Madden 09, FaceBreaker Demos Go Live

The FaceBreaker demo, weighing in at a hefty 955MB, features five fighters — main characters Ice, Sparrow and Steve and “celeb” fighters Peter Moore and Kim Kardashian — and two arenas — cave and trailer park — to pummel away with in practice or a 1-round bout. The game’s create-a-boxer and Photo Game Face are available in limited form as well. EA also sent along 10 new FaceBreaker screens to accompany the demo news. Hit the jump for the gallery.
