Shift 2: Unleashed Android, thumbnail 1
EA Mobile has confirmed that new entries of its well-loved Need for Speed and Madden franchises will be heading to smartphones next month.

Shift 2: Unleashed (not technically bearing the Need for Speed banner, but they’re not fooling us) will be only available on iPhone and iPod touch, and features 40 of ‘the hottest cars’, 20 ‘Quick Race Trials’, and 40 different events to take part in.

It also features the Pagani Huayra, car fiends, which is as fast to drive as it is difficult to spell on a Friday night when you’re the last one in the office.

Strangely, the press release suggests that it will be using EA’s new Origin service for leaderboards, rather than Game Center, with the opportunity to win ‘NFS cash’ in various cups and competitions.

We've contacted EA in regards to whether there will be any multiplayer in this edition.

Madden 12, on the other hand, looks set to continue the franchise's tradition of making American Football look good fun, even for people who think a quarterback is a type of measurement.

This new multiformat version features improved graphics, animations, and all the modes that made it into the previous years’ iteration on iPhone/iPad. If you’re lucky/rich enough to own an iPad 2, you’ll also get the benefit of even more eye candy.

Madden 12 will launch on iPhone, iPad, and Android, while Shift 2: Unleashed will only be available on iPhone (at least for now). Both games are scheduled for release next month.

Cheers, I'm still awaiting confirmation of the date from EA UK in case it's different. I'll update when I know for sure.

Sharp-eyes, guys. I tip my hat to you all!

That's what EA has told us. I don't believe it will be just for the iPhone though, that's why I've added "(at least for now)". I expect the iPad version will appear a month after the iPhone release.

Why do you say Shift 2 will release only on iPhone when on the official site it shows the game being played on a iPad?
