EA has learned to laugh at its mistakes — at least, the little ones

Sports games often produce some pretty hilarious glitches, perhaps none more so than the "Tiny Titan" bug in Madden NFL 15 that was discovered earlier this week. Now, the game's developers at EA Tiburon are taking it in stride, poking fun at their innocuous mistake with a Madden Ultimate Team challenge that brings back the lil' guy.

The issue resulted from a data error. Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey is listed at a height of 6 feet 2 inches, but due to a typo, appeared in the game as 1 foot 2 inches tall. Madden 15 players discovered the Tiny Titan in a Madden Ultimate Team challenge.

Tiburon quickly fixed the issue, and followed up today with a new Ultimate Team challenge featuring the Tiny Titan — or Tiny Brown, in this case. This weekend, Madden 15 players can log in to Ultimate Team and play against the Browns and a diminutive Kirksey in his own little weekly challenge. You can check out a Vine (via Operation Sports' Steve Noah) of the Tiny Titan in Madden 15 Ultimate Team below, and feel free to share your own clips of your time with the Tiny Titan in the comments.
