Nintendo Pocket Football Club is a Nintendo eShop only football management game developed by ParityBit and published by Nintendo for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS. The game has been out for about a week now and is pretty good.
From nintendo.co.uk: “As manager, train up your players and choose your tactics wisely to make the most of their abilities. Once you’re satisfied, send your team forth and watch your decisions play out in matches packed with action – but don’t be afraid to alter your approach if it all starts to unravel before your eyes. Delve deep and show plenty of skill on the sidelines and you could lead them all the way to the glorious treble of the Pro League 1, the Federation Cup and the European Challenge Cup. With enough work, you could even bring the World Club Classic back home”.
Nintendo Pocket Football Club features Local Play and Nintendo Network which allows you to exchange your teams and players with others via StreetPass and SpotPass.

There are also some tournaments coming up soon: “The Welcome Cup tournament will kick off shortly after launch on 16/05/2014 and run until 01/06/2014. To help you prepare, get ready to meet a number of international teams via SpotPass over the coming months, too, and from around launch you’ll be able to track your stats and research your rivals on the dedicated Nintendo Pocket Football Club Stats page.”
I have been playing Nintendo Pocket Football Club a lot lately and its a lot of fun for a few hours at a time. The game is pretty simple to learn but doesn’t mean its easy. The game is basically a remake of ParityBits Japan only 2006 Game Boy Advance game which was called Calcio Bit. I am glad it’s finally available for more people to play and is a perfect game to accompany the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
I will be doing some guides for Nintendo Pocket Football Club and giving My Scrambled Thoughts on the game soon but if you are a fan of football, Sensible Soccer and management games there is enough content in Nintendo Pocket Football Club to keep you entertained for regular short bursts of time.
