Sportsmanship is Frowned Upon

First Team Captain Videos Also Released for Anticipated Sequel

Midway today released a new sizzle trailer and team captain videos for the upcoming release of Blitz: The League II. Touchdown celebrations are common practice these days in football; excessiveness usually leads to a flag and a 15-yard penalty. Needless to say, this doesn't really affect the showboats in Blitz: The League II from getting jiggy, while rubbing success in the face of opponents. Spikes and goal post dunks are a thing of the past for these end zone entertainers.

***AGE GATE REQUIRED TO POST VIDEOS

In addition to the End Zone Celebration trailer, Midway has also released the first round of team captain videos for Blitz: The League II. First up will be the players that lead the Baltimore Bearcats, Denver Grizzlies, Kansas City Crossfire, Chicago Marauders, New York Nightmare, Vancouver Beavers, Atlanta 404, Houston Riders and New England Regulars. These players lead by example on the field, but not necessarily off of it.

***AGE GATE REQUIRED TO POST VIDEOS

On October 13, Blitz: The League II is slated to hit store shelves for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game system and entertainment system from Microsoft.
