Sports Interactive has confirmed that the PS Vita version of Football Manager Classic 2014 is releasing on April 11th, around a month before the end of the current football season. The PS Vita version of FMC is a port of the PC game released last year and it’s first handheld outing.
Sports Interactive’s Miles Jacobson spoke about the upcoming release.
It’s great to finally be able to release FMC Vita. 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.”
As the current season is coming to an end shortly after the game is released, it’s unclear if an update for the game will be released to update the squads to match the new season.
