FIFA 08 kicks off across platforms

This year's version of the popular football game will be coming to a multitude of formats--and the covers will feature Ronaldinho.


It may not come as a great surprise after FIFA 07 was named the best-selling title of 2006 that FIFA 08 has been confirmed by EA Sports. The latest game in the series will be coming worldwide this autumn to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, and mobile phones.

Barcelona midfielder Ronaldinho will feature on the front of FIFA boxes for the third time in a row, alongside various other players across Europe. Miroslav Klose of Werder Bremen will also be on packaging in Germany, Sergio Ramos of Real Madrid in Spain, Andreas Ivanschitz of Panathinaikos FC in Austria, and Tranquillo Barnetta of Bayer Leverkusen in Switzerland. Florent Malouda of Olympique Lyonnais and Frank Ribery of Olympique Marseille will appear alongside Ronaldinho on the cover of the game in France. His cover mates for the UK and US will be announced next month.

The listed stars will also be motion captured for the game, which will be developed by EA Canada in Vancouver.
