It's taken a little while - and the Major League Soccer season is still a couple of months away - but EnjoyUp Games has now confirmed a North American release date for Soccer Up Online, which is Football Up Online in Europe. It'll arrive in this week's update (15th January) with a price tag of $3.99.
Although sold separately from Soccer Up 3D, there are obvious overlaps with this new release. Alongside tweaks to gameplay the main addition is online multiplayer, expanding on the local-only original - unfortunately we weren't fans in our Football Up Online review, being unimpressed with the gameplay and laggy performance of the online component.
Let us know whether you're tempted to give this a shot, in any case, while below is a freshly released trailer.
