Finally, after months and months of questions about whether Football Manager will come to the apple devices that are rapidly become one of the most advanced pieces of techology today – Football Manager Handheld is being released sometime tommorow.. The price of the game will be £6.99 and of course I will be buying it, which means I can finally play Football Manager on the go 🙂 I will be reviewing it and posting it up here at ATB as soon as I get it and try it out so you can get a good idea of what it is like.
Anyways, here was the official post by Miles Jacobson on the SIGames forums earliar today.
Over the last few months, the most asked question of me on Twitter and Facebook has been “when is Football Manager coming to iPhone/iPod”, and I’ve confidently pointed out that it wasn’t coming.
When people have asked “when is Football Manager Handheld coming to iPhone/iPod” I’ve been very quiet.
I am beyond excited to be able to announce today that FMH2010 is coming to iPhone and iPod touch. And even more excited to be able to announce that what has been our best kept secret ever, it’s coming out in the next 48 hours!
We don’t know exactly when it will be available in the apps store, although we’ve set a midnight local time release for tonight – it takes a while for all servers to propogate though, hence me saying it’ll be live in the next 48 hours.
We are expecting some reviews today from journalists who received ridiculously limited edition Football Manager Handheld iPod Touches (engraved by the people who engrave the FA Cup!) with the game pre-installed on it, which has been the only way anyone outside of SI and SEGA has been able to see the game. I will put links to the reviews when they are available. There will also be a competition to win one of these devices in the coming weeks!
I will also add to this post later with feature information and some screenshots.
Meanwhile, if any of you are in Australia, I reckon you’ll be the first people getting the game due to time differences, so please let us know if/when you see it in the app store!
