Football Manager Touch launches on Switch today

Football Manager will make its debut on Nintendo Switch today, publisher Sega has confirmed.

Takahashi is, as many will point out, merely stating the obvious; companies like Nintendo are constantly working on new hardware, and systems like the Switch will have been in the works for many years before release.

Those who already own and pre-ordered Football Manager 2018 may want to hold off, however, as all Steam pre-orders came with a free copy of Football Manager Touch 2018 back in October.

Though quite frankly, why you're playing it on the TV is beyond us; the portable nature of the Switch, combined with the jam-it-straight-into-your-veins appeal of Football Manager, means it's ideal for playing on the go.

Manticore: Galaxy on Fire will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on April 19th, priced at £17.99. This means you can play using both control methods on the go, and doesn't effectively rule people out from playing in docked mode on their telly, either. This marks the first time the 3D engine has been playable on a home console.

SEGA has also included the 3D Match Engine feature in the Switch version.

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

"This is a milestone release for Football Manager", says Sports Interactive's Studio Director, Miles Jacobson.

Bargaining: A wealth of clauses and transfer options arm you with more ways than ever to finalize the deal.
