EA Sports unveil FIFA 12 commentary teams
EA Sports have today announced that well-respected broadcaster and former England forward Alan Smith will join Martin Tyler as part of the main English commentary team for FIFA 12.
This means that, for the first time ever, FIFA 12 will feature two English broadcast teams, that will encompass over 10,000 lines of commentary. The second commentary team, featuring Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend, will call tournament matches, and fans will also have the option to customize the audio to their preferred commentators for any matches.
“Alan will bring a fresh, new perspective and insight to FIFA 12, working alongside the trusted and well-known voice of Martin Tyler,” said David Rutter, Senior Producer of FIFA 12. “As one of the top-tier broadcasters on the UK football scene, he brings enormous knowledge and expert analysis to the game so that we can deliver the most authentic FIFA experience this year.”
“The natural chemistry that Martin and I have developed working live matches for TV has transferred very well to the virtual broadcast booth,” Alan Smith added. “I’m really looking forward to FIFA fans hearing our work this fall as we bring all the match day emotion and excitement to this year’s game.”
FIFA 12 is due to release across North America on September 27th, and September 30th worldwide.
