Sports Interactive & SEGA Europe Ltd. have today released Football Manager Handheld 2012 on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. After the success of Football Manager Handheld 2011, the development team have listened to feedback from fans and taken the experience to a whole new level.
With a host of new features, Football Manager Handheld 2012 aims to keep its position as the most realistic and played football management simulation game in the world, and includes the introduction of a new game mode, “Challenge Mode”, for the first time in the Football Manager series. Football Manager Handheld 2012‘s new Challenge Mode allows you to feel the pressure of being a manager in some familiar short-term situations that epitomise being a boss. You’ll go through relegation battles, injury nightmares, and dealing with an unhappy squad. In these quick-to-play challenges you can experience the situations that make or break real-life bosses. It’s a whole new way of playing Football Management games.
Of course the full game mode is still available, with a host of new features for fans, including an improved user interface and more interactive news. There is also the ability to easily identify the three key players in other squads via indicators and the addition of bragging rights via Facebook in the games social networking options.
“We’re delighted to be able to finally announce & release FMHi2012″ said Miles Jacobson, Studio Director at Sports Interactive. “Keeping the Challenge mode secret has been a challenge in itself but with its inclusion, and all the other new additions, we believe that the game will be another huge hit on the app store and can’t wait to see the reaction to the game.”
