If you've been waiting for the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer, then good news, because Sociable Soccer 24 is finally heading to the Switch on 7th June 2024. That's next week!

Boasting over 12,000 licensed players, Sociable Soccer's foundation is built upon simple-to-play yet hard-to-master gameplay mechanics, offering up a boatload of accessibility if you happen to find the likes of EA Sports FC a bit overwhelming.

In a fun little throwback to the Sensible Soccer franchise, the game's cover star has also been revealed to be Stefano Sensi, the Italian footballer best known for his time with Inter Milan.

Here's what Jon Hare, Creative Director and creator of the Sensible Soccer franchise, had to say:

“Sensible Soccer still means so much to a great many gamers, and we thought it was high time to bring a little Sensi to Sociable Soccer 24 too! We are delighted to have signed a skilful and enigmatic player like Stefano as the official ambassador for the game, I am sure he will make our fans smile!”

It's worth mentioning too that the upcoming launch on Switch is a timed exclusive. No date has been revealed, but Xbox and PlayStation versions will follow at some point later down the road. A nice little win for Switch owners, then!
