Its release comes every Fall and we know die-hard Madden fanboys sit on the edge of their leather sofas in anticipation for the announcement of the game's official release date. So, here it is. This August 12th, Madden NFL 09 will tackle North American retailers in two flavors. The standard edition and a special Madden NFL 09 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition that comes packed with full versions of both Madden NFL 09 and NFL Head Coach 09 as well as some exclusive video clips, blah, blah, blah. Next up ... waiting to see which player will be treated to Madden's box art curse. So exciting!
