New Star Soccer Manager is the follow-up to the superb New Star Soccer – although it’s not a sequel to that game.
Developer Simon Read’s new game shares the DNA of New Star Soccer, and it’s due out on iOS and Android later this summer – a time when we’ll hopefully still be celebrating England’s glorious victory in the World Cup. That’s right, I said it. FOOTBALL’S COMING HOME!
New Star Soccer Manager is, as you’d expect from the name of the game, a football management sim that also has arcade action. You manage New Star FC, buying and selling players, making deals with sponsors, upgrading the club and managing finances.
You also take control of the team on the pitch with arcade controls for matches that play out in a similar way to New Star Soccer in that you only play the highlights, but when you do get control you can pass, head, shoot, dribble and tell players where to make their runs.
To give you an idea of how it all works, check out the trailer, below.
Anyway, as I said, England are going to win the World Cup 3-2 against Brazil in the final. You heard it here first.
