FIFA Soccer for PS Vita: Big Game Experience on the Go

Matt Prior's Avatar Posted by Producer, FIFA Soccer for PS VITA

Coming this February, EA SPORTS FIFA Soccer on PS Vita will be the first true next generation sports experience right in the palm of your hand. With console gameplay and HD graphics, FIFA Soccer delivers the largest feature set ever created by EA SPORTS for a handheld device.

The same physics-based, data driven technology that powers FIFA gameplay on PlayStation 3 drives FIFA Soccer on the Vita across eight different game modes, including authentic 11 versus 11, Be A Pro, Tournament Mode with over 50 real-world competitions, a full in-depth Career Mode, and head-to-head online. The game definitely looks and plays like the award-winning FIFA console game.

So the game definitely delivers the authenticity and quality that the FIFA franchise is known for. But the cool stuff comes in the innovations that the development team up in Vancouver has cooked up to utilize front and back multitouch screens to create an intelligent and unique gameplay experience. These Touch Screen features are optional… so you can use the traditional controls just like you’re playing FIFA on your PlayStation, but they definitely add an big element of fun and creativity to the gameplay experience.

Touch Screen Shooting delivers pin-point accuracy and removes that element of “hit and hope” from shooting. As well, Touch Screen Passing opens up the field of play for more creative, precision passing, giving players the ability to distribute the ball and make decisive passes like never before. Finally, Touch Screen Free Kick Control enables players to swipe a finger to aim and curl the shot around the wall.

Plus, players can compete with over 500 officially licensed clubs in 11 v 11 matches in authentic stadiums from around the world.


Also right in the game is the popular FIFA Career Mode, where you play or manage your way to glory through an authentic experience that mimics the real-world game. You begin as a real or created player and evolve into a player-manager and manager – or just begin at the top and enjoy a 15-season career in the real world of soccer.

What else? There’s Head-to-Head Online play, a fun Training Mode, Be A Goalkeeper Mode, and lots more.

FIFA Soccer for the PS VITA is coming in February.

    No, you’ll have to go out and buy FIFA Soccer for the PS VITA…and a PS VITA as well. ;)

Wow. This looks very good. It makes it a really hard decision whether to get the Vita or PS3 versions now. A couple questions:

– If you have the PS3 version, will you be able to save your career progress and continue it on the Vita?


– Can you compete online between the Vita and PS3 versions? This would be a very cool feature.

I like the idea of having a full-quality FIFA game on the go. Looking forward to it!

    Unfortunately we can’t offer cross-platform features or functionality between the VITA and and PS3 now….but it’s something that we know folks would like to see in the future.

Wow, this looks pretty cool.

I never got any FIFA games for my PS3 because I realized I’d hardly play them because of Uncharted and Assassin’s Creed games, but I guess I’ll get this for the Vita along with Uncharted.

Kind of a bummer but I have the vita preordered on amazon, are those really vita screenshots?
The might be the reason not to cancel my pre order.

This is gonna be great and is definitely gonna be a day 1 buy for me.
I have just 1 question about the teams: will they have the National Teams like in FIFA 12?

The sport is called Football. There’s no S in FIFA , UEFA, CONMEBOL, CAF, OFC, AFC or CONCACAF.
