Midway Games announced yesterday that Frank Caliendo, host of Frank TV and known for his impressions of legendary football broadcaster John Madden, President George W. Bush and Al Pacino, and actor and comedian Jay Mohr, have been recruited to join Lawrence Taylor in the upcoming release of Blitz: The League II. The voice talent and comedic skills of both Caliendo and Mohr will help bring to life the game’s fictional football league that has been created by Peter Egan, scriptwriter for ESPN’s edgy Playmakers series.
As the sequel to the more than one million unit selling and award-winning football experience, Blitz: The League II continues the franchise legacy as the ultimate alternative to the watered-down, licensed competition. In addition to an all-new story mode penned by Peter Egan (from ESPN’s Playmakers), Blitz: The League II features include precision-aim tackles, player-controlled touchdown celebrations and an enhanced on-the-field Clash Mode. Football legend Lawrence Taylor returns as the game’s cover-athlete and star linebacker for the New York Nightmare, Quentin Sands, along with a star-studded supporting cast.
