As promised earlier this week, new developer AE Games has revealed their first title for release on the Wii U. Mad Men Football is described as a retro-style American football game with a historic twist, and is being developed specifically with the Wii U in mind.

The game takes historical figures and pits them against one another in a game of gridiron. For example, AE Games envisages:

Instead of George Washington firing shots at his enemies’ heads, he’ll be firing passes over their heads.

The developer is self-funding the project and hopes to release the game on the Nintendo eShop this year in the US.
