This may not be the first FIFA game for a portable console, but EA says it’s the biggest and most complex handheld one it’s ever made.
The football game includes all the eight main modes from its home console cousins, including a career mode, as well as tournaments, Be a Pro, Be a Goalkeeper and head-to-head online modes.
There are 50 real-world competitions to take part in, 500 licensed football clubs and thousands of players on hand.
Players can swipe Vita’s front screen to pass the ball, while the back touch pad can be used to shoot. Users can also drag their finger across the screen when taking a free kick to curve the ball around the wall and into the net.
“FIFA is the best selling sports franchise of all time so being able to immerse yourself in FIFA anywhere you go, and at anytime, is a hugely exciting prospect,” FIFA Football’s producer Matt Prior tells MCV.
