Yes, two Minneapolis Miracle connected stories in one day. In case anyone hasn’t noticed, there isn’t a hell of a lot else going on right now.
We’re getting to the time of year where the latest installment of Madden NFL is going to be available for all of the major video gaming systems. Every year, the designers tweak and add things, and it appears that each team is going to have a piece of Minnesota Vikings history in their playbooks.
According to Madden School, a site dedicated to all things Madden, they have confirmed that one of the new Hail Mary plays in this year’s version of the game is going to mirror the play that gave us the Minneapolis Miracle.
Anthony White is one of the designers that work at Electronic Arts, so if anyone would know, it would be him.
The play is called “Hail Mary - Shot Save Clock,” and will be a part of every team’s playbook in Madden 20.
Now, it’s been a while since I picked up a copy of any of the Madden NFL games. I know that they used to have a mode where they put the player in famous NFL scenarios and gave them the opportunity to either replicate the results or change the outcome, and I think that the Minneapolis Miracle scenario would be a great addition to such a mode. Like I said, I don’t know if they have that mode any more. Hopefully they do.
Madden NFL 20 is scheduled to be released on 2 August. Are any of our gamers out there going to pick it up?
