Madden 22 has announced a new Nickelodeon crossover is coming to the game, and this time they're bringing Rugrats and TMNT to the virtual gridiron.

Here's everything we know about the new Nickelodeon content hitting Madden 22 and which game modes it could affect.

Madden 22 reveals Nickelodeon crossover for second-straight year

Madden 22 and Nickelodeon, as well as the NFL and Nickelodeon, have decided to once again embrace nostalgia with their partnership.

Last year, we saw this happen for the first time as Madden 21 teamed up with Spongebob to bring plenty of new content to The Yard.

CHANGE OF SCENERY: We're hoping for TMNT and Rugrats arenas

That included several new challenge types in The Yard, new gear for your custom player to wear, and a Bikini Bottom inspired arena.

Now, they appear to be channeling that same spirit as Nickelodeon prepares to present an NFL Wild Card game between the Cowboys and 49ers on Nickelodeon with their own special style of effects.

With that game coming this weekend, players won't have to wait long as all the new Nickelodeon content is landing this Friday, January 14, 2022.

When making the announcement of the Nickelodeon return, EA teased that Rugrats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would be the focus.

TMNT and Rugrats will bring new content to Madden 22

While last year's new content was entirely Spongebob themed, it looks like we're getting a pair of nostalgic arrivals in Madden 22.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Rugrats were stalwarts of Nickelodeon and television in general during the 90s, and they've seen success with plenty of reboots and revivals since then.

Now both classic franchises are hitting Madden 22, and one thing we can almost guarantee is new content for The Yard.

This will likely mean challenges, gear, and arenas that are both Rugrats and TMNT themed for The Yard.

DECKED OUT: We'll likely see more new gear hit The Yard

There's also the possibility that they'll ooze their way over to Madden 22 Ultimate Team, which didn't get much Nickelodeon love last time.

MUT 22 is at a transition point right now as Zero Chill just wrapped up and Team of the Year voting has just kicked off.

They just dropped the final Team of the Week lineups and likely have Playoffs, Pro Bowl, and Super Bowl promos waiting in the wings, but a Nickelodeon one could be very fun.

Ultimate Team promos can shine when they get creative and also bring good quality players, so there's a lot of potential here if they go all out with the Nickelodeon content in Madden 22.
