Nintendo Switch

It has been rumoured, but it still came as a bit of a surprise today as Sega announced and launched Football Manager Touch for Nintendo Switch.

You can purchase the game via the eShop now for €34.99/£29.99 on the European eShop.

The development support for ARMS is certainly encouraging for its players, and it seems to be a staple for Nintendo Switch games so far.

Football Manager is the most realistic, in-depth and immersive football management simulation in the world.

As manager, players will provide team talks, make substitutions and provide play instructions. The game is available to download now and can be played both on a television screen as well as using the Switch as a handheld on the go.

This will also be the first time FM's 3D match engine has been playable on a home console.

It is the first time the series has been seen on a console since it featured on the Xbox 360 between 2005 and 2007.

So, how does Football Manager Touch 2018 compare to the PC version of Football Manager 2018?

'This is a milestone release for Football Manager, ' commented Miles Jacobson, Studio Director of Sports Interactive.
