Here it is, your Madden 10 box art

EA has unveiling the duo of stars that will grace this year's Madden 10 football game.

As far as video game box art goes, no game cover is more touted than the EA franchise Madden NFL football. Every year EA picks a special athlete to grace the game's cover, forever etching them into video game history. In the franchise's 21-year history, no two athletes have ever shared the cover--until now.

This year, Madden 10 will feature two players from last season's Super Bowl, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. Last year saw quarterback Brett Favre as the title's leading man, only to have been signed by the New York Jets after the final retail copy showed him in his former Green Bay Packers uniform.

Madden 10 will be released this August on every major gaming platform. We highly recommend checking out some of the latest screenshots here.

Of course we can't neglect the infamous "Madden curse," a somewhat peculiar string of coincidences that has affected the game's cover star. All that's left to wonder is what's going to happen to each of these guys this season?
