Twenty years seems to be a good enough time to start selling back nostalgia to gamers. We've seen some old-school EA Sports 16-bit designs on T-shirts and other apparel, sold in the stores the label has opened at airports in Charlotte, N.C. and Salt Lake City. Looks like they're interested in putting Madden, NHL and NBA Live sprites on cell phone cases now.
Chris Erb, the vice president of brand marketing for EA Sports, recently tweeted that snapshot of some prototype smartphone cases. Clockwise from bottom, that looks like old versions of Madden, NHL, FIFA and NBA Live.
Alas, no baseball. If there are any clues as to MVP Baseball's return, we won't find them here.
