Fan updates NFL Blitz GameCube rosters for 2015

Monday January 18th, 2016

An industrious video game and NFL fan has decided to give the 2002 GameCube version of the beloved NFL Blitz series a 2015 update, putting in the current rosters for each team in the league.

Kotaku reports that the update cannot account for things like the 2015 schedule or players’s skin color, but does give a look at what the high-octane franchise would look like paired with today’s NFL.

• Quiz: Are you Tom Brady or Peyton Manning?

While gamers would need to download a GameCube emulator for PC to run the game with its contemporary rosters, anyone who has ever played the original is rightly drooling at the idea of a Blitz-ified version of Cam Newton right now.
