Despite a press release boasting “head-to-head online matches using Nintendo Wi-Fi connection”, Nintendo World Report is claiming that in an interview with the game’s Producer, Matt Prior, online play was quashed:
“Currently, we only have local head-to-head play, but server-based online is certainly something we would be looking at in the future.”
Despite loving the 3DS console, I can’t help be concerned that only Capcom has embraced online play with the first wave of games.
Online is a major part of FIFA games, and it is very surprising if it has been omitted.
