Create Your Own Pocket-Sized Dynasty in Nintendo Pocket Football Club-Released Next Week on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS

From 17th April, pit your players against other sides across Europe, and discover the Nintendo Pocket Football Club Stats website!

WINDSOR, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - April 8, 2014) - On 17th April, Nintendo eShop is set to welcome the skills of budding football tacticians from across the continent when the football management simulation Nintendo Pocket Football Club releases exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems as a downloadable title. With the chance to lead a team of pint-sized players from humble beginnings to future glories, train up your team and choose to take on fellow managers via online play, and compete to be ranked as one of the 'Top 100 Teams' in Europe on the Nintendo Pocket Football Club Stats website.

In NPFC, your first steps in building the foundations for your managerial legacy lie in creating your club's team name, kit and emblem, while early decisions at the Team Camp need to be made when discovering your best starting line-up and tactics. To improve your players' performances, Training Cards found during matches are the key to helping your players reach their full Potential, with the ability to combine cards to discover Special Combos and enhance your players' attributes even further. Only by experimenting with Training Cards, tinkering with your team selection, and getting your players plenty of game time will you start to see results pay off on the pitch.

While it is possible to play NPFC as a single-player experience, managers can compete against friends in a Local Match, receive unique new opponents via SpotPass for friendly match practice, or swap data with fellow NPFC owners through StreetPass encounters to take on their teams and secure more Training Cards in the process. If you're feeling particularly benevolent towards your fellow managers, you can even share your star performers using the Friend Market, with NPFC owners on your Nintendo 3DS friend list therefore also able to have your top performers in their side!

From around launch, the NPFC website will be supplemented by the Nintendo Pocket Football Club Stats website, your one-stop shop for seeing how your team is performing when competing in online Ranking Matches with fellow managers. In Ranking Matches, set up your team's style of play before letting them loose against players from across Europe. As well as a 'Top 100 Teams' ranking for the whole of Europe, the Nintendo Pocket Football Club Stats website also boasts a ranking feature showing the 'Top 100 Teams' from the same country as your club. Keep an eye out also for SpotPass messages delivered from launch which will invite you to participate in set tournaments - just another way to boost your managerial skills and go head to head with fellow bosses.

Create your own pocket-sized dynasty from 17th April when Nintendo Pocket Football Club releases exclusively on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS, available at a special launch offer price of £10.79 until 1st May (23:59 local time). After this date, the game will be available to purchase from Nintendo eShop for £13.49.
