'Football Manager' will be on Nintendo Switch very soon

Football Manager, the simulator that’s all about handling a professional soccer team, is on its way to the Nintendo Switch. Engadget has confirmed the news via a person familiar with the matter at Sega, the publisher and parent company of series developer Sports Interactive.

It remains unconfirmed which version of Football Manger is getting the Switch treatment and when exactly it will go live, though we’re told it’ll be “very soon.” There are a few more hints about the new version floating around the internet, thanks in part to series director Miles Jacobson.

News broke in late March that the game was rated for Switch in South Korea, and shortly after, Jacobson tweeted the following:

(If you’re baffled by all the sardine talk, it’s in reference to a famous quote from footballer Eric Cantona, spoken right after winning his appeal against a short prison sentence for kicking a fan during a game.)

Football Manager 2018 comes in three flavors: The main game, Touch and Mobile. The Korean rating applies specifically to Football Manager Touch 2018, a version of the game that’s the same across PC, Mac, Linux and mobile platforms. It’s a slightly condensed edition, skipping the pre-match hype and media management that’s included in the core game, while emphasizing tactics and player transfers.

There’s no official word on which version is heading to Switch, but Football Manager is definitely coming to Nintendo’s latest console soon, in one form or another.
