Previously released in Japan as Pocket Soccer League: Calciobit in 2012, Nintendo has announced that Nintendo Pocket Football Club will hit the back of the net on the 3DS eShop in Europe next year.

You can presumably attempt to become the next Sir Alex Ferguson as you take full control of your own football club by customising the team's kit and emblem, lead them to the top of the league by choosing the right tactics and formation, train players to the best of their abilities and buy new team members on the transfer market.

You'll also be able to put your skills to the test as you compete against other players via local wireless, or try your luck online against other players in Europe if you really want to show off your coaching abilities.

A release date is yet to be confirmed for Nintendo Pocket Football Club, with no mention in the North American Nintendo Direct broadcast. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on the title by kicking some comments into the section below.
