Weirdness: Football Manager Fans Can Now Show Off in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Get your special t-shirt design here

The Football Manager franchise is like a dark secret for some gamers, an absorbing game that destroys social lives and relationships on an annual basis. There's little time for minor things such as meals and fresh air when you need to fine-tune the training regimen of your star striker. Although, of course, Animal Crossing: New Leaf has similar powers of dominating our time.

Now, in a slightly terrifying coming together of the two, you can show your allegiance and love of Football Manager by wearing a rather fashionable t-shirt in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Draw the curtains, get the local take-away on speed dial, you may never go outside again.

The Football Manager team has designed the t-shirt, pictured above, and distributed the QR code below. All you need to do is scan the code at Sable's sewing machine; you could also, in theory, use the design for wallpapers and other shenanigans. Enjoy!

That pretty much says that the Football Manager team also plays AC:NL. How do they have time to eat?!

that's weird considering a football manager game has never appeared on a Nintendo Console.... maybe its an indication its coming to the Wii U, I am one of gamepad's biggest critics but football manager is one game that could really justify the gamepad



Detective_TeeJay said:

Um, is this about a certain football manager, or a company called Football Manager, or football managers in general? I'm a little confused here.



DualWielding said:

could a football manager title be the third secret game in the Nintendo-Sega partnership?, it's only published and not developed by Sega though and a Vita version has recently be announced

@ferthepoet The Wii U gamepad would be fantastic for playing FM, plus it would be a great alternative to PES and FIFA. The Wii U needs some decent football action and FM would be a perfect fit..

@bezerker99 Good luck selling "soccer manager" in Europe

I don't think the full blown Football Manager experience will ever work on a console. There's too much info displayed on the screen to make it really viable for viewing on a TV, but the Gamepad would be great for a version like the Vita is getting. It's pretty much the Classic mode introduced last year, and has cloud saves that are compatible with you PC/Mac game, so wherever you are, you can keep playing the same save.

I meant the Football manager/Championship manager series developed by SI I just find odd that they'll make a t-shirt for animal crossing if they haven't ever worked in a Nintendo Console before



Quickman said:

@Peach64 Obviously you would have to make a few changes but it would work very well on the Wii U, plus you could maybe add Mii support for the player mugshots and Miiverse features, would be awesome..

@SMEXIZELDAMAN Why do americans have to try to ruin everything?

i am very much aware its a british site, ive been here 3+ years. i havent made any comments about any country, yet others here have. i thought football meant football, thats all.

The gamepad would be amazing for all the stats and tactical changes during matches.

Funny FM story: guy I know at work, his flatmate got his team to the FA Cup final and wore a suit for the game

The FM crowd are hardcore!

Its because the studio director Miles Jacobson (and probably a lot of other devs there) plays Animal Crossing a lot in his spare time.

Cool, it would be nice if some other developers released some "official" QR-Codes for Animal Crossing too.
