FIFA Street is making a return. Electronic Arts announced its Vancouver studio is developing a reboot of the street soccer series. Inspired by street soccer styles and stars, the game will run on the same engine as FIFA 12.
“This is the first time our award-winning FIFA development team is creating a street soccer game, and we are going to deliver a level of authenticity never before seen in this genre, along with amazing gameplay,” said Matt Bilbey, Vice President and GM of Soccer, EA SPORTS. “FIFA Street will appeal to new fans that are looking for a unique, fun soccer experience, and long-time FIFA fans looking for an authentic street soccer experience with the level of quality that they know and love from the FIFA franchise.”
Players will utilize “aerial skills to maneuver past opponents, an all-new sophisticated one-touch passing system for quick, precision passes, and over 50 never-before-experienced skill moves.” You’ll play with and against stars of the world’s most popular soccer clubs across 35 locations from London to Rio to Barcelona. The game promises to “replication” the “unique street soccer style.” A “host of modes and online features” to be revealed in the coming months are also promised.
It’s out in early 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Check out the debut trailer below.
