FIFA Street announced
EA has announced a new spin-off FIFA game to be published under the EA Sports Big brand, named FIFA Street. Set for release next year for the GameCube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2, the game will be developed by a team at EA Canada. It will feature leading international soccer players in either 4 on 4 or 1 on 1 matches.
“FIFA Street is a highly anticipated combination of arcade action blended with the culture of freestyle street soccer,” said senior producer Wil Mozell. “By removing the rules from the simulation soccer experience, FIFA Street exposes the heart of the world’s beautiful game, on-the-ball flare, and individual style.”
The idea of football at grass roots level has been tried before. Acclaim’s Urban Freestyle Soccer centers around exactly the same idea, while This Is Football has a similar, jumpers-for-goalposts mode. Check back for more news on FIFA Street soon.
