Do you fancy simpler, arcade football? Watch Sociable Soccer next year

The world of football video games is clearly dominated by the commercially unrivaled FIFA series, whose new year means a perfect entry into the new generation of consoles (unless you are playing on a PC). This means that competition in the form of eFootball remains far in the dust, and even a newcomer in the form of UFL will have to do something to bite into at least a piece of the cake that he is currently hunting for at EA Sports.

Well, if this giant can’t compete in the mainstream, why not try it differently? Why not mess with all the possible licenses, photorealistic graphics, perfect animations and stadiums replicated to the last brick, why not just create a straight football arcade where you don’t have to worry about any tactics?

It is in this potential hole in the market that Sociable Soccer, the successor to the legendary Sensible Soccer from the early 1990s, enters. Even the same developer, Jon Hare, is responsible for it. And fast, unadulterated football will finally soon look among a wider range of players.

So far, you have only been able to play Sociable Soccer on Apple devices through the Apple Arcade service, but in the second quarter of next year it will also be available on computers, Switches and consoles from Sony and Microsoft, both new and old generations (although in list is somewhat suspiciously missing from the Xbox One). Compared to the mobile one, it will be an improved version, including better graphics, animations, artificial intelligence and, of course, a list.

I admit that for me personally, the era of arcade beats has passed and I would rather be enchanted by either the spectacular theater of the FIFA series or the elaborate eFootball / PES playability by Konami. But if you don’t give a lot of football, or you would like to bury yourself virtually with a parent who last played Sensible Soccer on the Amiga, Jon Hare will provide you with a great way to fulfill such desires next year.
