Sports Interactive has confirmed that Football Manager Classic 2014 is releasing on April 11th for Vita, around a month before the end of the current 2013/2014 football season. This Vita version of Football Manager will be the first handheld port of the game that will include the 3D match engine, and will also be cross platform. It will definitely by interesting to see how the game plays on the handheld. Sports Interactive’s Miles Jacobson spoke about the upcoming release.
It’s great to finally be able to release FMC Vita. This game has been the most technically challenging that we’ve ever worked on – we’ve essentially fit a PC game that needs loads of memory, a mouse and a keyboard into Sony’s wonderful handheld with a touch screen – and the help we’ve had from all of our partners has been wonderful. To be able to take your home computer save onto the road adds a huge amount to the Football Manager experience.”
There’s no confirmation as of yet of whether there will be an update for the new season for this version of the game, or whether there will be a new release.
