‘NFL Blitz’ is back, depicting a gentler, less violent NFL

Twenty-five years after the popular series launched, and 10 years after its last edition came out, “NFL Blitz” is returning in the arcade format that made it famous. Arcade1Up, a retro arcade company, announced that remastered versions of the series’ first three games will be released this fall, featuring retired star players including Jerry Rice, Deion Sanders, Dan Marino, Brett Favre and Jerome Bettis.
