EA Mobile has released first details and screenshots of the iPhone and iPod touch iteration of Madden NFL 11.

This year's instalment comes with a noticeable graphical update that seizes on the iPhone 4 Retina display and generally takes the visual detail up a notch.

Expanded hot routes are promised, ensuring that you can modify plays on both offence and defence by tracing new routes with a finger on the touchscreen.

Other features include "GameFlow," which EA Mobile says will enable more time on the field; however, the publisher neglects to explain just how this feature works.

The question on our minds is whether online multiplayer will be offered. As solid as last year's instalment was, wi-fi multiplayer was the big catch.

Joining the iPhone and iPod touch version of Madden NFL 11 will be a high-definition iPad version. No screenshots or details about potential differences on iPad were provided.

Madden NFL 11 will be available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad this autumn at a speculated price of $9.99/£5.99.
