EA Brings Fifa To The Street

Electronic Arts announced today that Fifa Street is scheduled for release next year under the EA Sports BIG brand. The game is being produced by Electronic Arts Canada, the studio which also is home to the industry-leading Fifa Football video game franchise.

Fifa Street is a highly-anticipated combination of arcade action blended with the culture of freestyle street football. By removing the rules from the simulation football experience, Fifa Street exposes the heart of the world’s beautiful game, on-the-ball flare and individual style.

Players can show off their skills and individual style in 4-on-4 match-ups and s the first game to support dynamic 1-on-1 encounters, beating your opponent will require skill, technique, and the careful selection of specific moves. You’ll take on the best and be required to earn their respect, gradually building your reputation and team into an unstoppable force that leads the tide of street football.

What Fifa Street represents is a movement in football and a break from the modern game,” says Wil Mozell, senior producer for the project. “We are stripping the sport down to its core and delivering a game that’s all about freestyle attitude and individual skill, something I believe is at the heart of every football fan.”
