I'm Most Excited About A Nintendo Game Nobody Has Heard Of

I don't mean that in a hipster sense. I mean it in a sense that this is a game Nintendo hasn't marketed as strongly as perhaps it could have. At least to me.

This isn't a Zelda game. Isn't a Mario game. There's no Yoshi, no Luigi, no Donkey Kong. Yet unless you're from Japan or are a very dedicated European fan, you've probably never heard of Nintendo Pocket Football Club.

It is, to break it down, Football Manager meets Nintendo. You create a team, you manage that team as it rises through the ranks, you buy and sell players, you improve the players you've got. Only, instead of coming wrapped in the presentation of a glorified spreadsheet, it's got this cutie little art style. The combination of which pushes all my buttons, all at once.

It's coming to Europe's 3DS eShop in April.


    I hate my DS after finishing X and Y but I really want this hahaha

    Yeah, this was actually the highlight of the Nintendo Direct for me.

    If this is the most exciting thing Nintendo has to offer in the coming months, this is just sad

    Wow... You haven't heard of it? It's been in a couple of Nintendo Directs.

    The wonderful Kairosoft have a game almost identical, and its free too. Search for pocket league story on your android/iWhatever, you won't be disappointed.

    It sounds like Soccer and Pokemon made a baby.
