EA Previews NBA Live, Need for Speed Shift, Surviving High School for iPhone

Electronic Arts on Wednesday announced details about three new games coming to the iPhone this fall: NBA Live, Need for Speed Shift, and Surviving High School. Pricing, system requirements, and specific release dates were not made available.

NBA Live is the mobile version of the popular console and computer game. No information was given beyond a trio of screenshots, but players can assume that all of the NBA teams will be included, along with real players, the ability to set strategy, and more.

The next entry in the Need for Speed series promises 28 street and pro racing events in Chicago, London, and Tokyo, with 20 cars to choose from and the ability to take on others head-to-head via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. As in previous Need for Speed games, players will be able to upgrade their cars' top speed, handling, acceleration, and nitrous as well as customize their looks.

Finally, Surviving High School lets players relive what may have been the best or worst time of their lives, guiding their characters through a variety of situations as they make choices that lead to becoming the most popular kid in school, an outcast, a jock, a nerd, and more. Surviving High School promises mini-games and the ability to use iPhone OS 3.0's in-game purchasing option to buy new episodes in the storyline as they're released.
