Looking for a football fix that's not FIFA or PES? Then why not hold out for the arcade-style game Sociable Soccer - which is currently scheduled for a Nintendo Switch release on 17th April 2022.

Yes, that's right, "Sociable Soccer" - the spiritual successor to the classic Sensible Soccer series - has done a deal with consoles, including Nintendo's hybrid system. Up until now, it's been an Apple Arcade exclusive.

Kiss Publishing says the initial PC/console version of the game will be branded Sociable Soccer '22. Although it's a follow-up, this will be the "full vision" of everything developer Tower Studios wants to do, according to Sensible Soccer creator, Joe Hare:

"Obviously graphically, we can push things further, and also there is a whole bunch of features we want to put into the game, which we can now launch with on the PC/console side. So, it’s an exciting time."

There'll be ongoing support for the new versions of the game, too:

“We’re in the rolling feast of the development world these days, so there are features that we’ll get in for the version in April, and then there will be more features as we go along, rolling out every six months or so... Effectively, we’re almost branching development into the next generation of engine.”

“We’ve now put the final piece in the jigsaw, which is the PC/console to go with the mobile publishing that we had.”
