'MADDEN NFL '94' SET TO KICK-OFF AT 20,000 STOREFRONTS NOV. 19

 SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- EA SPORTS(TM) will have a record-breaking sales day when 20,000 leading North American retailers simultaneously kick-off "Madden Football Friday" on Nov. 19. And in another first, retailers will offer customers "Madden NFL '94" on both Sega Genesis and Super NES home entertainment systems.
 "John Madden Football(TM)," the most popular 16-bit sports video game of all time, has already sold over 2 million units -- and plans are in place for the newest version of the game, "Madden NFL '94," to ship in excess of 1 million units by the end of the holiday season. (This optimism stems in large part from the additional 5,000 retailers who joined the launch after hearing very favorable reports on the exciting features of the new game.)
 For the first time, gamers can now play "Madden NFL '94" with the new 4 WAY PLAY(TM) Genesis adapter and the Super Multitap(TM) 5-player adapter for the Super NES. The multi-player phenomenon has recently enhanced tournament play for thousands of gamers.
 "Madden NFL '94" is now endorsed by the NFL, thus giving gamers the luxury of playing a full season with the league's 28 pro teams (including the Cowboys, the Forty-Niners, the Bills and the Raiders) and taking their favorite team through the playoffs and into the Super Bowl(R). Authentic helmets and logos are just like those seen on TV.
 "Madden NFL '94" more than doubles the number of teams previously available. The '94 version features 80 teams, including 38 Super Bowl squads since 1966, and 12 All-Star "franchise teams" since 1950. There are even two All-Madden teams.
 Once again, all-new commentary from former championship Raider coach, co-designer and Emmy award-winner John Madden can be heard throughout the game on critical plays.
 In the Sega Genesis version, a new perspective gets gamers closer to the field, gives them bigger players, and features pancake hits that put ball-carriers flat on their backs. In the Super NES version, a 360-degree camera lets gamers review every angle of any play. Also, any player on the field can be isolated for a more accurate breakdown.
 -- Sega Genesis: $59.95
 -- Super NES: $59.95
