad, and player skill, situation and urgency on the pitch. Plus, experience true freedom in man-to-man interactions with 360° Fight for Possession that transforms physical play from just lateral jostling to full 360° collisions.
FIFA 11 will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, WiiTM, PC, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo DSTM, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system and mobile. It will be available on the Wii in North America on Oct. 4. FIFA 11 is developed under the EA SPORTS brand by EA Canada in Burnaby, B.C. The game has not yet been rated.
