Today Atari announced Backyard Football '10 for the Xbox 360, PS2 and Wii... stating that it will ship in October, 2009.

Backyard Football '10, featuring NFL players as kids, combines realistic NFL plays and strategies with wild arcade style power moves and comical scenarios so gamers of all ages can learn the fundamentals of football while having fun.

Multiple levels make it easy enough for beginners, yet challenging enough for even die-hard football fans.

To quote: "Featuring NFL players as kids gives youth gamers a unique and friendly environment to interact with their favorite NFL stars, while providing easy game-play for consumers of all ages" said Keith Gordon, Vice President of Licensing, NFL PLAYERS. "We're very happy about what Backyard Football '10 has to offer."

In addition to new co-op, 2 vs. 2 multi-player action, Backyard Football '10 features enhanced controls, new unlockables, insane power ups, custom teams and characters, multiple play modes (single player, season play, tournament and all-pro) as well as a hall of fame from Backyard Football '09.

It'll be priced at $39.99 for the Xbox 360, $29.99 for the Wii and at $19.99 for the PS2; seems like there may be no DS version this year. Atari will be the publishers while Humongous Inc. will be handling dev duties as always.
