The release date for Football Manager Classic 2014 has been announced today.
Sports Interactive and SEGA Europe revealed that the game will be released on Friday, April 11th for PlayStation Vita.
Originally designed as a “slimmed down” game mode for Football Manager 2013, the mobile game will feature Football Manager’s acclaimed 3D match engine.
“It’s great to finally be able to release [Football Manager Classic on] Vita,” said Miles Jacobson, Studio Director at Sports Inteactive.
“This game has been the most technically challenging that we’ve ever worked on – we’ve essentially fit a PC game that needs loads of memory, a mouse and a keyboard into Sony’s wonderful handheld with a touch screen – and the help we’ve had from all of our partners has been wonderful.
“To be able to take your home computer save onto the road adds a huge amount to the Football Manager experience.”
Shahid Ahmad, Senior Business Development Manager of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, also said: “For years, the dream of many Football Manager fans has been to be able to enjoy a full version of their favourite game wherever they are.”
“Sports Interactive and SEGA have realised that dream on the PS Vita, and we at PlayStation are delighted with their ground-breaking results.”
Football Manager Classic 2014 will be available as both a physical release and a digital download through the PSN store.
