Topic: Nintendo Pocket Football Club!

This one is something I am really hyped on - Nintendo Pocket Football Club! With its stylish retro feel, it really seems like a throwback to classic, simple'n'fun soccer management times of Premier Manager 3, The Manager, Ultimate Soccer Manager, or even Sensible World of Soccer's career mode, PES Master League or browser manager games Hattrick and Sokker (Polish game!).

For know we only have a 3 minutes Nintendo Direct teaser, an Iwata asks panel with lead developer and the release date (17th April) with a couple of screenshots on eShop. However, it truly looks promising, with some interesting online component (player sharing, global website with leaderboards and progress tracking).

Do you think it is going to be fun?

Feel free to add me to your friends list (0533-5967-6605) if you plan to try it when it's out!

I would not worry about NPFC being particularly demanding in terms of time or energy At least it doesn't seem to look like a particularly hardcore game - seems much more of a laid-back, casual affair anyone can enjoy (you get benefits no matter if you are winning or losing a match, etc.), and the tactical or formation depths appear nowhere near the level of modern soccer manager games.
However, since NPFC make you start at the lowest division, it might not be that easy or quick to achieve the World Cup title though Similarly for online-enabled tournaments (if they will be supported).

Lo and behold, Nintendo Pocket Football Club just got a new website!
http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-3DS-download-softwar...

It contains quite a lot of new information about the game, including confirmed online ranking matches and SpotPass tournaments!
Looks really sweet, hope we won't be disappointed, neither by the game nor the price

Is this confirmed, because, even though I'm not a soccer fan, I'd be disappointed to hear that. I likely would have bought it day 1.

I believe it is not confirmed yet. No word it will appear in NA, but also could not find any statement (or reason) it definitely won't make it there.

It's not confirmed, but I really hope it does sell well enough to come over to NA, even if it has to be called Soccer Club

I saw download cards for this already out at game. They didn't have a price on so I assumed they weren't being sold yet. My friend understandably was disappointed that Pullblox was sold out though. Fallblox sucks.

He means the download cards for specific games you can find in stores.

Finally we know the price http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/04/3ds_eshop_exclusive_...

Less than 11 pounds on its release window really sounds reasonable from my perspective - was afraid something around 20, which would be pricey for this title I think.

Also, the review is now online!

Really nice idea BTW the price is reduced right at the release date - smart move to gather most people on board as soon as possible, which is important for its online components I guess.
