In August, we were surprised by the news that Soccer Story existed. A pixel art sports RPG with 50% of its title dedicated to the word ‘Story’ which is not something to do with Sidebar Games’ Golf Story or its highly anticipated sequel Sports Story? It is surely not possible!
Well, it turns out it can, and it landed itself a Switch release date of November 29, 2022 – as if there wouldn’t be enough football at that time.
No More Robots and Panic Barn have released the trailer above to give some insight into the game’s story – a surprisingly ambitious plot about reuniting a broken world through the power of football is not what we initially expected from the cute sports game. The retro-inspired visuals certainly share some similarities to the aforementioned sports-focused RPG stories, though there are enough 3D elements in the environments to ensure this isn’t a direct copy.
For even more information on what to expect from Soccer Story, check out the following from No More Monsters:
– Drop your soccer ball and play anywhere! The world is full of objectives, puzzles and secrets – it’s up to you to find them!
– Play a single-player story full of quirky characters, quests, rogue referees, and wacky soccer-adjacent sports
– Build your football career and compete against the fiercest football teams like literal sharks, toddlers, pensioners and ninjas
– Save football and restore peace and harmony to the world
– Grab a friend for a four-player local multiplayer match mode with a full roster of teams and animal captains
– FISHING MINI-GAME
Without an eShop page already established, we don’t know what price we can expect Soccer Story when it launches later this month. But with Sports Story releasing in December, you know it’s going to be a winter of BLANK Story RPG fun.
